    Right in the Centre of Piazza Stesicoro can be seen the remains of a Roman Amphitheatre vastissimo (105 x 125 m.) with a capacity of 15,000 spectators. To your arena was the second largest of Italy after the Colosseum of Rome. Today the amphitheater is below the level of the square is somewhat hidden by the surrounding Baroque buildings and prça.. It's still an impressive sight.

    Interesting place. Right in the middle of the street, you can see the ruins of the amphitheatre. But excavated only a small part of it. Everything else is hidden under the quarters of the town. Well and correctly! Do not demolish the same good houses, which, incidentally, also represent the historical value. And Roman amphitheatres, you can view the entire lot and elsewhere.

    It was visited by buying a ticket. I didn't have the heart to go down stairs considering the amount of filth and stench. Shameful leave a piece of history, located in the city center, rot as well.

  • Lack of 'touristic' aesthetics, so lack of one star. Not well maintained. But fascinating stuff right in the middle of the city!
  • As usual, neglected, ignored and unknown. However, fine and with a modicum of knowledge and interest and it is very interesting. *update* With the installation of some explanatory panels, this gets another star.
  • Interesting because it is in the middle of a square in Catania so the overall view is worth to see but not one of the nicest examples of roman theater in Italy
  • There's not much left, but it's so nice to find these Roman remains in the middle of the city centre.
  • Good place to see. Free entrance.
