This is a very broad plaza with fountain. Great restaurants and shopping just steps away. Not far from the Catania multilevel garage. You must park and then take the elevator to the 7th floor.

As you get here, it's hard to decide what to look out for : the sea, the other coastal cities, Etna or Taormina architecture?
