Chiesa San Benedetto
#1 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
Definitely worth the 4 Euro tour up the tower, with interesting facts about the Church and great views over roof-tops.

Piazza Duomo
#2 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
The Piazza is stunning and has some iconic sites along with locals at all hours enjoying breakfast in the amazing cafes with delicious typical pastries that then turn in to bar type aperitif stops
at the piazza you are the the heart of the city, the fish market is just a stone's throw away but you can also climb the other duomo to the top to have an excellent view of the city and Etna.

So we had a chance to view this wonderful place and honored to be shown around by the baron himself.
Chiesa di San Nicolo All'Arena
#4 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
Awesome views
Antique original wooden lattice-work balconies were used by old and sick monks to be out of view of the congregation below while following church functions.
Chiesa della Badia di Sant'Agata
#5 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
Enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the church and the amazing views of the city from those roof tops!
Another lovely church but the standout is going up to the dome and 360 degree view of the city and views of Etna.
Basilica Catedrale Sant'Agata V.M. Catania
#6 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
An important landmark in Piazza Duomo spilling out the festive atmosphere with the procession with the statue and loads of lighted candles.
A must see if you are in Catania, gorgeous architecture and views.

Palazzo degli Elefanti
#7 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
we sat here most days in view of this great and ancient elephant in the cafe del duomo a very lively place with great places to eat I recommend you spend time in what is essentially the heart of the city
Beautiful sights all around
Piazza Universita
#8 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
Such a beautiful place, espacially in the evening many people are their, their are cute Restaurants with music with a special view to the etna
Mosaic floor being repaired - climb to the first floor to view it.
Fontana dell'Amenano
#9 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
There is a nice little café just beside it, and relaxing outside with a coffee (or a beer), with the fountain to one side and a view over the Piazza and facing the Cathedral is a perfect way to relax.
Ican imagine that water is quite scarce on Sicily so this fountain is quite special architecturaly beautiful and so near to places to sit and enjoy the view
Basilica Collegiata

Parco Archeologico Greco Romano di Catania
#13 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
Apart from all the tunnels, passageways etc, there are lots of excellent views at different points of the theatre as well as the ruins of the 18th century Odeon.
This is an amazingly interesting archeological site difficult to find we assumed the entrance would be in Via Teatro Greco it is in fact on the Via Vittorio Emanuelle II !! Useful information boards in Italian and...

Anfiteatro Romano
#22 of 102 Sights & Landmarks in Catania
The way that this site has been recovered and preserved is amazing especially when you consider when it was done around 1903 and the eruption from Etna that had occurred.
I loved to see how it was built as you view it from street level looking down into it.
