Details

If you’ve been to Palermo and have enjoyed our Traditional Street Food Tour there, you’ll be glad to add a unique culinary experience on the east coast of Sicily and also to earn your Catanese foodie's passport!

Many travelers think that the beauty of Catania lies only in its stunning baroque churches and the majestic presence of Mount Etna. Catania is much more than this - but it takes a local friend to reveal its hidden beauty. That’s what we are here for!

The StrEat Catania tour is a 4 hour walking tour through the main squares and markets of the city center giving you the opportunity to sample the best and most authentic street food. Your Itinerary stops at places only the locals know, such as food stalls and old bakeries. The group will have a maximum of ten participants, ensuring that you can interact with your local tour guide.

Streat Catania Tour isn't just about food! Our tour guides provide historical information on the monuments and churches visible along the walk and will share the most intimate secrets of local cuisine and habits.

Most travelers think that there is just “Sicilian food” - and we’ll show you how there are huge differences even just between Palermo and Catania. These two big cities on either side of the island have very different backgrounds - including language, and eating habits. While a brioche with ice-cream is a favorite in Palermo, the Catanesi only have it with granita (smoothly crushed ice). And while horse steak is a no-no in Palermo, Catania butchers are masters of this kind of meat cut!

So while the food changes just as the architecture and sights change, the spirit that motivates our tours is the same: we want to show you our beautiful cities as we know them, keeping you away from tourist traps.

 

EARN YOUR PASSAPORTO DEL MANGIONE CATANESE!

At the meeting point, every participant receives his personal Passaporto del Mangione (the Foodie's Passport!), a special souvenir offered by Streat Catania. After every sample tasting, foodies will be granted the official Streat Catania Tour stamp in their Passport.

 

A fun and delicious way to spend 4 hours in Catania!
