Walking Tours: ‘Catania’ – In Sicily, Italy (Video)

La passeggiata, or slow walk, takes place each evening here in Italy but it is most popular on Sunday nights. This slow evening walk begins on Via Etnea next to the Villa Bellini and continues down to the Piazza Duomo. The walk was filmed on June 13th, 2020 starting at 7:56 pm. For the best viewing experience, be sure to listen using headphones.

Catania is an ancient port city on Sicily’s east coast. It sits at the foot of Mt. Etna, an active volcano with trails leading up to the summit. The city’s wide central square, Piazza del Duomo, features the whimsical Fontana dell’Elefante statue and richly decorated Catania Cathedral. In the southwest corner of the square, La Pescheria weekday fish market is a rowdy spectacle surrounded by seafood restaurants.
