Wanted to go here to see Opera but couldn’t get to see one so visited the building. It is beautiful and well worth a visit . The square in front has cafes and bars. The building is historic and impressive.

Modest in size, but impressive in its exterior detail. I didn't enter but I think the plaza in front of the theatre is one of Catania's best. Small, with a fountain, it has a few good restaurants right nearby and is busy at night.
