Streaty Catania – Winter Tour

About this tour

The authentic street food walking tour of Catania. A relaxing 3 hr walk with a young licensed guide to enjoy the markets and monuments of the city center and taste the best local street food. Along the Catania street food tour, you will taste few delicious specialties, such as the cipollina (baked roll with mozzarella, tomato and spring onion), the pointed arancino (rice, minced meat, tomato and stringy mozzarella) and some fresh fish at the market! Just like all Streaty tours, the Catania street food walking tour ends with a seasonal sweet tune!  Food stops have been carefully selected based on the quality of the food and the authenticity of the location. This is a tourist-trap free tour!

Streaty Catania walking tour has been designed with the specific purpose of giving travelers the chance to live a 100% local experience…a tasty one!  The vibrant 2700 year old city of Catania hides many unexpected flavours that you won’t find in restaurants or listed in guidebooks!

Not only food! The itinerary goes through some major historical attractions such as piazza Duomo and the Castello Ursino, the pescheria (fish market), and via dei Crociferi, to give participants a complete overview of local history and culture. This street food and cultural experience is especially recommended as introductory tour of Catania. It is also an ideal shore excursion for cruisers spending few hours in town: Streaty gives cruisers the chance to maximize their short stay and catch the real soul of Catania in few steps and few bites.
