La pischaria, il mercato del pesce, a Catania

Food tour in Catania

A walk in the baroque heart of Catania, to learn about its history, monuments, beauties but also its many gastronomic specialties

 At the Piscaria, the oldest and most colorful open-air market of Catania, you’ll taste cold cuts and cheeses, like spiced pancetta or pecorino cheese with black pepper, as well as a selection of traditional snacks, like calia, chickpeas cooked in hot sand.

Along our way we won’t miss the famous Sicilian cannolo and other pastries in one of the most appreciated pastry shops in town. Final stop in a cafe for a tasting of Sicilian street food – such as an arancino in its Catanese version, with fried eggplants and basil – or in a trattoria, the perfect place to enjoy a lunch with a nice selection of tasty appetizers (the Italian antipasto): caponata, eggplant parmigiana, zucchini in agrodolce with salted ricotta cheese and mint.
