Not a very big site but it was only €3 to get in. Interesting little place. It’s a little smelly but not too bad and worth a visit if you are in the area.

Located under the main cathedral, the entrance to the baths is on the right.
Only a small part of the baths remain, and only traces remain of the stucco decorations.

Look for the signs to the right as you pass through the gate in front of the cathedral. We visited on a combined ticket with the Museo Diocesano which is located next door.

Good descriptive signage and safe, sturdy walkways.

These underground thermal structures date from the 4th and 5th centuries. Only a portion is accessible under the Cathedral. Access is through a corridor with a barrel vault that passes through the foundation of the Cathedral on the right side.

The first Cathedral of Catania was built on this site in 1088 and a Benedictine monastery – now the building that houses the Museo Diocesano – was built next to it.

Right next to the Duomo you can explore the underground world. Catania is basically built in layers after the eruptions, the Therme are so well preserved!

The Achilliane baths are just right of the main entrance into Catanias cathedral.
There are signs that point you to them, but you might miss them.
The tickets were sold right there on the spot, cost 3€/person and alow you to visit the ancient baths,only discivered in 18.ct.
The baths are UNDER the cathedral, with good explanations on what you are looking at.
All in all a quick trip into the underground to marvel at all the skill and artistry of the ancients - you don't feel so smart all of a sudden.

It's been a surprise to see the signs straight away insider the cathedral fence all the way to right side.
The structure is a typical Roman thermal baths with an underground river and several arches and atriums were the ancient Roman enjoyed the beneficial power of volcanic waters.
Do not expect a Great dialogue from the duty guys luckily there are signs and descriptions to see
Anyway must seen the 3 euros tickets it worth it.

The entrance to this little hidden treasure is tucked away at one end near the entrance to the Duomo. It can easily be missed. Getting tickets is required but is a bit of a hassle as you have to go down several shops to get them and then return. It is also only open at odd times. Worth the effort however. The Romans sure knew how to take care of themselves.

For any understanding of the history of Catania you must understand the fresh water supply from the rivers that run under the city. This bath is a perfect insight into the phenomenon. Not to be overlooked is the wonderful cool temperature!!. While not large it is well presented and fun to visit. I had recently visited the Jewish Baths in Siracusa and it was great to see both in close time.

I am almost always fascinated by Greek and Roman archaeological sites. This one was a little underwhelming. It consists of a primary room with arches which has been carefully restored and includes water conduits with flowing water. The "guide" who accompanied my on my "private" (only one in my party) tour tried hard but spoke little English and was therefore unable to add much to my experience there. Fortunately, access was three Euros (senior rate), so it was an acceptable value.

Visited this terme on a hot summerday. The positive thing of this terme is that it's nice and cool, but that's about it.. The terme is quite small and has not that much to offer.. The price paid for the ticket was in our eyes too much..
Within less than 5 minutes we were done with our visit
