Site of festivals and school-related events.

Founded in 1434, the University Square of the University of Catania is a popular meeting place and, of course, closely associated with students as the school is the main university in all of Sicily.

Because the square is associated with the historic university, it is the site of many festivals and school-related events. The university is the oldest in Sicily so it draws a large crowd of tourists on a regular basis who can often be seen on the square with their cameras. For great views of the university or just to mingle with the locals and other travelers, be sure to check out this eye-catching square.
