What To Expect
We will start from a green area in front of the harbor, where we will learn together how to use our Segway PT. From here we will reach Piazza Duomo, the heart of the town where we can find Catania's symbol (an elephant in lava stone) and the city hall.
Taking via Etnea we will cross Piazza Università. From here we will go to Piazza Vincenzo Bellini where there is the wonderful lyrical theatre named after Vincenzo Bellini.
As we continue along Via Etnea, we will reach Piazza Stesicoro, where we will see the ruins of the Roman amphitheater and the monument to Vincenzo Bellini, Catania's swan.
Having covered another section of Via Etnea, a vibrant street with commercial activities and meeting places, we will cross the green area of the public garden, well known as "Villa Bellini". From here we will reach the high part of the town where we will admire the church San Nicola and the Benedictine's Monastery.
After that, we will enter the baroque town, crossing Via Crociferi, chosen by different film makers to be the set of many movies (such as "Storia di una capinera - Sparrow" by Franco Zeffirelli and "I Vicerè - The viceroys" by Roberto Faenza). After passing under the arch San Benedetto and heading to Piazza San Francesco and then to Piazza Federico di Svevia, we will discover the 13th century castle built by Ursino, the only evidence still visible of the medieval town.
At the end of the tour, we will go back to Villa Pacini.
