Sicily is one of those places that most people never get to, but everyone should visit at least once. It's a fascinating and diverse island with a rich cultural heritage. It's known for its beautiful beaches, rugged landscapes, and ancient ruins, as well as its world-renowned cuisine and wine. Visitors to Sicily can explore the island's many historic cities and towns, soak up the sun on its beautiful beaches, and sample its delicious food and wine. Whether you're a history buff, a beach lover, or a foodie, Sicily has something to offer everyone.

The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea has a number of historic cities to visit. Catania is a vibrant coastal city located on the eastern coast of the island. It might not get the same publicity as Palermo, but it's perfectly worth a visit if you're traveling through Southern Italy. Just flying into Catania Airport (or Catania Fontanarossa Airport) is an exciting experience. Flyers will enjoy stunning views of the Sicilian coastline and the imposing Mount Etna. As you descend towards the airport, you'll see the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea and the rugged hills and mountains that surround Catania, you'll doubtless put the iPad or book away to enjoy the sights and let your excitement wash over you.

Once in Catania, you’ll immediately want to start exploring. But you might need somewhere to store luggage before check-in. Luckily, there are plenty of luggage storage locations in Catania. Here’s everything you need to know:

About Catania Airport

Once in Catania, you'll notice the warmth and hospitality of the Sicilian people and the vibrant energy of the city. It may feel overwhelming or offputting, especially if you're used to traveling in Northern Europe. Catania Airport itself has moderately accommodating facilities for passengers, including local shops, left luggage lockers, restaurants, and currency exchange services. Getting from the airport to the city center is extremely easy, with a few transportation options available, including taxis, city buses, and rental cars.

Catania Airport offers left luggage facilities where passengers can leave their bags for a few hours. These facilities are located in the Departures area and are open during the day. This is a limited luggage storage option, as you’ll need to securely store bags while you explore Catania. Luckily, Bounce is a luggage storage service with multiple locations (usually in partnering local shops) throughout Catania. 

Top attractions near Catania Airport

While Catania Airport is located just outside the city center, there are several attractions nearby that are worth a visit. Keep in mind there will be different luggage storage options at different attractions.

Roman Amphitheater of Catania luggage storage

One of the most popular landmarks is the ancient Roman amphitheater of Catania, which is located just a 10-minute drive from the airport. This impressive arena was built in the 2nd century AD and could seat up to 15,000 people for gladiatorial contests

Aci Castello luggage storage

The picturesque fishing village of Aci Castello is located just a 15-minute drive from the airport. Visitors can explore the stunning Norman castle that overlooks the sea and village or take a stroll through the charming streets and squares of the village. There are plenty of quaint cafes and restaurants to enjoy some classic seafood or an espresso.  

Mount Etna luggage storage

For those interested in nature or who enjoy fantasizing about massive volcanic explosions, a visit to Mount Etna is a must. This active volcano is located just a short drive from the airport and offers visitors the chance to explore its rugged terrain, take in breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape, and even hike to the summit. You’ll certainly want to utilize one of the local luggage storage facilities before heading to the mountain.

Taormina luggage storage  

This classic Sicilian town is located just a 45-minute drive from the airport and is home to truly stunning beaches, historic landmarks, and a vibrant cultural scene. There is a luggage storage facility in Taormina in case you need to store bags.

The Museo Storico dello Sbarco luggage storage

This is a notable WWII museum in Catania, offering a unique and informative experience for history enthusiasts. There are no baggage storage options onsite, and larger bags aren't allowed, so you’ll want to prepare ahead of time. 

Transportation options near Catania Airport 

Getting from Catania Airport to the city center

This is relatively easy as there are several transportation options available. The most convenient way to travel is by taxi or rental car, which can be found outside the arrivals area of the airport. Taxis usually have a fixed price to the city center, and the trip rarely takes longer than 40 minutes.

Alibus shuttle

The Alibus shuttle bus runs every 25 minutes between the airport and the city center. The bus stops at several locations, including the main train station and Piazza Stesicoro. The trip takes around 20-30 minutes. Tickets only cost around $5 per person.

Traveling elsewhere in Sicily

Getting from Catania Airport to other popular destinations in Sicily is best done by car or public transportation. Rental cars are available at the airport and offer visitors the flexibility to explore the island however they want. There are also regular bus and train services from Catania to other major cities in Sicily, including travel hotspots like Taormina, Siracusa, and Palermo. Buses are generally the cheapest option, with fares starting from around $6 per person, while trains offer a more comfortable and scenic option, although they can be more expensive.

Local tips and insider info 

  • Bring cash. While credit cards are widely accepted in major cities, it's a good idea to have cash on hand for smaller purchases and transactions.
  • Be polite and learn some Italian. While many people in major cities speak English, learning a few basic Italian phrases can go a long way in making your trip smoother and more enjoyable. There are plenty of apps and websites that can help you learn in only a few hours.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather and the location. Sicily can get hot and humid in the summer, so lightweight, breathable clothing is a must. However, it's important to dress modestly when visiting churches and other religious sites. Fortunately, the breeze of the Mediterranean is helpful during sweltering summer afternoons.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, and look out for pickpockets. As with any tourist destination, pickpockets can be a problem in busy areas. It's still a safe city, but be sure to keep your valuables secure and be vigilant when in crowded places.

Conclusion 

By leaving your bags in a secure luggage storage space, you'll have the freedom to explore the city and its surroundings without the hassle of carrying heavy luggage. There is both convenience and peace of mind in knowing exactly where your bags are and that they are in good hands.

Catania has lots of places to store luggage, including at Catania Centrale Train Station. Sicily's other major city, Palermo, also has plenty of storage options at Palermo Airport and Palermo Train Station. These are only a few of Bounce's luggage storage spots that will come in handy during your trip.
