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.

Just about the most stunning view in Sicily. The theatre faces out towards Mt Etna, giving an amazing view over the stage.. Wee worth a visit.

A must see if you are in Taormina. It costs 8 euros to get in but worth it. It will take about a hour to walk around and see everything. Spectacular views! I would have loved to see a concert there... I can only imagine how special that would be.

The amphitheater itself is a bit run down, and not as nice as other amphitheaters on Sicily. We were there on a free-entrance day, so we didn't pay the entrance fee. The very big plus of the amphitheater is the superb view of Mount Etna in the background. This makes the visit worthwhile afterall! You can take very nice pictures... More

This old ruin dates back to 300 BC. The view from here is stunning. The night before our visit it hosted a concert and a full crowd. It could be worth checking for tickets in reasonable time before your arrival.

There are a few Corinthian columns that survive around the stage. Climb up to the top and it's a spectacular view. Look above the stage and behind you see the coastline view south of Taormina, including Giardini Naxos. And move your eyes over to the right (I.e. west) and you see Mt Etna with its continuous puffs of smoke coming... More

Didn't take too long to walk around the amphitheater. Not expensive to visit and worth a look. Used for concerts so mostly an arena for this

The theater is amazing. I personally wouldn't go just to see the theater for €8, but if you can score tickets to a live concert I can only imagine that it would be mind blowing. The back drop of the stage is Taormina Bay, Giardini Naxos, and the city of Taormina and Castelmola to the right. I will probably schedule... More

Definitely worth the visit. Driving myself up the hill was a bit terrifying; I might take a tour bus next time.

Worth seeing for the views and sense of history but lacks information which explains the history of the place. Not much shelter from the sun and a steep climb to the top.

Worth a visit - dramatic location overlooking the sea. And amazing feat to build such a beautiful and vast structure all those years ago. Will definitely go back and see a performance there on our next trip. It must be magical.
