Blogger-photographer Laura La Monaca of Daily Breakfast captured 33 beautiful reasons why she lives in Milan, but her hometown of Catania, Sicily, offers very different charms. The largest region of Italy, Sicily lies at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea.
“Catania, on the coast, is in a privileged position,” says La Monaca. “It is on the slopes of Mount Etna and overlooks the Ionian Sea. For this reason, the greater area has scenery and views, along with a unique culinary tradition that is one of the most special in all of Sicily.”
Here, she shares some of her local’s guide to the best places to eat, drink and explore in Catania.
