The street food of Catania is renowned not only for its unique flavours but also for its large variety. The itinerary offers the best of the city, from a gastronomic, historical and artistic point of view. All of this is crowned by our young guides who show passionately the historic beauty of Catania and reveal even the urban legends and folk tales which are hidden behind every monument. Most travellers think Sicilian food is the same all over the island, but Palermo and Catania have a very different heritage which has influenced their language and eating habits. Never ask for a “brioche” with ice cream in Catania, “Catanesi” only have it with granita (crushed ice flavoured with lemon, peach, coffee, etc.). Never mention horse meat in Palermo, “Palermitani” will walk away from you. But if you go to Catania, don´t miss out on a horse meat steak! The chefs are masters! There are a lot of differences between the cities´ food, but what you will always find is the welcoming spirit and the desire to show you our beautiful cities as they really are, also by keeping you away from tourist traps.
