Christmas in Catania

December 24, 2009

We ventured to Catania three times this week. Twice at night and once during the day to explore the Villa Bellini Park (which we were disappointed to discover is closed for renovation). It's the second largest city in Sicily and a fairly short trip for us. Just can't seem to get enough of the energy, the lights, the shop windows, and the festive feel this time of year.
