“People watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

During our week stay in Catania we visited or passed through the Piazza Duomo many times. It was never crowded but plenty to see and the Cathedral itself is well worth a visit. We would sit at the Caffe del Duomo on the opposite side of the square and watch Sicilian life pass by whilst enjoying a drink which was not expensive. We particularly enjoyed our visits to the fish market which is directly behind the fountain off the square - just stand on the footpath at the top of the steps leading down to the stalls, so much to see/smell/hear. Then wander through the side streets to see the rest of the market where there are people selling cheese, meat, fruit, veg, herbs. A real delight.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The centre of town. Beautiful cobble stone square with 2 fountains and the Cathedral. Several restaurants with commanding views.
WE were there Sat. evening and to add to our pleasure there were 4 wedding couples having their wedding photo shoots in the square.
