We attempted to visit the Teatro Massimo Bellini in late June 2015, but unfortunately there was a sign on the door saying 'no guided tours until further notice'. We were disappointed that it was closed, but the outside was stunning and we admired it from the square in front and a nearby cafe.

The theatre is beautiful from the outside and is simply amazing on the inside. You have to join a tour in order to see the insides and it is worth every penny of it (only €5 for an hour tour). The theatre tour is not available on some days, so do check their website before going. Our tour guide speaks... More

The theatre is wonderful outside and inside. It is extremely reach of decorations, fantastic walls outside and unforgetable paints inside, in the roof. When the opera start we understand that also the orchersta of Teatro Massimo Bellini is an excelllence. Congratulation to the people of the city to own this magic reality!

A theatre whose facade and location is unique. It is set in a pedestrian area and its Catanese architecture makes it one of the most imposing. It is, however, in need of a thorough restoration on the outside!

Could not get access inside but the building looked fantastic, spoilt a little by some banner protest from the roof.

But looks beatiful, in the square where the Teatro is, young people gather to play music and enjoy the night. Don't miss it!

This is one of most beautiful corner in Catania. Located few steps from Piazza Duomo and Via Etnea, it's a quite impressive building. We only had a look from the outside but if you got time I really think it worths to spend some to visit it. Guided visits are available. The view even from the outside is something special.... More
