The project place: Catania

The city of Catania is a relatively big city and you can find almost everything you would do in a major European City. There are a few beaches and of course the Etna Regional Park to explore. There is an abundance of café’s and patisserie’s to get food on the go and numerous amounts of bars and restaurants throughout.
Viagrande is a small town/village within the Catania Province it’s well connected with Catania by bus throughout the day and is surrounded by other villages like Trecastagni, Pedara and Aci Bonnaccorsi. If you’re happy to walk around it’s easy to get all the things you need from these villages as well as enjoy your free time.
