The Port of Catania
The main feature of the port of Catania is its centrality. Over time this has meant frequent commercial connections both with the ports of the Adriatic and with those of the Tyrrhenian corridor.
In particular, then, with Naples and Salerno the connections , as well as commercial, are also tourist . Especially during the summer, in fact, there are many passengers who prefer to reach Sicily by ferry, thus relieving some of the congestion of the Salerno - Reggio Calabria road artery and the maritime connections in the Strait of Messina.
But the port of Catania is also central to land connections. The Etnean capital , in fact, is at the center of 6 provinces - there are 9 in all - of Sicily. Furthermore, it is necessary to remember the proximity to the other territorial mobility networks: the Fontanarossa airport, just a few kilometers away; and the railway station, about 1 kilometer.
In short, a port in the center of the Mediterranean , equally distant from other European ports and from those of North Africa. An aspect, the latter, which has also led to a development of the cruise sector without forgetting, of course, boating andfishing , both professional and sporting.
