Half day

Tour description

With this half day tour, Dream Island will make you discover the beautiful city of Catania in all its beauties! An incredible journey to discover the treasures of Catania. It starts from Piazza Duomo with the “u Liotru” Elephant Fountain in the center, by Vaccarini (1735-36). The pieces that make up the fountain have different origins and ages: the elephant, the symbol of the city, is by an unknown author, someone attributes it to the legendary Daedalus; the obelisk is Egyptian and comes from the temple of Isis of Siene. It consists of a granite column surmounted by an extremely important obelisk. The splendid architectural scenery of the eighteenth-century square – including all the buildings around and the famous fish market of Catania – are evidence of local art and history. The tomb of Vincenzo Bellini, a Catania composer, is kept in the Cathedral. Continue to the Ursino Castle, whose construction dates back to the period of Federico II. You will then reach the Via dei Crociferi to admire the Catania Baroque. We continue on the Quattro Canti area of Catania and on Villa Bellini area. Finally, free time for shopping on the most important street of Catania, the Via Etnea.
