nice place where you can see Duomo as well as interesting elephant sculpture and the city hall of Catania. The place becomes packed during the evenings. Nearby restaurants are good with acceptable prices.

Impossible to stand admiring the square without being pestered by touts trying to promote the land train. Only two cafes on the square itself, so failed to find a table more than once.

Yes. It is really easy and close, just exit from the port, turn left and walk following the archs. You'll arrive at "Porta Uzeda" at your right. Cross it and you'll be there.
