Roman & Greek theatre in Catania

If you walk westward from Piazza Duomo, you will enter the area of the ancient Catania (Katane). The road rising up to the hill is already an indication that you are on the way to the former Acropolis. The Greek theatre was once located on the southern slope of the former Acropolis. It was rebuilt by the Romans into a Roman theatre system with a connected Odeon. Since the Roman theatre was later partially obscured by baroque buildings, it is difficult to discern from the outside. The entrance is at Via Emanuele 266.

The auditorium of the Roman theatre with its two walkways has a diameter of 100 metres and was probably designed for approximately 7,000 spectators. The rows of seats, steps and the orchestra are made of black lava rock. The small Odeon is directly connected west of the Teatro Romano. The little theatre was also built of lava rock and is slightly higher than the big theatre.
