This is about as good as it gets in Catania. Decent outdoor theatre but it don’t think it has been sympathetic repaired and the patch up / add one stand out very badly and degrade a nice old building.
The entrance to the building is very bad and it is really easy to just walk straight past (as we did 5-6 times in the prior days) with noticing.
It is 6€ admission which is about right - it is certainly not worth more, but in this town it seems to be the main tourist attraction.

It feels haunted, but in a good way. With a little imagination you can see the crowds rushing up the stairs, and the actors entering the stage. The city buildings that were built on top of it and the flooded stage add to the mystery. There is not much to see, but at the same time, the atmosphere here is amazing. If you are into ruins, you are in for a treat.

This spot has a history that goes back to a pre-history sacred spring. Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, and finally modern Sicilians built on top of it. They seem to have run out of money for repairing it but it is worth a visit.

Really cool place in the middle of Catania. From the outside, you can’t tell that there are ancient ruins just behind the wall. You are able to walk basically everywhere through the ruins which is more intimate than the Coliseum experience in Rome.

It is an amasing place in Catania. A beautiful environment, nice view. You have to climb the stairs but it worth because it is wonderful. We would just sit there foe hours to imagine how it was in the ancient times. A must see place in Catania.

This is an extremely impressive site to see within the city of Catania. While you expect to see these types of theaters outdoors, it is totally surprising to enter through a door and then you find the theater. It is surrounded by other buildings in the area which does not fail to astound. As you walk through the various levels, corridors and passageways, it is amazing to contemplate the history and to imagine it in it's heyday.

A wonderfully preserved Greco/Roman theatre tucked away of a main street. There isn't a lot of information displayed to explain the context and sometimes there is clutter from concerts obscuring parts of the structure. Overall though, a must see.

This historical site was a complete surprise.

Although a little old fashioned in some ways, it is also quite unique. Not only do you see the Roman theatre and lots of history about it, but you clearly see where the ruins have been intruded into by more recent, in the scheme of things, buildings.

Plus, you visit one that has been built right into the wall. And can see the outside of the smaller odeon.

Really glad we went.

Beautiful museum and amphitheater. The beauty and charm is the fact that (not like many others ) is located very downtown in the middle of everything and very much surrounded by normal buildings. Very well maintained and pretty organized.

it looks unlike typical roman arena, because around it are located plain houses, built on top of its oval tribune ... what is more, its stage is flooded by green water, which makes this place more fascinating and unique...
