Teatro Romano

Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 266, 95124 Catania CT, Italy

Walk due west from Piazza del Duomo and you’ll find yourself at one of the city’s most impressive ancient sites. This theater complex was originally built by the Greeks but later expanded by the Romans, who added a second smaller theater, the Odeon, on the western side. Over the centuries buildings have gone up all around, making it feel like an ancient oasis tucked into a residential neighborhood.
