Catania is unique: elegant like a princess and passionate like a desperate loving prince. The black lava stone the draws the perfect lines of its architecture is Catania’s trademark. Photographer can hardly move their eyes off and evend if they did the beauty of the Sicilian city will remain printed in their sight for ever. One of the main sights of our Catania free walking tour is the central square of Catania called piazza Duomo, an authentic masterpiece of Souther Italian art. Travellers find themselves trapped in a cage of beauty: on a side the Duomo and its majestic dome, on the other sides the city hall and nobles palaces. These buildings face the worshipped lavic Elephant, the symbol of Catania. All of this beauty might make no sense without the explanation of a local tour guide who brings into life the statues and their voice: stories of centuries of glory, battles and credes. But piazza Duomo is only the business card of Catania. A free walking tour of Catania will make you enjoy much more than this. Step out the light of its large piazzas and follow your Freely guide as she walks you into the dark corners to show you the hidden gems of the city and other unmissable attractions: such as the Roman amphytheater of piazza Stesicoro and the church street of Via dei Crociferi.
