Excellent views of Mount Etna and the cost. Very impressive setting and still in working use - not great toilets though!

Love the sheer size and historical value of the place. Take a casual walk up and around the back of the teatro...you'll have some wonderful views looking down on the bay.

An ancient amphitheatre still used today for performances with magical views over the island and Mount Etna. If you visit Taormina, you must go to see a performance here. We saw an Opera and it was something special!

We visited the amphitheatre and found if very interested. We have visited the one in Rome so quite similar. The views over looking the sea are beautiful.

For a small fee you can enter and wander around the ruins of the ancient Greek Theatre and this is well worth doing. The ruins have evocative views of mt. Etna behind its stunning tall pillars situated behind the stage. The theatre is still in use for productions so some modern equipment is present, but this does not take away... More

I have seen ruins in numerous countries much better preserved but none with a better view. It is worth the small fee to wander around it and catch the views. We happened to catch it on a Sunday that admission was free. Even better!

Amazing view! History and landscape together in one place. Not too many tourists which makes the visit even more pleasant. We parked a few minutes down the theatre and walked the way up. loved the experience!

I'd never seen a Greek ampitheatre so close to a Roman ampitheatre. I found the juxaposition very interesting. We also visit the Ear of Dionysius (Orecchio di Dionisio) during the same visit. The area is well-maintained. We were lucky enough to visit all three gratis. This may have been due to it being the first Sunday of the month.

The Greek Amphitheater Teatro Greco in Taormina is an amazing tourist attraction. Great views of Giardini Naxos. Would love to attend a concert here one evening.
