Tour description

If you have just arrived in Catania and want to orientate yourself around the city centre, this tour is for you!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:ย  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.

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 :)

Realmente nos enseรฑo sitios muy "chulos", que sin duda le dieron un color especial a nuestro viaje a Catania. Fue un recorrido bien explicado, sin prisas, con tiempo para disfrutar de la ciudad

Das war eine der besten Free Walking Touren, auf denen wir je waren. Mirco war sehr entspannt und hat die wichtigsten Fakten zur Geschichte, der Stadt, den Leuten, Essen & Trinken und Kultur erzรคhlt. Obwohl die Tour fast 3 Stunden ging, war es kurzweilig und interessant. Wir haben Ecken der Stadt entdeckt, die wir sonst nie gefunden hรคtten und nun einen viel besseren รœberblick. Sehr netter Spaziergang mit einem fachkundigen und sympathischen Guide, die man allen nur empfehlen kann.

El free-tour ha resultado muy ameno porque Mirco dosifica la informaciรณn relacionada por ejemplo con fechas y datos histรณricos, limitรกndose a lo esencial, y porque explica cuestiones muy prรกcticas sobre la vida cotidiana en Catania
