Great tour

We really enjoyed out Street food tour and had a lot of fun. Aureliano was a great guide and we felt well cared for. The food was great as well and we were able to get vegetarian options everywhere.

Local gem

If you book this tour ask for Agata. She has a wealth of knowledge of Sicily and has a lot of pride for her city Catania. Try the Anchovies!
