A stroll in the heart of the baroque town. The colours, the sounds, the people, an underground river that becomes a fountain (the Amenano), the old Acropolis, today  “via Crociferi”, Verga’s and Bellini’s homes, the imposing Ursino Castle, Saint Nicola’s Church with its spectacular size, the Monastery of Saint Nicolò l’Arena, the Roman Amphitheatre (second in size only to the Colosseum), the famous “via Etnea”, Bellini’s Garden, and the most beautiful building in town:  “Palazzo Biscari”.

Greater charm is discovered in Catania by night. Then, at dawn, you really can’t miss a visit to the fish market.
