The plaza around the University is a gathering place for locals and tourists alike. A very imposing structure worth checking out.

Another Catania surprise, very close to piazza del Duomo. You will stroll through in your walk along via Etnea, the spine of the city. The main seat of the University is here and suddenly will make to want to have been a student here..
