My name is Antonio and Catania is my native city. I was graduated in classic literature and I speak Italian, English, Greek and a bit of Spanish and Russian. Now I'm working as a school teacher. My parents, my grandparents and so on were also born in Catania. So I'm a really Sicilian guy. My grandfather was a fisherman and this passion for the sea is going through the generations in my family. My mum is a great cook and she taught me how to choose and cook fish right.
I would be glad to share my knowledge with you!

This was a great tour of the fish market. Antonio is very knowledgeable about all of the different kinds of fish and was able to give good examples of how you would prepare them. He also showed of some of the other food stalls in the area and was able to give us some understanding of the different products as well as things unique to Sicily.

Antonio is a very friendly and smiling guy, who really likes what he does and is also able to transfer his passion to his guests. The fish market tour was very interesting, and Antonio could explain about almost every fish we saw. It was a short and very enjoyable experience to start discovering Catania with.

Antonio was a fantastic guide, he had great knowledge of the city and it’s history, and took us to some interesting sights as well as the fish market. Antonio helped us choose and buy the best fish, cheese and vegetables in the market, and shared tips on how to prepare them. He was even kind enough to give us a lift back to our apartment after the tour as he lives near where we were staying. Overall the tour was a great experience and the perfect way to get to know the market and the surrounding area, especially if you want to buy ingredients to cook later. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone visiting Catania who has an interest in its cuisine and history
