It is near the Duomo, so you just can't miss it. It is worth the visit. Just enter, sit down and relax. It's a pity we didn't know we could climb in the dome.

There are beautiful views from the top of this church, which is across the street from the Catania Duomo. They charge €3 to walk up the approximately 107 stairs.

This church is located across the street from the Cathedral of Sant Agata. It is very beautiful in its own right although not as elaborate as the cathedral

A lovely church. The steps to the terrace are well maintained and there is room to pass people in the opposite direction. The last set of circular stairs are narrow, but not too long. A wonderful view of Etna. Well worth the climb B.

The church has an interesting interior and is full of light but the really interesting part (if you are ready to invest 3 euro) awaits at its roof from which you can see the whole old town and have a great view of the Etna....More

This Cathedral offers you the great vies over Catania and over Mount Etna. The entrance fee isn't high and you can see the beauty of Etna from it.

Before visiting Catania I checked the main attractions, but somehow I missed this one. Nevertheless, when I was there I saw people on the top, so I also decided to visit it. It was cheap (3 EUR), and had an awesome view over the city,...More

It's not an exhausting walk up the stairs to the wonderful rooftop view across the city (I'm 61 and coped with ease). Once you are up there, the views are really splendid and taking photos is no problem. Our visit in October meant it wasn't...More

A must-do if you're in Catania. Compared to many towers in Italy, this one is an easy climb and the reward is great. Certainly a good way to spend 3 euro per person and would be good do do with kids.

Fantastic views can be had from the rooftop. We got lucky by happening to be there at noon. All of the nearby church bells rang out.
