The elegant centre of Catania, rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693. Dominated by the ornate cathedral, the quiirky elephaant fountain and (weather permitting) the ever-present view of Etna brooding over the city northwards along the Via Etnea

Went here during a recent cruise visit. Well worth having a look at this beautiful church. It is set in a lovely square.

Wonderful duomo, space, waterfall, statues, great places to eat and drink. Sicily at its best. Awesome experience.

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.
