A classy square in an otherwise hectic city. A couple of nice cafés to sit and rest and to escape from the sun and people watch. We took the tourist bus from here (not very classy) as we didn't fancy dragging all round this big city. For €5 each it was a good investment and gave us a feel of the place. The via Etna, with all the good shops leads off from the square.

Lovely little square with all the architecture surrounding you. Lots of little cafes to sit in and take in the view.

Catania could be a great town and Piazza Duomo is the demonstration of it. Unfortunately it's one of the few places clean and neat all over the city.
It's a pedestrian square like Via Etnea with the exception of bikes and some buses that crosses there.
Not crowded because it is very large offers a wonderful view on the buildings at the four sides .
Some bars and restaurants with outside tables to enjoy a stop with a granita and brioche or a pistachio ice cream.

Piazza Duomo is somewhat similar to Brussels Grand Place. My first thought anyway. You have the Catania elephant (made of lava stone) fountain in the middle and some restaurants around the center. A great starting point to explore the city of Catania. You will be taking some photoes here;)

We saw very little of the city, but after a good dinner we walked late at night on Via Etnea up to this wonderful and unusual square. By night its beauty is unsurpassed. Great fascination . It took us by surprise . Quiet and silent with valuable lightning. On top the statue of the Elephant.
Awesome.
