Our guide was very knowledgable and clearly had lots to share with us! We really enjoyed learning about the history, architecture, and legends of Catania, as well as the daily life. I gave 4 stars because we stood in one place for long periods of time. I think the visit to St. Lucia’s cathedral could have been a bit shorter (we were there for about an hour) in order to allow more time for other parts of the city centre. Our guide (so sorry I forgot her name!) also shared recommendations for local foods and where we could try them. There was plenty of time for questions.

Tania was an excellent guide, passionate and dynamic. We took a nice walk for a couple of hours, simple and easy for everyone, so much so that we were with our almost 3-year-old little girl, with a stroller in tow, so as not to create slowdown problems for us or the others. It was very funny!

I am very happy to give a nice 5 stars to this experience because we were lucky enough to have a guide who loves his work and who loves the city of Catania, so he simply conveyed everything to us with a beauty and a descriptive ability that was a nice to hear it. After the end of the visit we went for lunch with the guide to Piazza Scamacca, a kind of covered "central market" born from an idea of young people from Catania, and which includes various gastronomic corners, each of which offers a certain category of food ( pasta, desserts, sandwiches, meat) both from Sicily and from other Italian regions (eg Panem offers 21 different sandwiches, each inspired by an Italian region). Highly recommended experience if you don't have much time to get around Catania and want to spend a couple of hours letting you tell the story of Catania and Sicily.
