The view of Mount Etna and the sea beyond is absolutely superb at Taormina's 10,000-seat ancient Greek amphitheater, which was erected in the third century BC and expanded by the Romans.

The Teatro Greco is wonderful. It is very well preserved and the views from it enchanting. the entrance fee is very reasonable at eight euro for adults. Children do not pay.

The Teatro Greco hosts concerts and other performances through the summer, generally starting after dusk, but allowing the audience to appreciate their surroundings in the fading daylight. We attended a concert of Gershwin music played by an unusual combination of a symphony orchestra and a jazz band. The orchestra was a little uncertain at first but improved as the evening... More

What is wrong with some people? We never expected a fully fledged Teatro Greco. When you consider how much it costs to visit a U.K. attraction it was cheap. We loved it, wish we could have seen a show and Brad Pitt was in Town, I think the effort to restore this amazing place is worth every Euro Cent.

By many standards this is an impressive structure, but if your holiday plans revolve around a magnificent ancient site - this isn't it. For €8 euros you'll get a view of a heavily reconstructed (and not always sympathetically done) theatre blocked off by modern theatre equipment. I imagine it would be amazing to see a performance here, Etna provides a... More

This is an interesting and historic theatre. Due to works being undertaken access is restricted in several sections. This is frustrating. The concession for visitors aged 65+ is not valid here.

This attraction costs approximately 8 euros to visit. It is not worth the price of admission in my opinion. If you get to see a show at the theatre then it would be awesome as it appears that the acoustics are great. But to visit this attraction on its own without a show is a waste of time.

Steps to get you up high but to the right is a gentle slope that gets you into the main amphitheatre. Toilets just outside, free.

A lovely Greek Teatro but really from the Roman period on the site of the original Greek Teatro with views of Mt. Etna. i am sorry tht there was no performance the night we were there. A must-see in Sicily and a well know teatro from the 5th century BC

Impressive views, and in context it is amazing that such places have survived through the millennia. But so much more could be done to make the place attractive and the visit worthwhile. As it is, the views of others places like Mount Etna are more impressive than the place itself

Absolutely stunning views of the coast and the surrounding landscape, and the amphitheater itself is the perfect lens to see it through. Sure, it's easy to quibble about the modernization or the entry fee (€8), but for me it was still an amazing site to visit. Don't miss it.
