DOUBLE UP YOUR FOODIE EXPERIENCE WITH STREAT CATANIA TOUR!
The younger brother of Streat Palermo Tour, the Streat Catania Tour – born in July 2015 – has been designed on the successful format of Palermo.
Travelers have finally the option to double up their unique culinary experience on the east coast of Sicily and also earn their Catanese foodie’s passport!
Most of travelers think that the beauty of Catania lies only in its stunning baroque churches and the majestic presence of Mount Etna. Catania is much more than this but only a local friend can reveal strangers its hidden beauty. This is why the Streat brand has been launched!
WHAT’S STREAT CATANIA TOUR?
The StrEat Catania tour is a 4hr walking tour through the main squares and markets of the city center that allows travellers sample the best and most authentic street food. Along the walk participants will stop at places hung out only by real Sicilians, such as food stalls and old bakeries. The group will be constituted with maximum ten participants in order to let people enjoy the walk and interact with their local tour guide. Streat Catania Tour isn’t just food! Our tour guides provide historical information on the monuments and churches visible along the walk (StrEat Palermo winter tour also includes the visit of the Cathedral) and share with travellers the most intimate secrets of local cuisine and habits.
I HAVE ALREADY DONE THE STREAT PALERMO TOUR, SO WHY DOING THE STREAT CATANIA TOUR TOO?
Most travelers think Sicilian food is just one, wrong.
Palermo and Catania have very different backgrounds including language and eating habits too! Do not ever mention a brioches with ice-cream in Catania, Catanesi only have it with granita (slush drink). Do not mention horse steak in Palermo, Palermitani will walk out of you. But if you go to Catania, don’t miss the horse steak!They are masters!
It changes the food, it changes the artistic design of the avenues but what you find the same is the spirit that motivates our brand, which means showing you our beautiful cities with no filters and above all keeping you away from tourist traps.
OBTAIN YOUR CATANESE FOODIE’S PASSPORT!
At the meeting point every participant receives his personal Passaporto del Mangione! [Tr. The Foodie's Passport], a special souvenir offered by Streat Catania. After every sample foodies will be granted with the official Streat Catania Tour stamp on their Passport. The Passaporto del Mangione is a Streat Catania idea. Beware of imitations!
