a must see in one of the main squares in Catania. Very lively, both in the day time and night time and some good coffee shops where you sip coffee or granita looking at the square.

This is a nice area to go alone, with family, or with friends! I love having some coffee in the winter or gelato in the summer and simply walking around this area ha peaceful!

A piazza where everything happens at once. The fish market is closed, the locals meet and sit together, the tourusts take pictures and all weddings go through there and stop with their cars and take pictures with their beautifull dresses.

A must see in Catania in the heart of the square. The architecture and location is worth it. Have a snack and enjoy

It really is a net sculpture. There are many shops, the church, and public entertainment in the area. As I walked around Catania, the piazza was an important landmark which kept me well oriented.

Sat here on the steps below having a rest from our travels. Elephant statue is in the middle of the square and is something totally different, well worth a look. Cafes nearby excellent for watching the world go by.
