Baroque and Esoteric Catania - Free walking tour
Visit Catania with a British Polyglot Hi, my name is Natalie Maria Facenna, I am a native English speaker from the United Kingdom of Italian origin and I have been living in Italy for 16 years. I became an official licensed tour guide in 2017 in the city of Palermo where I lived for 9 years and subsequently moved to Catania where I currently live. I graduated from the University of Glasgow in Hispanic Studies and I am a polyglot (Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan). I also completed a Masters in Tourism Management at a University in Milan and I have studied in Spain and Brazil. I am a cultural expert and my specialties are the Baroque era, religious tourism, esoteric and popular tradition. I can tailor-make tours to meet the demands of the tourist and make them memorable for years to come. Read about my tour and don't hesitate to contact me for further information. Come to Catania, you won't regret it.
Catania is a unique and mysterious city famous for its Baroque architecture, Mount Etna, and Greek origins, but it also has a hidden esoteric side. Traces of the Greek Goddess Athena and the ancient Egyptian Isis are evident throughout the city. Seafood cuisine, ricotta cheese cannolo, wines, and honey along with its spectacular beaches makes it a must-see destination.
I invite you to come and discover this magnificent city and uncover its hidden gems.
