IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE TRAVELER:
The Guiding Sicily Tourist Guides, covered by Civil Liability insurance to protect the customer, do not limit themselves to describing Catania in its peculiarities, but build an original path , offering the visitor many possible ways of use. The planning of the itinerary and the management of the guide service in fact require skills that only an authorized professional can offer. For this reason, at the end of the guided tour, we suggest the visitor to leave a contribution of at least 10 euros per person (children under 10 free).
If you have just arrived in Catania and want to orientate yourself around the city centre, this tour is for you!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The tour is especially designed for the late afternoon, so that in about 2 and a half hours we can see the colors of the city change quickly: from the afternoon light to the sunset light, until we say goodbye for (italian) dinner time.
It will be a small group tour (10, max 15 people!), for this reason it is required a minimum contribution of 10€ per person.
In this relaxing walk I will accompany you showing you the most interesting aspects of the center of Catania, from the monumental streets to the nightlife streets, up to a beautiful Street Art district.
We will not cross much the Via Etnea, the main street, so that you can really better understand what the center of Catania is like around it.
We will leave from Villa Pacini, to arrive after about 2 and a half hours in Piazza Teatro, where we will say goodbye.
I will also tell you about the culture of Catania and Sicily in general and I will give you some indications on the typical cuisine of the city.
We will slowly cross the whole center, touching the areas of the Fish Market, Castello Ursino, Via Crociferi, the Roman Amphitheater, until we cross the streets of the Catania nightlife.
Attention: for now I am a Tour Leader, not a Tour Guide, this means that I will give you significant elements of a tourist nature about what we are going to visit, without going into details. My role will be to accompany you through the city providing you with information about it, without explaining the details of any monument.
My intention is to give you the right orientation within the centre, so that you can cross it and live in complete autonomy 🙂
