An elephant carved from black volcanic rock in 1736--the symbol of Catania itself--sits in a fountain in Piazza Duomo. The square is the historic heart of the city, where you can admire Baroque structures from the 17th century. Look for the Cathedral of Saint Agatha and the town hall, among others. Take some time to people-watch at one of the cafes on the square. To visit Piazza Duomo and other attractions in Catania, use our Catania tourist route planner.

  • We have risked our public bus in the city! Gieng of all tip top! Is the Catania sale Street via Etnea, leads directly to Piazza Duomo. Beautiful place, with volcanic rock and fountain, and of course the elephant. Unfortunately, many street vendors who want to be rid of their crap!
