Catania is a pretty cool place to spend Christmas Festivities and New Year’s Eve celebrations since the city is fully prepared with loads of events and parties including the traditional NYE celebrations at Piazza Duomo and Piazza Università.
This time, Catania NYE is devoted to Vincenzo Bellini, a prominent italian opera composer known as “the Swan of Catania" and considered a symbol of the city.

Video mapping projections on buildings, spectacular choreographies and an original remix of Bellini’s music will make your stay in Catania worthwhile. A New Year means a new beginning and chance to live your life to the fullest so let yourself be surprised by what this city has to offer.
