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.

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)

I can't understand all the positive reviews written here. Piazza Duomo is just dirty, crowded with immigrants selling all sort of things, very persistent guys.

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.
