New Walking Tour Videos: ‘Catania, Sicily Fish Market’

This walk was filmed on June 13th, 2020. It is part of a much longer 3 hour walk around Catania but I thought this clip of the fish market deserved its own video.

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.
