The harbor has been a fundamental resource for Catania’s economy. Tourism is remarkably developed, thanks to natural resources like Etna volcano, offering opportunities for excursions or sky vacations, and the splendid Ionian shore, featuring amazing spots, resorts and fishing villages.
The province territory is largely covered by vineyards, divided into groups according to their geographical position and type of production. The first group refers to the Etna wines, furtherly splitted into three sub-groups according to the different quality produced. The second group refers to the Caltagirone’s grape varieties. The third and last group concerns the production of bodied and highly alcoholic wines.
