A Baroque square, at the end of the famous Via Etnea, dominated by Catania's Duomo, where many Catanese and foreign residents of all ages ad walks in life accumulate to walk, sit on the steps of the Elephant monument, have coffee, talk and relax, day and night. A lovely environment, beautifully lit, even when it rains lightly!

Nice open piazza with the Catania emblem -- the elephant fountain. Duomo worth the visit inside as well.

the piazza duomo is different from other duomo places in other italian cities but the combination of the duomo and other historical buildings, the large square and the fountain, makes this square quite an impressive combination. i saw it at night only

The Piazza Duomo is grand with limited vehicular traffic and is surrounded by wonderful picturesque structures. Catanians gather here in the evening to mingle and stroll.

Lovely setting, the church is beautiful and the grounds around add to the beauty. The Fontana is right there, the market around the corner, and the bistros have outdoor seating to let you have a coffee and a pastry as you look at the world buzzing around you.

We called into Catania on a cruise, we went on the hop on hop off bus for a tour around Catania and surrounding areas and when we arrived back to the port we decided to see a little bit more of the city.

Plaza Duomo is worth stroll through when exploring Catania on the way to other attractions and shops. Catania is not one of the most attractive or safe places in Sicily so be careful.

It's a nice square, FULL of historical buildings. The only bad thing is that there are still cars around - so watch out!

We travelled all over Sicily and also visited Catania. The Piazza Duomo is OK to visit but not worth to go out of your way if you don´t stay in Catania over the night.
