We toured the Teatro as part of a day trip to Siracusa and Ortygia. I recommend having a guide to explain things. The ruins are fabulous. However, there are signs referring to the tomb or Archimedes that is apparently a myth so be aware.

Seen one seen them all! If you have been to Verona then you will wonder what the entrance fee is being used for! This is not the best, I suspect if you are watching theatre or opera then it would look good but it's not particularly impressive in daylight.

Amazing views from this site, so easy to get to and well worth a visit. We would see Mt Etna clearly from here whilst it was erupting - just stunning

This is a "do not miss" when in Taormina. If you are staying down by the cost, take the gondola to the old city where the amphitheater is. Costs 6 euro each way. You don't want to drive up there unless you are staying at a hotel there.

remarkable fairly well preserved ruins of a Greek / Roman theater. view of mt. Etna and coastline great ! for the 8 euro admission they should at least include a small pamphlet / guide to tell you a little about what your looking at.

As this is rated Top attraction in Taormina, I expected to see well preserved in original condition roman theater. However, what I saw is again so many modern decors, projectors and scene like in a normal new theater. This really ruins the perception. The fee for this attraction is too high.

Wonderful, atmospheric, and well worth a visit...lots of steps. We went to an open air Opera performance of Le Boheme. I love everything about Sicily...especially Taormina
