The main square of the city with all surrounding resutants, churches,statues and fountains. Quite unique is the elephant statue. Place to relax and people watch. Good place to start you visit to the city.

A lot of activities that can be done in this area. Walking around and eating. It's fabulous. You can visit the fish market, as well as the church. There are nice places to eat right by the street.

You also have the surrounding restaurants with their extensive al fresco dining areas, the tourist crowds, the hawkers and beggars. The plaza dates...More

This is the main square in Catania and unfortunately it looks rather old and worn. While the Cathedral is pretty, there were very few nice restaurants like you see in other European/Italian cities. Mostly small shops selling tourist trinkets.

Piazza Duomo is the center of Catania, where you can easily reach anywhere. You can find the historical places and must see cathedrals/churches real close.

Definitely worth the visit. I think the charge was only three euros each. I got a bit dizzy going up the tight spiral staircase but when you come out in the open again, well it's definitely worth the effort. We got the clearest views of...More

Disappointing piazza, a couple of very plain restaurants/cafes to sit in. Full of people selling plastic toys. Preferred the piazza universita with a nice restaurant to sit and watch people go by ( and you can see Mt Etna from here too)

Yes, there is a big parking near the Piazza Duomo, not very expensive.

Yes. It is really easy and close, just exit from the port, turn left and walk following the archs. You'll arrive at "Porta Uzeda" at your right. Cross it and you'll be there.
