It is definitely one of the key attractions in Palermo. The middle of it represents the biggest, richly decorated fountain in town, around old medieval noble houses and two must-see churches: San Giovanni and, opposite it, the medieval Sta Catarina.

The best about Piazza Bellini is not what it is but what it accomodates: the Santa Catarina Church ( all baroque and out there) opposite the older, Saraceaninfluenced three domed La Cataldo. Practical tip - if you visit La Cataldo first the ticket there will give you discounts to Palazzo dei Normani.

Great for a traditional pizza and "bellini". Good location and reasonably priced.

We happened upon this whilst walking past to another destination. It was spectacular and one of the prettiest man-made sights in Palermo. A nice space that seemed worlds apart from the busy, dirty streets nearby.

This was a lovely little piazza in the center of the city. There was renovation work going on when my girlfriend and I visited, so we didn't get the perfect Piazza Bellini experience. But it's a very beautiful spot and definitely worth visiting.

Liked the story of how scandalous the nude statues were when it was finished.
