Free Walking Tour Catania

Kata-Aitnè, under the Etna. Get to know how it is to live under the Volcano with Free Tour Catania

Free Catania Walking Tour

Please let us introduce two local and licensed guides that started in 2017 the first Free Tour Catania, Sicily. Our inspiration came from our travels, a free tour guide once told us: if there is no free tour in your city, do it yourself! We have accepted the challenge and we have grown offering a variety of tours in our beloved city.

Since we have the memory of our ancestors in our DNA, we love sharing myths, legends and stories. The stranger is sacred and a source of richness and knowledge. Therefore in our walks we are always exchanging experiences and points of view to understand cultures and history and to feel the emotion of discovering ourselves in the other. 

Catania Free Walking Tour is an introduction to the black and white city shaped by Volcano Etna, we show the effects of living under the threat and blessing of Etna, we explain what is behind our Baroque architecture, we teach some Sicilian expressions, attitudes and more... We usually start at 10 am or 4/5 pm (check our calendar on the official website, yellow button), the free tour lasts about 2 hours and booking is mandatory to guarantee guides’ availability.

Our optional paid tours span out of the imaginary ring of the historical center or delve into the Street Art linked to the city Activism or feed your 5 senses with the best Sicilian street food in the local fish market or take you to Syracuse, the greek city of the Tyrants. Our optional tours are upon request and can be tailored.

The constant feature and what we think makes us special is Agata and Daniela: funny, knowledgeable and easygoing local guides, rooted in Catania but also crazy about traveling and broadening their mind. 

We are looking forward to meeting you!

One of the best tours in Europe!!!
Rating: 5 out of 5
Agata makes you fall in love with Catania. She is so knowledgeable and discusses so many interesting and funny facts, stories and myths about this enchanting city. She was very kind to our kids and also patient as we had a pram with us. I would definitely recommend this tour and next time we are back, we hope to see Agata and join another tour of hers again. Thank you!! Eapal
The perfect tour to discover Catania
Rating: 5 out of 5
For me, a free walking tour is the best way to discover the city on a small budget and also to get informations about the culture, people and special places. My Guide, Daniela, answered every question and her english is perfect (clear, and nit to fast). The tour was not to long (2,5h), not to short. We walked not that much because everything so close. I really enjoyed it so I strongly can recommend it. I already did some walking tours in different cities but this was one of the best I had. Grazie Daniela und hoffentlich bis bald ;) Manuel W
A very informative and enjoyable tour!
Rating: 5 out of 5
The tour gave a thorough and very pleasant overview of the history of the city, the significance of its landmarks, and the nature and beauty of the architectural styles. The tour guide was very well prepared and incredibly friendly: she showed some illustrations of the way the city used to look in the past and answered all questions competently. She also shared some of the legends related to the landmarks and gave advice regarding the individual tourists’ itineraries. Definitely a must go-to when in Catania! Betti V

Free tour means that you do not charge any cost?

Free Tours is a global movement of local people who love to show to the visitors the history and beauty of their cities. Our guides struggle to be free from the fixed schemes, free from the traditional guiding style and free from the logic of mass tourism with the must-see or must-say or must-pay. You are free to join, free to leave and free to participate and support the project of the gift economy with donations/tips at the end of the tour, depending on your budget and your liking.
