your experience

Are you up for joining a 3-hour walking tour to sample mouthwatering Sicilian street food? Follow an expert local guide through the bustling Piazza Duomo and enjoy a quick historical introduction to the city before heading to the fish market, better known as "la Peschiera." Taste some fresh fish and watch your guide interact with the fishmongers and reveal to you the secrets of market life. Stroll into Villa Pacini and see where the elderly meet every morning to play Sicilian cards. Dig into delicious arancini before making your way to a secret underground spot. This is where you can see the Amenano river flowing along a lava tunnel. Devor some more tasty food such as spicy anchovies, baked cipollina, and some toast. Your guide will let you in on the fascinating history behind each recipe. Stop by the majestic Casello Ursino, and end your tour with something sweet: a seasonal treat, the fresh granita with brioche, or the delicate minnuzza cake. You will even receive a little souvenir - a personal Catania Food Passport that lists all the samples offered along the walk. On its back cover is an easy Catania street food tour map!

If you'd like to add some magic to your street food tour, sign up for the night tour. Step into some authentic street food spots, underground lava tunnels, and graffiti squares you would hardly find on your own - especially in the nighttime. See la Pescheria and the old Civita under the blanket of the stars. The night tour is also your chance to tuck into the most beloved local bite, the Carne di Cavallo (horse meat)! Needless to say, a drink is in order - beer, of course, and also the traditional Catanese Seltz (fruit sodas). As you munch on deli bites and fish and delight your palate, your guide will inspire your curiosity with interesting street stories and urban legends. Finish off your tour with the Sicilian granita and brioche while sitting in the elegant square of Massimo opera house. Both the day and night tours include a small group of a maximum of 8 foodies to make sure everyone has an intimate city experience.
