Catania walking tour by night with a licensed tour guide. If Catania fascinates you during the day with its smells and the voices of its markets, at night it totally envelops you. The city of Verga and Bellini, filmed by Bolognini and Germi, sung by Battiato and Consoli, has a night and restless soul that lights up at sunset. There is a sort of physical need in the inhabitants to meet each other in the streets. At sunset, you can experience another dimension and another face as it happens in each big metropolis. The guided tour of Catania starts from the Ursino castle, a building commissioned by Emperor Frederick II of Swabia, on an old Norman fortress, built between 1239 and 1250. The castle has a square plan, with four sides around an inner courtyard. Four round corner towers make it as strong as the models of the French castles. Then, passing from Via Auteri in front of the ruins of the Roman baths, you will reach the fish market of Catania and the life of the 'fish market' the food market and the beating heart of the city. From the fish market, a staircase leads directly to Piazza del Duomo with its numerous Baroque buildings and the emblem of Catania, the Elephant Fountain. Here we will visit the Cathedral of Sant'Agata built in 1090 above the Roman baths of Achille, right in the place of the martyrdom of Sant'Agata in 251. After the earthquake of 1693 it was completely rebuilt. Inside you can see the tomb of the famous composer Vincenzo Bellini and many Aragonese kings. After seeing the cathedral you will continue in the direction of the Bellini Theater, one of the most famous theaters in Italy, in neo-Renaissance style, inaugurated in 1890. After a few steps you will pass the Roman Theater and continuing along Via Vittorio Emanuele the tour will end at the Benedictine monastery and the church of San Nicolò. Meeting point piazza Duomo/via Merletta (Info Point)
