Duomo di Catania, Catania

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
The seat of the Archbishops of Catania, Duomo di Catania has been destroyed--by earthquakes and Mount Elba eruptions--and rebuilt several times through the centuries. The church's foundation is built on top of Roman bathhouse remains and what's left of the fortified church walls. Part of the transept, the two towers, and three apses are the only visible parts of the original Norman building. The humility of the original structure has given way to grand architecture and artwork that surrounds the tombs of King Frederick III, King Louis, and other notable Italians. Using our world travel planner, Catania attractions like Duomo di Catania can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Catania at night is waiting to be discovered, less car around, more silence at least in areas not Movida, for those who love the nightlife noisy till late Catania offers pubs, bars, restaurants of various kinds and not least winbar "arrusti and eat" from horse meat, veal and pork.

  • I think for anyone visiting Catania is an obligatory stop on the Cathedral as it is also the villa bellini via etnea!!!

  • After the Milan Cathedral, the duomo di Catania is one of the best in the world. Very clean, square made fascinating by the ancient buildings surrounding the Cathedral itself.
