great place to visit, the views from the Greek Theater have Mt. Etna as a background view and it is quite the spectacular sight. Also the theater is quite interesting in its own right and very easy to access from main street in Taormina

Pretty impressive and the view was stunning. Thought 8 Euros was just a bit too much to ask. Also an American lady fell and cut herself badly so watch out the uneven terrain

These Romans knew their stuff. A 2500 seat amphitheatre with the columns surrounding the stage outlining Mount Etna with it's plume of smoke billowing in the air. Wild poppies growing between the terraces of seats. I would love to hear an opera here.

But be careful. The steps are many and steep. Uneven footing and it can be slippery. My wife fell and twisted her ankle :-( The view is outstanding. From the ticket purchase desk, the first ramp takes you to the Western side which is good for photos if you are there in the afternoon. Further down from that entry point... More

Probably the highlight of Taormina. A hugely impressive sight and with wonderful views too. Must be a great experience to go to the opera there in the summer.
