The Cathedral has a stunning facade. Interior is not as elaborate as the exterior. The Piazza is large and has or interesting building. Also there is a very good resturant located on the street that runs down the left side of the cathedral..

Piazza Duomo is the main piazza in Catania. There you can find the heart of the city. Also in the middle of the piazza, there is the symbol of the city: the Elephant. The stunning Duomo and very old and nice buildings.

Visited the piazza today with friends. It is very large. Only a few restaurants in the square. Has a nice elephant statue that nobody knows the meaning behind the statue.

Piazza Duomo has a wonderful fountain in the center, historical buildings, Churches, shops, restaurants, and bars. It is a wonderful place to sit, relax, and people watch.

This is a UNESCO site and you can understand why. So many impressive buildings to view. Great atmosphere both day and night.

Good place to hang out and sit and watch the world go by. Nice cafes and lively old building surround the square. Need to watch out for occasional buses and cars which are allowed to enter the square.

No, there no charges to go in the Square.. The best street to walk in, from the Square, is Via Etna. That's where the best shops and restaurants are.

Yes, there is a big parking near the Piazza Duomo, not very expensive.

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.
