It's a must on your trip to Sicily

It's not only the Duomo di Catania, the whole city is just wonderful. Full of young people because there is a very large university. For us it's the most beautiful city in Sicily.

Nice duomo to visit. Very big building with baroque characteristics . Not as nice as in other famous baroque cities on the other site of the island ( and Puglia ) but worth a visit when in the neighborhood.

The duomo di catania was one of the highlights of the trip. The artwork inside is stunning and the architecture is beautiful and well kept. Being religious, it was also a beautiful experience in that regard. The only thing I didn't appreciate were phones ringing and people talking loudly and generally not treating the place as a site of worship,... More

The Cathedral is not always open. They close at 12 until 4 pm. Interior is very nice. Free access. Very spacious. Some gypsis sitting at the entrance begging for money.

A striking square, but eating here can be cheaper. Go to Trattoria Giglio Rosso, Via S. Anna 19, some 500 metres away, for excellent food in a courtyard with friendly staff and fair prices.

The Duomo and the square around it are beautiful and spots i'll never forget in Catania. The dumo is beautiful inside, as are almost all maintained buildings of the era. I hope to return someday.

This cathedral is right on the main square in Catania and is free to visit, so if you are in the square it is definitely worth popping in for 15 minutes or so. It's a stunning building from the outside, and while the inside isn't ornate it is still worth a look and it's nice and cool so you can... More

This is one of the most beautiful squares in Sicily, made of lava stones with the big stone Elephant in the middle of it. The is squared is also home of city's town hall, cathedral, museums, fountain with a river passing by an amazing fish market.

This church is so pretty on the outside and looks stunning in the sunshine - great for photos. It's quite plain on the inside though worth popping in - there are some good paintings and the alter is decorated and quite lovely.

the central square of Catania is full of surprises and the Duomo is beautiful. There is so much to see in Catania and so many people just give it a miss and move on to Taormina or Siracusa. So stop a few nights here amd have a good look around. You will like what you see,
