Attractions near the NH Bellini
Piazza del Duomo
Any exploration of Catania should start at the city's historic central town square, the Piazza del Duamo. This UNESCO World Heritage piazza sits right at the heart of the charming Sicilian city and is focused on Catania's most iconic monument, the Fontana dell'Elefante; an 18th-Century smiling elephant statue and fountain.
The grand Baroque cathedral sits at one side of the square, with the town hall (Palace of Elephants) on the northern side. Visit the Diocesan Museum of Catania near the cathedral to access the Achilliane Baths, an ancient 5th-Century spa located underneath the square.
Shopping Sicilian style
Catania's street markets are a living testament to classic Sicilian stereotypes, with passionate fishmongers gutting fish in the streets and bossy household matriarchs dramatically hustling for bargains with baskets in hand. The lively fish markets called La Pescheria, located close to the Piazza del Duomo, are the place to head for quality Sicilian theatrics.
Open every weekday morning, witness classic Sicilian culture and check out the abundance of fresh fish on display. The eclectic Kasbah of La Fiera is Catania's other famous street market, selling everything from fake designer goods to local herbs and spices.
