Here all the typical handicraft products of the area are exhibited. Tourists greatly appreciate the handmade creations and do not miss the opportunity to buy some gifts for Christmas.
The lights in Catania are truly suggestive constructions. It is possible to witness the lighting of the Christmas tree entirely made up of lights. The tree is very impressive, in fact it reaches 12.5 meters in height and is always positioned at Piazza Università.
The colors that characterize it are always red and blue. The rest of the beautiful lights are mainly concentrated in via Etnea but, in general, the city is embellished in every corner. Don't forget to enjoy the beautiful Merry Christmas Market where you can buy Christmas-themed souvenirs and trinkets.
The activities for children are also very special. If yours is a family trip, don't forget the many initiatives aimed at children. It would be great for them to pay a visit to Santa's village to post the letter and participate in the Christmas-themed workshops.

Renting a car in Catania during Christmas will allow you to optimize the time available and not depend on public transport. In fact, during the Christmas holidays, Catania becomes very chaotic and crowded.

Getting a rental car translates into autonomy and fun. Imagine how nice it would be to drive in the streets of Catania and enjoy the Christmas lights from the car window.
