Really lovely vibe with music at night, loads of restaurants all around and a view to die for. Also if you have a chance and the Opera is on just up from the Piazza do go for the experience.

Great view of Etna for photography. Painters and musicians fill the square day and night and there are a good number of bars and restaurants along the sides of the piazza. A great place to meet. Only a few benches however.

Hi I am not sure about your fitness levels or other matters but when in doubt catch a taxi rather than risk some event which could interfere with your holiday such as a stumble and hurt a toe etc
