Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Piazza Duomo, Catania, Sicily Italy

At the GS (GuidingSicily) infopoint in Piazza Duomo you will meet one of us, all authorized guides with official licenses. Together we will go to the discovery of Catania, a city teeming with life and full of sounds, colors and smells, eager to discover itself in the prying gaze of the curious traveler.
Let’s start right from the DUOMO, Norman in origin and baroque in appearance, an imposing building that in a few decades celebrates its first thousand years of history. On this same square there is also Palazzo degli Elefanti, our Town Hall, and the fountain with the symbol of the city, the liotru, an elephant in lava stone surmounted by an obelisk.
If you have chosen the morning walking tour we will certainly not miss the adjacent historic fish market, where not only the freshest fish is exhibited, but you will find typical cold cuts and cheeses of the region, as well as fruit at literally bargain prices.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Palazzo degli Elefanti – World Heritage Site, Piazza Duomo 3, 95124 Catania, Sicily Italy

The Palazzo degli Elefanti is our Town Hall and is so called because of the representations of the majestic mammal in the gables of the balconies on the noble floor.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: A’ Piscaria Mercato del Pesce, Via Mulino Santa Lucia, 95121 Catania, Sicily Italy

Adjacent to Piazza Duomo is the fish market, a market held every day, where you can buy a wide range of local food products: from fish to meat, from cured meats to cheeses, from fruit to vegetables … do not lose!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Castello Ursino, Piazza Federico di Svevia, 95121 Catania CT, Italy

The majestic Swabian castle that once overlooked the sea is now located in the historic center: in the 17th century a mighty lava flow filled the moat and surrounded it with its red-hot embrace. Impressive is the black basalt still perfectly visible today.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Via dei Crociferi 95124, Catania, Sicily Italy

One church after another, one monastery after another … the numerous baroque facades built after the devastating earthquake of 1693 overlook this street making it one of the most fascinating on the whole island.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Piazza Universita, Catania, Sicily Italy

The Palazzo del Rettorato, seat of the oldest university in Sicily (1434), encloses a delightful courtyard on whose lava pebbles tens and tens of generations of students have passed. In front of it stands the imposing Palazzo di San Giuliano, also a university seat, formerly the home of one of the most powerful and richest families in Sicily.
