It is very good place about Roman historia and Etna’ historia. You can go to there. You can go with your children.

Visited the amphitheater today with friends. It is very small and not completely excavated due to the buildings in the area. It is free to visit the outside.

I returned to see the Anfiteatro Romano since I remember walking past it years ago when I had been in Catanias. It's worth a short stop. We visited on a Monday when it is closed. Otherwise, one can walk around it.

You can see part of what was a large, ancient, Roman theatre which is now below ground level, which gives you an indication of how big it must have been. Entry is free and there are information boards in English.
