A Big Square

Probably the center of Catania. This is where all tourists end up sooner or later. Good views of the Duomo and Mount Etna, some cafes with outdoor seating. Come and take photos.

Right in the heart of catania. Beautiful cathedral and good cafe bars around to enjoy a cold beer or share a nice prosecco with friends or family.

If you are looking for a bit of culture mixed in with shopping then this is a good place to start. As you enter the square you will find wonderful architecture everywhere you look. There is also a market place that sells fresh food and of course then there is the shopping. I would recommend that you put your walking... More

If you go to Catania you can't miss Piazza Duomo. It's located in downtown, close by the "pescheria", a true cultural experience for those who are not use to go to markets. Amazing!

Welcome to Catania. In the city centre, this is where you find the Duomo and the main square, with the famous elephant statue and lots of local shops and restaurants and bars. A must in Catania.

Lies where Via Etnea and Via Vittorio Emanuele cross. The square boasts many large baroque buildings. There is a well known fountain built in 1736 in the center. The duomo di Catania is on one side of the piazza. In one direction you can see Mount Etna. As Italian piazzas go this one is not great, and hence, the rating... More

This is the obvious place to start sightseeing in Catania. Visit and climb the dome of Chiesa della Badia di Sant'Agata, see the Elephant statue symbol of Catania, visit the duomo, see the Fontana dell'Amenano, go behind the fountain to the fish and produce market, There is a little train ride which will give you an overview of the city....
