I shared some pictures about Piazza Duomo. There are lots of beautiful buildings to see in this piazza. However, I really recommend you are careful walking around Italy. I got my purse stolen :(

We enjoyed our stay in Catania. The city has a gritty charm and authenticity. The people are lovely. The architecture in the plaza was extremely interesting. We also recommend visiting the fish market near the plaza.

The piazza is especially beautiful at night, lit up, shining and always full of people having gelato or just hanging out. It is also near the fish market and an interesting neighborhood of mixed minorities, meaning you can find Pakistani shops, Chinese food and Africans...More

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.
