Catania is a melting-pot of culinary traditions and history and famous for the unreachable quality level of its products. It is awash with local vendors selling an array of local delicacies and traditional eats such as arancini (fried and stuffed rice balls), brioches with ice creams and fried "Sfinci" (filled with anchoves or fresh ricotta) to name but a few. The variety of street food on offer is testament to the city and Sicily's diverse history and cultural influences.
Alongside the interesting and unique street food, Catania is also famed for its boisterous and bustling street markets. As you wonder the streets you will likely come across the characteristic markets of "Fera 'o luni" and the huge fish market. Not only is it a great atmosphere to observe the locals but you will also find amazing fresh produce, meats, fish and of course genuine street food.
The best way to experience and appreciate the street food and market culture of Catania is by foot. We propose a walking tour which focuses on exploring the main markets and the old city center. Walking around you can learn about the seasonal produce on offer, the fresh meats and local fish. Along your way expect to taste an array of edible delights such as artichokes, local olive oil and sun dried tomatoes. You could also use this opportunity to pick up some fresh groceries for your stay at the cheapest prices.
