Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Catania Airport! Then head to the city, park your rental near the center, and walk down Via Etnea, Catania’s main shopping avenue. Feast your eyes on the mixture of Greek and Italian architecture—Castello Ursino is a beautiful example.

Stroll through the baroque Piazza del Duomo square and see the Elephant Fountain, the symbol of Catania. Next to it is the city’s fish market, which many consider to be one of the best fish markets in the world. Restaurants downtown offer great local cuisine, but if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, then drive to one of the nearby villages to explore the dining options.

Catania is a great place to visit, but why not see more? Get a longer term car rental to see more of Sicily, drive to the Italian mainland and visit the beautiful Calabria region, or head all the way to Apulia and Campania. You can even pick up your car at Catania Airport and drop it off in a different city! Start planning your adventure now!

Catania Airport is also known as Catania-Fontanarossa Airport and Aeroporto internazionale Vincenzo Bellini di Catania-Fontanarossa.
