Food tour

Art and food tastings strolling in the old town

A slow tour, a charming walk in the heart of Catania in contact with art, people and traditional food. A different way to discover one of the most ancient and fascinating city in Sicily along with its local delicacies, from Baroque churches and palaces to the voices from the food market, with its lively and colorful streets.

At the Pescheria – the historical fish and food market – discover our favourite pecorino cheese with black pepper and a selection of dried fruit, as the calia: chikpeas cooked in hot sea sand. Along our way we won’t miss a pastry tasting in one of the most appreciated pastry shops in town. Final stop is a caffè for a tasting of Sicilian street food – as for the arancino in its Catanese version with fried eggplants and basil – or a trattoria, perfect place to enjoy a nice buffet of tasty appetizers such as caponata, eggplant parmigiana, zucchini in agrodolce with ricotta salata cheese and mint…
