Well worth a visit. In great condition. Great views over the bay with Mt. Etna in the background. A must see.

What a position! Mount Etna is awe-inspiring every time you catch a glimpse of it, brooding there like Mount Fuji in Japan, and it is framed perfectly by the theatre. The theatre itself is in good condition and you get a real sense of atmosphere there - I'd love to see a play in it!

This theatre is not at all th most impressive in Sicily as such. Views are very nice but not at all impressive. In fact, the whole town of Taormina was quite a disappointment. If you are there I think visiting the Greek theatre is a must, but don't change your schedule just for it

Wonderful to see such an ancient monument and explore the heritage of the area. There are lots of steps to climb but worth the effort! Try to visit at the end of the day when it is cooler.

A visit to this amphitheatre is a must! Its beauty and views cannot be appreciated from outside. There are some steep climbs up steps so not for the less mobile but if this is not a problem to you then you cannot afford to lose the opportunity to visit one of Taormina's best attractions.

We went to see opera Tosca when we were on holidays and it was great but wished we would get for cost of €2 seats as the benches were very hard to sit on for two hours

We did the day tour and did not go at night. We were impressed with the setting along with the view overlooking the city. We would highly suggest enjoying both the performance and the total experience of the night performance.

I had wanted to visit the Greek amphitheatre for years but was very disappointed when I eventually got there. Little information available and limited views due to concerts was a real let down. IF you want a fantastic amphitheatre go to the one in Catania!

Went early morning to this ancient theatre, so missed the heat and the crowds. Good value at 8 euros. Fantastic views.
