Absolutely loved this place. The amphitheatre itself has much more going for it than the one at Taormina and the way it has been built on through the centuries is amazing. The Renaissance house is a little gem to visit too!

This theater is like a mini version of the Colosseum in Rome. Great place to visit with lots of history

Firstly my views may be biased as an architect and with a conservation background. Also, we visited on the first sunday of a month (when it is free entrance). I would not have been disappointed even if I had paid the 6 euros entrance. As...More

Surrounded by buildings, interesting to see how houses were built on the site. Plenty of information as you go around. As well as Roman amphitheatre there is the Greek Odeion building.

I was not prepared for the extent of the site in the heart of Catania. For anyone with an interest in Catania's ancient past this is a must.

Entry fees very reasonable and half price discount for under 25s too. Really interesting place to walk around and unusual being right between so many buildings makes it feel all the more authentic and untouched. We spent quite a lot of time here just sitting...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.
