We arrived in Taormina for one night only and wanted to pay the amphitheatre a visit. Sadly there was a concert going on - but we brought tickets and went instead! €30 per ticket (for the concert, I don't know about day visits sorry). The amphitheatre over looks the backdrop coast line below Taormina. The theatre itself is in wonderful... More

It is great that it is close to the town centre, and walkable.It is worth going for the 360' views alone. Would have loved the opportunity to see some sort of music concert here - Spandau Ballet must have been fantastic!

It's a very nice historical site, especially if you're into such things as ancient history combined with amazing views of mount Etna. There's not much to do unless it's a special event, but overall a very interesting place to visit.

Very cool theatre in Taormina. It was a hot day for us, but we climbed around on the steps to get an idea of what it was like to be alive during the time the site was in it's heyday.

The Greek Theatre is one of the main attractions in Taormina. The passageway to the theatre is filled with touristy shops. You pay an entrance fee to enter the place. But you need to pay a seperate fee to enter areas with special views, and that's a bummer. The views from the top are pretty though, making it worth a... More

Expensive for what it is .. It's ok but don't go out of your way. If you have been to other similar places this one is not going to compare to be honest.

This is a special place where ancient Greeks first performed 600 yearsBc and still the theatre is being used. Large amphitheater with spectacular views over the sea. Interesting quarry next door full of citrus and other trees including fragrant cypress trees a little oasis away from the heat. It also has a fascinating cave with brilliant acoustics if you fancy...

A must-see in Taormina. The views from the theatre are amazing. The entrance fee was fairly expensive, could have been a couple of euros cheaper for what's on offer as there's just the theatre ruins to see, no exhibition or guided tour or anything. But worth seeing for the history and the unique setting looking out towards Mt Etna.
