There are several reasons why you should go to La Pescheria in Catania whether it's to please your eyes or your nose, while taking in all the gorgeous flavours of pastries, or thea wide range of cheeses and breads. Looking for some fresh fish? Take your pick from fresh oysters, octopus, lobster, sardines or still squirming eels, crabs and shellfish.
The focal point is a huge gushing marble fountain, which is supplied by water from the underground river Amenano.
Once when you have worked up an appetite from walking and browsing around, stop for a while to taste fresh bread, olives, best Sicilian ham or fantastic and juicy peaches. Or call in a local market trattoria for espresso while listening to the local chat and buzz.
La Pescheria market starts from Via Garibaldi and spreads over few nearby alleys and small squares.
Best time: early in the morning.
