“The history and beauty of Sicily speak here...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

It is definitely one of the key attractions in Palermo. The middle of it represents the biggest, richly decorated fountain in town, around old medieval noble houses and two must-see churches: San Giovanni and, opposite it, the medieval Sta Catarina.

“Opposites attract?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

The best about Piazza Bellini is not what it is but what it accomodates: the Santa Catarina Church ( all baroque and out there) opposite the older, Saraceaninfluenced three domed La Cataldo.

Practical tip - if you visit La Cataldo first the ticket there will give you discounts to Palazzo dei Normani.

Great for a traditional pizza and "bellini". Good location and reasonably priced.

“Worth a look on your way elsewhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We happened upon this whilst walking past to another destination. It was spectacular and one of the prettiest man-made sights in Palermo. A nice space that seemed worlds apart from the busy, dirty streets nearby.

“Beautiful piazza in heart of Palermo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

This was a lovely little piazza in the center of the city. There was renovation work going on when my girlfriend and I visited, so we didn't get the perfect Piazza Bellini experience. But it's a very beautiful spot and definitely worth visiting.
