I grew up in Germany. I learned about Sicily as an adult. Even today I am amazed by the aunt things I find. Catania is my adopted city. Today the world is coming towards me and I welcome it with open arms.

Tour description

This city of lava mesmerized me. Catania is full of myths and legends and all so current! This is where the story happened! None of the historical eras has been denied, they are all still there... and visibly there. The scent of good food, good wine, special desserts! But let's not get distracted: the historic center of Catania with the skyline, Piazza Duomo, Castel Ursino, the Greco-Roman ruins, the Baroque reconstruction and much more.

Maria versteht es, die Seele Siziliens in lebendigen Anekdoten zur Geschichte der Stadt erfahrbar zu machen. Sie ist eine faszinierende und sehr kompetente Erzählerin. Wir haben nicht nur viel über die Stadt und ihre Geschichte sondern auch über die Bräuche und ihren Ursprung erfahren. Und last but not least: sie führte uns zu typischen Restaurants und wusste auch hier Aufschlussreiches zu den typischen Spezialitäten zu erzählen. Das war keine Führung, das war ein bezaubendes Erlebnis. Absolut zu empfehlen!

It's the second tour I did with Maria and it's always an adventure. Once, I did the tour with a friend and I returned with my family. She plays a big part in my love for Catania, as she introduced me to the unique feminine history of Sicily and especially Catania with St. Agatha. I can highly recommend a tour with Maria!
