Catania has a population of 300,000 and is located in the east of Sicily. The city has a metro line that is only 4 kilometers long and was opened in 1999. It is the southernmost metro system in Europe. It runs partly on the former route of the narrow-gauge "Circumetnea" railway, which terminates in to Borgo today. The trains are unfortunately very neglected and smeared with graffiti.
The metro and the narrow-gauge railway are operated by → Ferrovia Circumetnea (FCE)
