My wife and I didn't have this high on our list of things to do - in fact it was an afterthought - mistake. We got there late morning with friends and due to time constraints had only a couple of hours - we could...More

You enter this antique theater directly from the street and find yourself in a magical, historical place where the time seems to have stopped. In May the site was calm and very enjoyable.

Such a spectacular setting for a large ancient building well worth a visit, always busy but especially so in the mid morning period.

This place is fantastic.  It's a must see on your trip to Catania. Well worth the six euro entry fee.  Loads of history and if it's a hot day the corridors under the theatre are nice and cool.

Easily the best place to visit in Catania! How this theatre isn't higher on the lists confounds me. Hidden behind a row of totally" normal" house fronts is the most amazing hidden gem. A beautiful and well-preserved Greco-Roman theatre complete with the water-moat for performances...More

You could walk right past the glass doors without knowing the treasures lurking behind. We did and had to retrace our steps to find it but once you do the theater and the Odeon, not to mention the aqueducts, are better than anticipated. Plan for...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.
