One of the landmarks of Catania is the Roman Amphitheater. It's in the heart of town, so chances are you may end up there simply walking around. The area is pretty - visiting is a must.

Cool Roman ruins located along Via Etnea. If ruins are your thing, pay a visit. If not, stop by anyway for a photo with the beautiful church in the background.

Purtroppo rimane visibile sono una piccola parte dell'anfiteatro romano di Catania. Si trova nell'attuale piazza Stesicoro, e venne costruito attorno al II secolo, in una collina che all'epoca era periferica alla città e costituiva una necropoli. Fa parte del Parco archeologico greco-romano di Catania.
