Description

Join this guided tour and see Sicily's hidden gems. Discover the rich history of the picturesque town, Catania. Visit the Ursino Castle, the Cathedral of Sant'Agata, and the most famous theatre in Italy. Start your tour from the 13th-century Ursino Castle. Make sure you have your camera as you don't want to miss taking a snapshot of the superb architecture, a creative mix of Eastern and Western design. Pass by the Via Auteri, the Roman baths, and you will see Catania's fish market. Marvel at the array of sea creatures as you walk along. From the fish market, you will head to the Piazza del Duomo. Admire the Baroque buildings and the elephant fountain.  Next, you will visit the Cathedral of Sant'Agata, built-in 1090 above the Roman baths of Achille. After the earthquake of 1693, the Cathedral was completely rebuilt. Inside, see the tomb of the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini and many Aragonese kings.  Feeling hungry? No worries, enjoy some famous Sicilian arancino, a specific product in the shape of a drop and filled with rice and meat sauce, to be eaten strictly with the hands holding it from the bottom end. Continue walking to the Bellini Theater, which stages the Opera. Admire the magnificent building. Make sure you take pics as you will want to get this impressive building on your Instagram feed.  Next, stroll along to the Via Vittorio Emanuele. Finally, the tour will end at the Benedictine monastery and the Church of San Nicolò.
