Streaty Catania – Summer Tour

About this tour

The authentic street food tour of Catania. A relaxing 3hr walk with a young licensed guide to enjoy the markets and monuments of the city center and taste the best local street food.

Streaty Catania has been designed with the specific purpose of giving travelers the chance to live a 100% Catanese Experience…a tasty one!  The vibrant 2700 year old city of Catania hides many unexpected flavours that you won’t find in restaurants or listed in guidebooks!

Not only food! The itinerary goes through the main historical streets and squares of the city center, such as piazza Duomo, the Pescheria (fish market), via dei Crociferi and piazza Stesicoro, to give participants a complete overview of local history and culture. All Streaty guides are fully-licensed to lead travelers in all historical sites. Visits inside churches or historical palaces are not included on this tour. For customized walks please check our private tours page.

Streaty Catania is better recommended as first activity in town. This is also the ideal shore excursion for cruisers spending few hours in town: Streaty gives cruisers the chance to maximize their short stay and catch the real soul of Catania in few steps and few bites.

Why joining both Catania and Palermo experience? Well…you will be surprised to find out how the two cities taste different. It isn’t just about food, it’s also about language, colors, landscape, architecture and much more! As for me, Marco, I couldn’t but offer both experiences since my grandpa was Catanese and my Grandma Palermitana. It’s a family thing you know!
