The entrance fee was 8 Euros. There is no walking tour or brochure supplied. You walk around on your own. There are a few plaques with info to read. I would have appreciated a more informative visit considering the price. The site, however is wonderful and really nice to see. The view of Mt. Etna from the stage is magnificent.

Stunning 3rd century Greek Theatre. Amazing views of Mount Etna. Go early to avoid tour group crowds. Very hot when we visited so take a sunhat.

Taormina is, let’s say, a kind of postcard town you can visit in 2 hours. Even in September is hard to find a parking, because you cannot enter to the town without a special resident or hotel reservation card. Once you are there, use the cable car to go up the hill, 3 euros/persons and count 5 euros for 3... More

We attended the "Il Volo" concert at night and seeing this awesome amphitheater is indescribable. The columns were uplighted and it was magical. We also visited during the day and taking in the vista with Mt. Etna in the background was quite the experience. Don't miss the tour if your'e in Taormina!

Definitely worth the eight euros to get in. Make sure to take a camera as the views are out of this world.

The Greek theater is a must see as the views from there of two coasts are spectacular, and the theater itself very lovely.

If you can get tix to a symphony or an opera, it is an absolute must in this ancient Greek teatro. The music resonates throughout and the view out onto the Bay is magnificent

On a hot day take a hat, umbrella, sunscreen, water. It's all uphill going but the views, even on a hazy day, are well worth the effort. There will be a zillion people there, so go early in the day. The acoustics in the amphitheater are amazing - dare you to burst into song! The original Greek building has been... More

They had set up seats on top of the ruins for a show and ruined the whole place with this ugly setup. We paid 8€ per person to get in to find out that there was nothing left to see, so we left the place right away.
