AT the foot of one of the world’s most active volcanoes lies an Italian city where Brits flock in their thousands for boozy fun.

Despite being close to Mount Etna, the fiery cobblestone streets are filled with more than 500,000 revellers a year.
It has also become a Brit hotspot for its hot summer nights that allow for partying until the sun comes up.
The 17th-century downtown area is where the lively bar crawls happen.
Pictures show masses of glam women dancing the night away fuelled by rounds of affordable Aperol Spritz.
And the men, glued to the bar stools with local pints going for £3.50.
One of the main attractions is Catania’s Original Pub Crawl.
During four hours, copious complimentary shots and drink specials are consumed.
One of the most frequented stops, La Chiave, sells upmarket cocktails such as Negronis or Boulevardiers for a mere £4.
Sue from Bedfordshire found herself in one of the many chic bars the city had to offer.
She said: “We loved the San Berrillo District.
“The first lounge bar was good too.”
Other popular spots include La Flora, Dracula Wine Bar, Maxony Wine Bar, and Ferro Bar.
“Great cocktails and a wide selection of beers and wines – it’s a really nice place to be,” one review said.
“It’s a perfect place if you are seeking a social life,” a second read.
“Besides the very good range of cocktails, beers, and wines you will always find a DJ set or live music,” another wrote.
Revellers party the night away at venues such as ECS Dogana nightclub.
The website MyGuide Sicily says that Catania promises “partying in clubs, discos and lounge bars, dancing until dawn on the beach, events in hotels, wineries, and lidos”.
