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.

This is a must see when you are in Taormina, Sicily. The views are just majestic. Theatre is still used for performances. The view from inside the amphitheater looking through to Mt Etna s something you could sit at look at all day.

Located close to the city centre. Short walk, not very difficult. The theatre is fairly well preserved. The theatre offers nice views of the city and the ocean.

This was such a moving place and our Road Scholar tour guide Rosa Rizza made us feel like it was alive as it passed through the hands of the conquerors through thousands of years. Amazing place!!

Well worth a visit and at 10 euros each to enter, good value for money. the walk up to the entrance is quite steep and the theatre itself does not cater for visitors with disabilities as far as we could see.

...through the town and up the hill, which is very interesting in itself. Can be very busy with tourists. Excellent views from the top of the ampitheatre - weather permitting.

Wonderful preserved Greek theatre complex with a small museum at the top and wonderful views from several aspects. Its also a fine example of the theatre and in fact is still in use for concerts.

I would get a Taxi . You will love Taormina. You could get a bus but it would stop everywhere. It's only about 15 minutes in a Taxi.
