A wonderfully spacious piazza situated just a block up from Piazza Duomo along Via Etnea. Sit in the shade for a moment and watch the tour groups filter in and out of the square, then continue along Via Etnea for some excellent window shopping. Compared to Piazza Duomo, it is quite empty during the day, probably since there's not much else to do here, anyway.

The Piazza has an imposing symmetry with the University on one side and the Palazzo San Giuliano on the other side. The Piazza sits astride the main shopping street of Via Etnea and leads down into the Piazza Duomo.

The center of Catania. Enjoyable to walk around and 'take in' the atmosphere. Good for 'people watching' as well as enjoying the architecture of the buildings

Near Piazza Duomo, along Via Etnea the main artery of the city, this square from where it derives its name to the presence of the University. Apart from some stately building there is not much to see. Of course from here you can see in the distance the beautiful cathedral of Catania. Pretty crowded and is also an artist-street square .

It is a nice piazza - but in February on a somewhat rainy day it did not seem overly special. Not much action or cafes open.

A spacious piazza framed by lovely old university buildings, it's a pleasure to walk through and is one of the nicest places in Catania. But really not a destination by itself so much as a thoroughfare.

i went to Catania for business and was quite impressed at how attractive the historical center was. Our hotel was near most of the sights and within a reasonable walk we could enjoy the city. Piazza univeristy was one of these. and it is really worth the walk, then continue on the duomo. etc.

It is a great piazza to sit at a café and enjoy your drink or ice-cream, while seeing locals strolling around. It is worth visiting both day and night, as there is a somewhat different feeling depending on the time of the day.
