Due to COVID travel restrictions, we decided to do a "staycation" activity. Some features of this tour had to be modified due to COVID (e.g. cafe's now close at 6 pm), but the walking tour portion was informative and our guide, Anna knew much about the history of Catania. An enjoyable evening!

You really get a first overview of the city during this 3h tour. The aperitifs were well chosen: first various fish arancini, then a platter with various meat and cheese specialties and a second platter with warm vegetables, together with a glass of wine and to end typical sweet specialties and this is 3 different locations.
