Full description
Set off on a journey through the flavors, aromas, and gastronomic traditions of Catania. Start from the meeting point in Piazza Duomo 18, in front of the pharmacy. Admire the Town Hall, the wonderful St. Agata's Cathedral, the Obelisk of the elephant or “Liotru” (symbol of the city) and the Amenano fountain. Continue on Via Etnea, Catania's main street whose name comes from the Etna volcano, visible from the beginning to the end of the boulevard. Pass through Piazza Università with its magnificent baroque buildings, erected after the destruction of the earthquake of 1693. Discover Via dei Crociferi, a small jewel of baroque art and churches, often immortalized by the greatest Italian filmmakers. During the walk, taste a good selection of local products. Savor refreshing drinks that you can taste in the kiosks in the central squares, such as lemon mandarin, and seltz lemon and salt.

It's worth it despite the high price

Really recommend! The tour started over time and takes place with few participants (we were only 3), which makes it particularly recommendable. Absolutely do without breakfast, you will be sooooo full! The guide was very nice, spoke very understandable English and also told one or the other exciting story about Catania. It also shows nice restaurants and places that tourists would otherwise not come across.

It was very nice to see the fish market, it was for me very very impressive. Interesting to see how local people stop for kiosk to take a glass of drink and than return to their daily life.
