Catania Group Tour (from Catania – half day)

Sicily/Catania

Our tour will start by visiting Piazza Stesicoro, where the Roman Amphitheatre, which dates back to the II century, is located. Going along Via Etnea, we will reach Via dei Crociferi, one of the most beautiful baroque roads in Italy, full of churches, closed at north end by the entrance portal of villa Cerami (which is now the Faculty of Law) and at south end by the arch of S. Benedetto. We will then arrive in Piazza Università where the imposing Central Building of the University is located. The tour continues in Piazza Vincenzo Bellini which is famous because of Teatro Massimo, and we will then reach Piazza Duomo, where we will find “u liotru”, (elephant in Sicilian) symbol of the city, and the Cathedral. After going through the typical Pescheria (fish market), we will arrive at the Castello Ursino, that today hosts the civic museum of Catania.
