Piazza Duomo reviews
The square is very typical for Sicily, all noisy and beautiful, with impressive monuments all around. But none is quite like the black elephant carved in lava. more »
A nice Piazza to the front of the Duomo with cafès and restaurants to two sides. A great place to watch Catanian life pass by from Brides using its features as a backdrop to their wedding pictures... more »
It is probably the nicest open place to go in Catania. However some of the other places to go aren't far behind. I spent over an hour there looking around and eating. The fish market is right beside it behind a fountain. It connects to most of the old city by the main old roads which you can walk mostly without cars. It isn't as big or as nice as the big piazzas in Rome or Venice but it was nice. However there is very few places to sit except for th cafes.
Amazing architecture with a great atmosphere. Fish market was also wonderful to experience even if it was a bit smelly. You must try some of the freshly prepared food from the hole in the wall fish restaurant.
