Perched on three different hills offering stunning views of the valley below, Caltagirone is one of the oldest cities in Sicily. Inhabited since pre-historic times, this is where ceramic pottery was born and was an essential part of their trade.

With a population of nearly 40,000, the small city is built mostly in Baroque style with numerous grand architectural buildings in the historical centre and as a result has been classified as an UNESCO world heritage site. Its most famous landmark is the magnificent stairs, Santa Maria del Monte, which consists of 142 colourful ceramic steps. There are various festivals during the year that celebrate the stairs with candles, flowers and stars. The splendid balcony of Casa Ventimiglia, the beautiful public garden known as Villa Comunale and the Ceramic Museum are also must sees. The city has a wide range of bars and restaurants to enjoy the Sicilian nightlife and especially on weekends where children hang out in the old town and at the steps for the evening. Well connected with a bus system and a train station, Caltagirone is a good location to visit other places of interests in Sicily. Sicilians are truly the warmest and most hospitable people who are both curious and welcoming to foreigners.
