This park is well used by the locals. The grounds are well maintained and the gardeners do a good job. It is a big park which would be a useful place for jogging.

Just up the Via Etnea from the Una Hotel Palace, a breath of fresh air in the city centre. Really nice for a stroll with a central bandstand and views across Catania.

Bellini was a native of Catania. Best known for writing operas and classical music. My favorite is the opera Marta. The title aria was made famous by Pavarotti.
