The visit will start from the real heart of Catania, the Roman Amphitheatre, built using basaltic dark lava stones, at a lower level than the baroque town. You will enjoy a special baroque atmosphere strolling at your own pace through its elegant buildings, squares and splendid churches. An expert guide will also introduce you to three thousand years of foreign domination on the island.

You will see archaeological finds showing you the layers below the baroque town, dating back to the Roman period, the University Palace with its lovely courtyard (not on Sunday) decorated with Etna pebble mosaic, The Cathedral (fortress church), two of the "Seven Doors" protecting S. Agatha's treasure and the famous "candelora" (weighing around 2.500 pounds-1 ton, 200 kg), in full silver sculptured by hands and carried on people's shoulders all around the town during the patron saint's celebration week.

According to your taste and needs, you can also choose, still included in this itinerary, the visit of Giovanni Verga's House or Vincenzo Bellini House or walk 10 more minutes and see the Ursino Castle, where Frederic the second lived. You can also find an abundance of quaint shops, boutiques, great restaurants, very tempting cafeterias, with unique Sicilian ricotta or almond and pistachio cookies or traditional ice-creams (the first one in history was produced in this province).

Before finishing the tour, you can't miss a visit of "Pescheria", the open fish market which reminds us an African souk, with all the fishermen shouting their prices. In the heart of this colorful and picturesque open market, just in front of a typical "bancarella" (fish stall) you can taste some fried fresh fish matched with the best of Sicilian DOC (quality controlled) wine.
