Catania city private tour


I will guide you not only to the discovery of the most representative artistic sites of the city of Catania, but also to the disclosure of its local culture, contrasting stories, traditions and folkloristic neighborhoods.

Catania is the city at the feet of the highest active volcano of Europe "mount Etna" and our relationship with Etna might be the key to understand the uniqueness and beauty of my city.

With a real passionate local guide you will get a first-hand contact with the soul of Catania and bring back home an authentic and long-lasting memory of the “black and white city”.

We meet in Piazza Universit where you will be introduced to Catania origins and natural events that moulded our city, such as the 1669 lava flow and the disastrous 1693 earthquake of Val di Noto.

We reach Duomo square, where the famous Liotru, the elephant of Catania, is waiting for us. Some unexpected connections with ancient legends and myths of Sicily will cast a new light on the symbolic animal of the city. We will also see the Cathedral and the city hall courtyard, both guardians of the past and present memory of our Saint Patron, Agata.

Beyond the curtains of the scenic Amenano fountain, we enjoy the impact with the hectic and colourful fish market.

The protagonists are you, who walking among the scents, the colors and the screams of the vendors will collect, if you want, pieces of Sicily to take home.

From profane to sacred, we leave the noisy market to reach the religious silence of via Crociferi, the Holy way, example of the most beautiful Baroque of Catania. Here we will learn how thin threads still connect us with that Catania city that disappeared with the 1693 earthquake.

Hidden palaces, nestled in the traditional baroque architecture, tell us that even a relatively small city like Catania, can preserve the signs of the great historical changes that affected Europe in the past centuries.

Finally in connection with Catania, the time is ripe to listen and understand the sicilian legends depicted in the lampposts of Piazza Universit .

Our last stop will be the roman Amphitheatre, here is where the medieval city ended, protected by the walls. Its uniqueness lies in the black lava stone. We are such stuff as Etna is made of.

We say goodbye, aware of how much more is left to discover, in fact it will not be goodbye but an arrivederci!

*entrance to the sites is free but also depends on opening times and mass times*
