This is the central place in Catania, all other sides are in walking distance. Itself it is not that fancy, but a nice place with some nice addendum like the elephants.

Whatever you do, avoid the cafe close to the dome. Tourist trap if there ever has been one

Very beautiful central square surrounded by impressive historic buildings, very pittoresk especially after dark as Christmas is nearing and it's nicely lighted up, there's a Christmas market here too at the moment!

We did not have high expectations for Catania but we taken aback by the charm, life and authentic beauty and harmony of the old downtown starting with Piazza Duomo and all along the long pedestrian road leading to Bellini’s Park. A Saturday evening stroll here with all it’s life and atmosphere - it doesn’t get more authentic Sicilian than this.

This is nice to see both at night and day. At day time you can also enter the duomo. It's a shame though with the graffiti all over the city.

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.

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, locals stopping to chat, the evening "passegata" and, in our case, the circus that is "il giro d'Italia" setting up shop for the next days stage

Although we didnt stay for long, the cathedral was a peaceful place to visit and had plenty of seating for those wishing to pray - these were spaced appropriately for Covid.

Piazza Duomo di Catania is the center of Catania. You can find numerous cafes to enjoy your coffee. You will admire the elephant strocture too (symbol of Catania). The main street that starts from Piazza Duomo has the majority of the shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy your stay in Catania!
