Wonderful tour of Catania
Paul_S, Sep 2023
We had a wonderful tour of Catania with our tour guide Elena. She was so very interested in making it a great experience. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city and we learned so much from her. We also got to try local food, desserts and beverages. However, this tour is challenging from a walking perspective so only choose it if in good shape and prepared for walking. All in all, a wonderful day in Catania.
Walking Catania Tour with Elena is a Must!

First day of our vacation in Catania and can’t recommend this tour enough! See the sights you want (and more), walk and get a lay of the land (so much to see/do in the immediate area) and best part is Elena, our fantastic guide! She was friendly, knowledgeable, shared interesting stories/theories and just a good person. It was like walking around town with a local friend. Thank you Elena; great way to start our trip!

Elena was an excellent guide. Her knowledge of the area and history were superb. We would highly recommend Elena to anyone visiting the area.
We met our guide from our cruise...

We met our guide from our cruise ship, we avoided paying for overly priced soulless cruise tours. It was immediately clear our guide would be showing us around 'his' city with pride and passion. We casually walked through the local markets seeing Catania in the raw, living and breathing the hustle and bustle of the fish and vegetable markets. We learnt about the rich often violent history of the city through a locals eyes, sipping the shortest espresso EVER! and sampling local fruit and cake. We returned to our cruise after a fascinating insight of a beautiful city, would highly recommend
Marco was our guide and picked us up...

Marco was our guide and picked us up right in front of our hotel in Catania. He knew all about the sites and area giving us great insight! He really looked after us and made sure we were comfortable and safe. It was a perfect tour to see the highlights of Catania, especially if you want to see more of the other sights in Sicily. The wine tasting was excellent and came with a wonderful meat, cheese and bread platter.
