In fact, we always recommend going for a run or a bike ride on the Lungomare Ognina in Cataniavery close to the historic centre. The promenade is very close to the city centre, but it is an oasis of peace and serenity perfect for those who want to run or do any other outdoor sport.
Looking out over the sea, you can also take a bike ride in complete safety because there is a wide bike path. La Catania's seafront cycle path is 2.2 km long and starts from Piazza Europa and continues along Via Ruggero di Lauria to Piazza Mancini Battaglia. We recommend you walk it at sunset or with the first light of dawn.
