It's not as big as the theatre in Syracuse, it doesn't have breathtaking panoramic views as the theatre in Taormina. And yet, I was more impressed by the Roman Theatre in Catania than by the others. Probably, the fact that I saw this one first...More

Agree with others that this is not well-signed (we actually did walk right by it) and could use some maintenance. But it offers a fascinating look at a Roman theater. Unlike other sites we visited, you could walk all over the site, including the stage...More

There's so much to see but the little off shoots are easily missed. Take care and do see everything it is fascinating and well worth the money to see inside. Hidden from the outside world it's a little gem to get to.

My best advice is to skip this one. They charge 6 € basically for nothing. The antic theatre is nice and all but small and under construction or something (there were a lot of wood panels everywhere). If you have been to places like Rome...More

According to our information this structure is second only in size to the Coliseum in Rome - you really have to want to find it though because it is surrounded by modern buildings and the entrance looks like a normal doorway. We saw it from...More

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
