Here’s some essential information for campervan travellers in Catania
Our depot is located in the area of Fontanarossa, a 20-minute drive from Catania’s city-centre and an 8-minute drive from Catania–Fontanarossa Airport (CTA). Are you starting your road trip in Catania? If you arrive by airplane, we’ll pick you up at Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (CTA) and take you to the depot where we’ll get you familiar with your campervan. After returning your RV to the depot, we’ll take you back to the airport. Free of charge in regular hours, of course.
There‘s a lot of congestion in Catania and traffic is somewhat of a mess, making a free parking spot essentially impossible to find. If you choose to hire a campervan, it’s best to park it at the public parking near Piazza Falcone-Borsellino, or at one of the private parking garages such as Piazza Lupo Garage.
There are great camping options for those hiring a campervan in Catania, such as Campeggio Paradise, 45 minutes from the city, or Camping Almoetia, 40 minutes from the city. We especially recommend Camping Sabbiadoro, rated one of the 70 best campsites in Italy, right by the beach and close to the Greek archeological site of Syracuse — one hour in your hire van from Catania.
Carved from rock straight from the volcano’s mouth and defying nature’s desire to wipe it away, Catania is a straight-talking and spirited city with some lovely Baroque piazzas too.
Situated on Sicily’s east coast, overlooking the Ionian Sea and lying at the feet of the infamous Mount Etna, Catania’s down-to-earth beauty doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. Sicily’s second largest city after Palermo, Catania, with its gritty charm and slightly unkempt allure, has none of the pretensions but just as many delights as the capital to offer. It has known catastrophe: devastated by earthquakes in 1169 and 1693 and by Mount Etna’s eruptions, the most violent of which was in 1669. Its buildings may fall but Catania stands firm. Rising from the greying ashes of these disasters, robust spirit intact, this is a city that boasts UNESCO-listed architecture, intriguing folklore and traditions, exceptional gastronomy, Roman ruins, and, of course, the every-watching Mount Etna. So why rent a campervan in Catania? With its palaces, churches, and ruins from centuries past as well as sun, sand, and other simple pleasures, it’s the perfect city to enjoy the seductive Sicilian lifestyle –– and the ideal starting point for a road trip!
