Adjacent to Duomo and the nearby open air market, this is the centre of activity, with access to city tour buses. The market is a really interesting and frenetic experience, among great food sales, especially of fish and meat.

Very nice place but even nicer to discover it at night when all the little lights are on and when the locals get together. The atmosphere is magic !

A lovely spacious square, with some good cafes for people watching - especially enjoyed the gathering of older men each evening at the elephant to put the world to rights.

We used to walk there from Via Etnea everyday. It's a very nice square which leads to other places such as Via Pleibescito where you can eat delicious horse meat!

It is nice, but nothing spectacular that you wouldn't see elsewhere. Consider a trip to Siracusa to see an amazing Duomo.
