“Lovely Italian pedestrianised square”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We had many coffees during daytime and most evenings went back and sipped Cointreau or brandy while lapping up the sights and sounds. On Friday & Saturday evenings it seems that central Catania comes alive with family groups and students meeting up.
Wonderful and relaxing.

“Beautiful, Day or Night”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This plaza deserves a visit during the day and at night. Make sure you get a chance to walk through the cathedral of Saint Agatha during the day. At night come again to see the churches and cathedrals are perfectly lit and make for great pics. The little side streets off this main area also offer really good local foods like Arancino for cheap and cute little boutiques as well.

“The best part of the city”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Big square, main meeting point, worthy for the big Duomo and the gate to the fishmarket. There are some cafes and many fish restaurants around.

“Wonderful Baroque”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Beautiful piazza with wonderful baroque buildings as well as cafes. We visited a couple of days before Sant'Agata day which made the piazza even more lively.
