On this private walk through the old centre of Sicily’s second largest city, you will gain a good understanding of Catania’s rich and complex history, thanks to the various hallmarks that its many powerful conquerors have left. This private tour of Catania is integral to appreciating the whole history of this superb city and the entire Etna region, commencing with Catania’s Greek roots until its destruction in 1693, and its revival, which left important and beautiful baroque buildings.
The visit begins in Piazza Duomo, home to some of the city’s most important symbols: the Palazzo del Municipio, the statue of Liotru and, of course, the famous cathedral dedicated to Saint Agata. The visit continues with the recently restored Roman Theatre and Odeon, the imposing Benedictine monastery, and ends with a delightful walk through Catania’s most picturesque streets, Via Crociferi, Vittorio Emanuele and via Etnea, which are flanked with splendid baroque buildings.
