An eco-sustainable facility

Both the Port System Authority of Eastern Sicily and the Catania Cruise Terminal, have always given great importance to eco-sustainability so it is expected that recycled materials, and solar panels will be used in the new terminal. 

A portfolio of 21 ports in 13 different countries

Catania’s cruise terminal is managed by Catania Cruise Terminal which is part of Global Ports Holding, the largest independent operator of cruise terminals in the world, with a consolidated presence in the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Asia-Pacific regions. Thanks to recent global acquisitions Global Ports Holding manages a portfolio of 21 ports in 13 different countries, with over 4,000 berthings every year.

The terminal is just ten minutes from the city centre

Positioned at the center of the Mediterranean, equidistant from the Suez Canal, Gibraltar and all the North African and European ports, Catania is easy to include in any cruise itinerary. The proximity of the cruise terminal to the city centre (only ten minutes on foot) and to Catania’s international airport (ten minutes by car), as well as to bus and train stations, make it the ideal port for cruise ships. 

Excursions to Mount Etna and Taormina

Catania also boasts exciting shore excursions that can be booked directly on board or at the Guest Information Center on arrival at the port. From excursions to Mount Etna to local food and wine experiences, and from shopping to a day at the beach and visits to Taormina and Syracuse. Although the services are temporarily suspended due to the pandemic, the Guest Information Center also has electric bicycle and scooter rentals, so that tourists can enjoy green tours of Catania.
