Living in Catania

Catania lies at the foot of Mount Etna in eastern Sicily. A World Heritage city, the dynamic economy which has earned Catania the nickname of 'the European Silicon Valley’ offers expatriates living in Catania a Mediterranean lifestyle and opportunity to live in a city of contrasts. The older Baroque architecture of the downtown area and the modern commercial center are strikingly different, attracting businesses and expatriate employees to Catania. Meeting other expats in Catania through networking via the InterNations website is made possible by registering as a member and using the online forums and discussion groups to find people of a similar professional standing as business acquaintances, and also to share social and cultural activities in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Moving to Catania

All expatriates moving to Catania or elsewhere in the world know just how frustrating and stressful the relocation process can be. Planning and coordinating the move, followed by your arrival in what may be a strange country with its own customs and practices, can be daunting, even to the most seasoned of expats. Becoming a member of InterNations grants expatriates access to fellow expats and global minds around the world as well as those residing in Sicily and Catania itself. There may be questions you need answers to, and whilst it is best to use the forums to seek answers regarding specific local matters, the InterNations’ Expat Magazine exists to assist expats throughout the world and should be of assistance to you on general matters. The magazine contains numerous articles covering the common problems encountered during relocation and life abroad, and it is advisable to read it prior to beginning the process and again on arrival in Catania.

Working in Catania

Catania is a center of the petrochemical industry in Sicily, and also the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The thriving commercial center earned the city its nickname as the 'European Silicon Valley', with many international technological companies operating in Catania. Finding expats working in Catania and Sicily itself is an easy process, thanks to the InterNations portal offering the opportunities for networking and building both business and social contacts on the island. InterNations members may forge cultural and social links and arrange to meet fellow expatriates for companionship and enjoyment of the many attractions Catania can offer. Visits to archaeological sites, including the Fontana dell ‘Enfente, an ancient lavic stone elephant preserved in the Piazzo Duomo, and the Castello Ursino, a medieval castle which was originally built atop cliffs but now is some distance inland, are options for organized visits with fellow expats in Catania. Football and rugby clubs play in local leagues for the sports minded expatriate, whilst families will enjoy visits to the Etnaland theme park, some seven miles from Catania. And Mount Etna is, of course, a must see for expats living in Catania.
