It is the heart of the city. It is surrounded by cafes and bars and other traditional buildings. The only setback are the gypsies that beg everyone and ruin the charm of the city but they are found in every major square in europe nowadays. As site not to miss nonetheless.

We've thoroughly explored the top right hand corner of Scily from Siracuse to Messina, and this staggeringly beautiful piazza takes the number one spot. In every corner there are wonders to be seen, overlooked by the lava elephant in the middle. Go there! Catania has many interesting sites but this is the icing on the cake.

Piazza Duomo is such a beatiful square with lots of monuments to visit. There's the elephant monument in the centre of the square, the majestic Duomo, Fontana del Amenano & Sant' Agata Church. So there's a lot to see in this square...................worth a view.

We like the place, in particular the dome and the very special elephant in the centre of the place. It is a must see in Catania.

We love coming here to the different cafes and finding something different in the market. The buildings are beautiful and watching all the diff kinds of people is very fun. The fountains are my absolute favorite part.

It is a rare cathedral style in Italy, as most of them were built centuries ago. At Catania, the old Cathedral were demolished by the 1693 earthquake and the new one was built in Rococo architecture. The new façade of the cathedral and the square are very beautiful. It is a must see in Catania.

Beautiful Piazza, with Elephant statue in the center. Located at the end of Via Etenea which is perfect to stroll up and down. The Duomo is quite stunning and impressive inside. Free entry, some areas are restricted but to be expected. Be aware I think they may close at certain times as they closed just as we left at mid... More

There are so many, many, many Duomos in Italy and. If you have been to the Cathedral of Siena, then you know what I am saying. I spent 8 hours in the Cathedral in Siena, you only need to spend a few minutes in this Church.
