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

Teatro Bellini itself is a glorious homage to a period of symphonic and opera greatness. Dressed in its Barogue architecture, overstated roccoco design the hall is a marvel of sound and beauty. I was fortunate to have heard the local Bellini orchestra perform a Brahms concert and being a long time classics fanatic I was so very pleased with the... More

We were completely amazed when , the manager in charge hearing and seeing our disappointment offered us a couple of tickets as his guests !... More

Would probably have been good if we were allowed access but for some reason we were not allowed in. We were extremely disappointed as this was something that looked really impressive in the guide books.
