We liked the Square of which this was one area. Disappointed we were unable to go inside so cannot honestly compare it except for exterior which was really nice.

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

Quite a beautiful piazza that looks great at night. It is one of the bits of Catania that looks more cared for and is a good meeting point. You are surrounded by wonderful architecture and you definitely feel like saying 'wow' when you first enter. After touring other towns in Sicily though, we felt that this piazza could be so... More

Wonderful piazza with an absolutely gorgeous cathedral. Many restaurants and bars in the vicinity. Never felt threatened, safe. Amazing lava streets and buildings. See the elephant!

Catania could be a great town and Piazza Duomo is the demonstration of it. Unfortunately it's one of the few places clean and neat all over the city. It's a pedestrian square like Via Etnea with the exception of bikes and some buses that crosses there. Not crowded because it is very large offers a wonderful view on the buildings... More
