First time in Catania, have a walk with Mirco!
Hi, I am Mirco! I am a 𝐡𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐝𝐞, 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫 and documentarist. I am 29 years old and I 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥 𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐥𝐲 shooting 𝐝𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 about each area I visit, to document it through short videos and tell it to the viewers. What I like above all is 𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐲 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐬 about Catania and Sicily in general. In absolute relax and without any hurry 𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐂𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐚 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐂𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐚'𝐬 𝐧𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞. I want to clarify that 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐚 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫, 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚 𝐠𝐮𝐢𝐝𝐞. This means that 𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐢𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭, 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐬. For this reason, during my tour, I will tell you a bit of everything, going from history to archeology, from the best restaurants to typical local cuisine :)
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 :)
