Catania Private Tour
At the time of your choice, we'll meet in Piazza Federico II, where we'll start our private tour of Catania approaching the Ursino Castle, the imposing fortress that dominates the square. Ready to go?
Built between 1239 and 1250 at the behest of Frederick II of Swabia, the imposing castle was the residence of the Aragonese rulers, including Frederick III. Today, it's one of Catania's most representative monuments and houses the city's civic museum. Its extraordinary size will leave you speechless!
After discovering the history of the castle, we'll walk along Via Autieri and the ancient Roman baths to reach the fish market, the beating heart of the city. Here, we'll stroll among the kiosks and stalls before reaching Piazza Duomo, where we'll find the city's emblem: the Elephant Fountain. Did you know that there are several theories about the origins of this particular sculpture? We'll tell you about it during the tour...
Next, we visit the Cathedral of St Agatha, built on the site of the martyrdom of the city's patron saint. Inside the cathedral, we'll see the tomb of the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini. What connection did the musician have with the Sicilian city? We'll find out!
The tour will continue to the Bellini Theatre, one of the most famous in Italy. A few steps away, we'll see the ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre and Piazza Dante. Here we'll see the Church of San Nicolò and the Benedictine Monastery, one of the largest monastic complexes in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After spending 2 hours discovering the most emblematic places in Catania, we'll say goodbye to our guide.
