  • Reported by some, we did not imagine a spectacular site as this, calmly, reading the comprehensive explanations about signs to figure out how it was rediscovered this amazing archeological jewel. Most complete of the Colosseum, remarkably preserved, reused and inhabited, and yet rehabilitated. The ancient source, which still flows, the second theatre, the signs of recolonization and the rediscovery. Not to be missed.

  • Do early because the heat is strong on the steps of this little maintained amphitheatre. We pay the € 6 entrance and then... help yourself no info if it is sketchy on some panels. A maze of Gallery without actually knowing where to go, and then yes it is amazing to find here in the middle of the houses but is not extraordinary either. Watch out for payment only by credit card. No species

  • In Sicily there is know more Greek culture and architecture than in Greece one... selber...sagt We looked at on the amphitheatre, because it was on our way. It's quite nice. But one should expect not too much... When they saw the Colosseum in Rome, which is unimpressive here. As their own attraction, it is ok if it is just in Catania. Very neat all the same, what you can... say yes unfortunately not always of attractions in Italy
