A great place to visit while in Catania. Hang out in the elephant square nearby, grab an espresso, and enjoy the people-watching!

Sicilian Baroque, more particularly Catanese Baroque, is exemplified here. Some Norman bits, tomb of Bellini. The church in the side street adjacent is worth a look as well. On the main square.

Love the architecture. Really loved walking through it. Don't forget to check out the Roman baths beneath the church. Facing the church, the entrance is to he very right of the building 10euros to get in (a little pricey) but still interesting non the less and very few people know about it.

In the middle of piazza duomo, duomo di catania is very interesting building specially by sculptures and architectures. You must visit that nice cathedral when in catania.

Fabulous views from the top of this, up a very narrow stairway, for three euros. Inside was quiet and contemplative.

I didn't go inside the Duomo but just stayed around in Piazza Duomo to watch the families in the evening. Catania has a very different feel to Palermo- much less 'menacing' and tense - it felt like a family city. However, it's probably not worth making a special trip here, although I enjoyed the opera theatre - Teatro Bellini.

A huge Cathedral forming the heart of the city. Also popular on a Sunday morning service that all the pews were full and the tourists stood in large numbers at the entrance lis ending to the sermon from a priest so far away it was hard to guess his age. Not decorated to excess but awe inspiring by its size... More

What a gorgeous setting for the surround views of the city, buildings, etna and sunset. The duomo itself inside is also gorgeous. Not big but lovely. Pay 3 euros to climb up to the top. Windy narrow stairs that keep turning. Once you get to the top which is not the top, keep going as there is another small narrow... More
