“Beautiful square in the centre of Catania”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We made several visits to this square. There is always plenty going on especially on Sunday when there was a proper Sicilian Cart on show for the benefit of tourists and locals alike

“Really nice”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

You can't miss it, bustling, really good atmosphere.The food in the side streets off Piazza Duomo is obviously that bit cheaper.(equally as good, if not better) but I wouldn't stray too far outside the city walls at this end of Via Etna at night.

“The Heart of the City”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

You will find yourself strolling through this piazza numerous times during your visit. As you walk down Via Etnea, you will enter the piazza with the Duomo on your left and the entrance to the ancient seafood market to your right. There are numerous cafes that encircle the piazza. Order a glass of prosecco wine or the famous Campari with Sicilian Blood orange juice (comes with complimentary appetizers) and rest your feet watching the world go by.

“Beautiful Piazza & Buildings”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The architecture is wonderful, and the black lava building blocks with white trim are very interesting and unique. Don't miss the black elephant statue and fountain with the underground river.
