Unlike Palermo, Catania has a really kicking nightlife, perhaps influenced by the fact that it lies closer to the mainland than the capital does, or that the university has more students. Pubs and dance clubs rule the night, especially in the historical center of town. A fantastic way to start off the night and mingle with the locals is to head for an aperitivo.
