Let’s discover the second largest town in Sicily! Living in Sicily since over 30 years in a small town, this is my favourite big city for its glamour and the air of hectic activity of its citizens.

Founded by the Greeks in the 8th century BC on foot of the highest volcano in Europe, Catania is also called the Milan of the South thanks to its bustling economic activity.

Rebuilt after the terrible earthquake of 1693 in baroque style, Catania is also called the black town because of the common use of lava stone as a building material!

In around two hours and a half you will discover the main highlights of Catania, such as the cathedral, the medieval castle Ursino, the University square, the baroque Crociferi street, the fish market (not on Sunday), the amphitheatre and many more…


  • If you want to be picked up from the harbor, our staff will be waiting for you with a board with your name to welcome you OUTSIDE the pedestrian exit of the port.
  • Entrance fees won't be included in the rate.
  • Of course we can customize the tour according to your needs and interests focusing on the subjects you like the most and if you are more than 6 people, please just inquire a rate.

Very Good

This is the Way!

Chiara and her driver were prompt and on time. Comfortable Mercedes for our full day trip to Catania & Syracuse. Chiara’s knowledge of history culture agriculture is very deep. Our city stops were well planned and full of experiences that we simply could not have done on a big tour group. Expect about €550 in total but worth it! (source:

A great day touring with Chiara!

We booked Chiara to take us on a private tour to Siracusa. She suggested we add Catania to the day so that we can compare and contrast the two cities. What a great idea - I loved seeing them both. Catania was a wonderful surprise. Chiara took us all over - the main square for the black buildings, through the market, down into the back of a restaurant with a cave and more. We wouldn't have seen much of this at all on our own. Then she drove us down to Siracusa, where we toured the archaeological site and then we headed over to the old town of Ortigia. We had a nice walk through Ortigia, stopping for coffee and ice cream. We went into the churches and got tons of information about their history - and the history of the world as it pertained to each church. Chiara is a wealth of information and we learned a ton from her. In addition, she's friendly and easy to travel around with. I would highly recommend a touring day with her. It was well worth the money and far better than one of those $50 per person big bus tours - Chiara knows what she's doing and puts a lot of effort into making Sicily come alive for visitors. (source:
