Catania Fontanarossa Airport Car Rental

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.

Some beautiful towns, countryside and historic sites in southern Sicily, a little spoiled by very tatty poly-tunnels and a great deal of fly-tipping in the Donnalucata region, away from the town itself, where our villa was situated.

Beautiful and dreamy and car rental is straightforward but slower than other places as lots of documentation and photocopying

Little bit difficult place to find and a bit of a trek, but then most of the car rental places are. Bit slow to process the booking, but mega quick on the return process and very efficient. Would have been nice to get a washed and clean car as it was pretty dirty. But rather have a spanking new dirty car, than a clean old banger.... No issues on drop off with chips, dents, scratches etc as we didn't make any....

Wonderful island to visit, the tiny hilltop towns were very interesting and each seemed to have Friendly people who enjoyed giving private tours, which including garages filled with carvings or stories about famous people like the mafia and musilini’s daughter (I think), like Nino who gave us some of his fortified wine and his address, pre-printed on a tiny piece of paper so we could send him the selfie! We stayed 3 days more than expected and didn’t see everything we wanted.

The centre of Catalonia is nice, and easy to reach by car. There are also lots of lovely places in the surrounding area that you need a car to reach.
