My name is Ivan, I am a tour guide and tour leader with regular qualification to operate throughout the territory of the Sicily region. "Son of Mongibello" I have deepened the history of my land through different courses of study (degree in modern literature with historical-artistic address, three-year degree in tourism sciences and specialist in History of Art) which have given the theoretical basis to my work. I also strengthened my knowledge in the food and wine field by attending cooking classes. My other passions: photography, cinema, music and literature. I like to design new and original itineraries. Always available for those who want to discover the true soul of Sicily.

About the Tour

With me you can take a "sentimental walk", because only those born in this city can help you discover it. But it is not enough just to be born in a place to get to know it better, it is also necessary to study it under all possible aspects: historical, artistic, economic, social. What I will tell you is the real life of the city and its most illustrious children. I will talk to you about literature, music, movies, cooking. I will show you in a few hours all that this city can offer according to your needs and interests, because the visit is also an encounter.
Our walk will start from Villa Pacini and will end in Piazza Università in a circular itinerary that will embrace almost the entire historic center with its most important monuments:

  • Piazza Duomo
  • Cathedral
  • Palace of the Elephants
  • Fishmonger
  • Ursino Castle
  • Mazzini square
  • Via Dei Crociferi
  • Via Etnea
  • University Square

Ivan no solo fue un buen guía si no que va mucho más, ya que además de contarte las historias e información de Catania, profundiza cada tema para tener mayor conocimiento de Sicilia. Sin duda un tour de 10! 100% recomendable, además sigan sus recomendaciones para ir a comer por Catania.
