The most beautiful Greek theater in Sicily in my opinion. The site on top of a hill so breath taking but it is also very well preserved. The final row of seats have back rests and arm rests too a feature not found in other Greek theaters on the island. Get an extra ticket in the gift shop for a... More

Nothing new. Placed very high. So great view is guaranteed. One more thing is that it is not so ruined..

If you happen to come close to this site you must pay a visit this site. With a ticket of about 8 euros you can visit the site of the teatre and the temple near the entrance. The teatre still have its acustics quality, try to stand and speak where actors were supposed to play. The teatre is some minutes... More

Condition of this site is remarkable. Well worth the visit. Nothing I disliked about this outing. Would recommend taking the bus to the site as the climb can be taxing on a summer day.

The theatre is, like the temple, beautifully located and quite well preserved. From within the theatre you have magnificent panorama views. Just imagine how a theatre show there must have been! On the walk up to or down from the theatre, you also have unique views of the temple and its placing in the landscape, which is a good side-reason... More

For a small additional fee go up the hill on the bus (or walk if you have time) to see this fascinating theatre with breathtaking views back to the Mediterranean.

Stayed nearby and so arrived before crowds. Bus ride up is worthwhile, we walked down. Teatro and other ruins in good condition. You can only go up once, so see everything you wish to. Beautiful expansive views from the hilltop.

very interesting historical site. One just wonders how it must have been thousands of years ago when the theatre was in use. The views are beautiful up here. Do take an umbrella in winter as there is no shelter.

We got the bus here from Trapani and it was a wonderful experience. Despite the low cloud and drizzle we spent several hours walking around and absorbing all the history and imagining how it would have been all those years ago. It's worth spending time wandering around the whole site, not just on the top of the platform looking down.... More
