Catania is located on the east coast of Sicily and has 370,000 inhabitants (700,000 in the metropolitan area).
Metropolitan di Catania opened on June 27, 1999 between Borgo and the Port:
03/2017: 7 km, 9 stations, track 1435 mm
The metro first ran underground between Borgo and Piazza Galatea, then on the surface along a single-track line along the coast to Catania's central railway station (FS) and further south to the harbor (Porto). The underground track actually replaced the land track built in 1895.
Finally, in December 2016, the underground line was completed to serve the city center in Stesikoro.
