Catania Virtual Walking Tour – A Jewel at the Foot of Mount Etna
Discover the treasures of Catania! Nestled at the foot of Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano, and overlooking the eastern coast of Sicily, lies the city of Catania—a jewel of Sicilian Baroque architecture.
With the guidance of our local guide, we will take a virtual journey through Catania’s enchanting streets and alleys. From the awe-inspiring Cathedral of Sant’Agata to Via Crociferi, one of Catania’s most attractive streets, famous for its exuberant baroque churches and imposing 18th-century palazzi, from the historic Norman “Ursino” Castle to the lava stone-paved University Square, we will explore the heart of this magnificent city.
Let yourself be surprised by the beauty of Catania’s historic center, a UNESCO-listed site!
Did you know?
The city is also known as “the black city” because of the color of its buildings, blackened by the soot and ashes of the volcano, whose eruptions have often damaged or even destroyed the city. However, Catania has always been able to rebuild and each time it becomes even more beautiful!
