Must see!

Amazing to see first hand what most of us read in history books. To get the most out of your visit do your homework or get a guided tour. Give yourself two to walk the whole site

This is a truly a wow factor. The scale and the preservation of the theatre are to marvel at. Sit on the steps and admire how this theatre was used and is still in use today. A must do. .

awful personnel and, most of all, it's not worth its price - you can see everything from the outside and save 13 euros for a dinner :)

From 5th C BC, and then enlarged in 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. The largest Greek theater outside Greece. 15,000 seats. Quarry is on the same grounds. There is also a less well preserved roman arena on an adjoining piece of land. This can be seen from above only. 10 Euros to enter. There is a bit of walking. It... More

Along with caves, a Roman amphitheater and several well marked sites, the Greek theater is a highlight of this trip. The entrance fee of 10 Euros per person is well worth the afternnon exploration we enjoyed.

This is one of the largest ampitheatres in Sicily - (Taormina's is amazing aswell) and during late May and early June there is a fortnight of theatrical rendition of ancient Greek Plays. Seat Cushions are provided and the level of theatrical production is wonderful. Simply not to be missed and definitely to be planned for.

Weather was threatening but local bus to here and enjoyed the walk around the Teatro and quarry garden. Despite limited access to Teatro it seems they are leaving it in current state and not attempting any repairs.

We went on a boiling hot day and walked around the extensive grounds. Very pleasant and interesting without being mind blowing compared to other amphitheatres we have seen. Worth a visit, try and get close to the entrance, we parked way out.

The visit to the theatre was amazing and well worth spending a full morning or afternoon! We went to Sicily in August and although it was very hot we still enjoyed walking around this incredible theatre and other surrounding sites. We parked our car at the parking next to the entrance and it was a reasonable price and the best... More

This greek theater is one of the largest in the world, it has 42 rows of seats. It is still in use for summer time, mostly classical plays. Nice to be there for one performance, maybe next time.
