    Much more characteristic of the market and downtown. There are also shops to street food for lunch. Not to be missed!

    Fish market in seaside town is definitely one of the iconic places. And for lovers of seafood-simply holy place! Only here no and calamari, and shrimp, and mussels, etc etc But those who serve to indifferent (about me) long here linger not worth it-and dirt underfoot, and unpleasant odours, etc etc but you have to give credit to the servants after the market 12:00 when the market finishes its work begins cleaning and after two hours-no dirt Maybe just a little odor remains, but the overall evening did not even think that in the morning there was a lively market.

    This place is indeed for lovers of fish and seafood. The fish are very fresh, probably caught the same morning. Another interesting detail is the atmosphere in the market, the way sellers advertise, s...  more »

  • "Historical fish market" is an important step for those who want to visit the city and enjoy the features, still poorly modified by modernity. Folk, full of old practices, a ' piscaria is a little bit apparently forgotten by time, but positioned at 100 meters from the main town square, the Duomo square with the Town Hall and the Cathedral. It can be accessed from both the Amenano Fountain (also called "water linzolu") both by the arches of the Navy. You find lots of good fish, fresh and well priced. In the surroundings there are many good pubs/restaurants whose menus are full of fish. It's a stage ultra recommended for photo-video amateurs who want to capture images and glimpses of reality.

  • A fish market as it should be loud, busy and authentic. Mostly fresh catch, but also frozen. In ancient vaults at home, in addition to the forecourt which leads directly to the main square of Catania, the Piazza Dell ' Duomo, passing by the Fontana dell' Amenano fountain... Also it is possible (mostly) fresh sea food in the restaurants on the edge of the market, to get not always reasonable prices. Avoid the restaurants recommended in the guidebooks: without regular updates they are mutated long tourist traps ;)
