General

Pick up at your accomodation and departure to Catania.

The city was born in 728 BC, like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, it was destroyed many times by earthquakes, lava and bombing, that’s why today we can admire a great mix of different styles, from the roman buldings until the modern architectures.

An expert guide will walk with you thourgh the streets of the historical center to discover the “Black City” so called because because most of the monuments and buildings are built of lava stone.

You will start the tour from Piazza Duomo, where you will visit the cathedral dedicated to S.Agata and the fish market, full of colours and flavours. Then you will discover the ancient city with the roman amphiteathre, the greek teathre and the small “odeon”. The massive “Castello Ursino” built during the XIII century by Frederick the 2nd and the beautiful “Via Crociferi”, rich in baroque churches and monastryes and UNESCO listed. At the end you will taste some delicious “cannoli” or “granite”, typical sweets of Catania and the so called “minnuzzi di Sant’Agata” dedicated to the patroness of the city.
