The theatre is on the site of an original Greek building and completely re-modelled by the Romans a few hundred years later. Still in use today with Mount Etna as a backdrop. Unique !

Wow! This was a spectacular site. I would highly recommend going to see this. We saw several people with bottles of wine sitting inside the theater having a glass of wine enjoying the view. This would be a great place to to see a performance!

Came here in the rain and it stopped to let us see the theater. Has been upgraded to have concerts. Use care because of the slippery steps and walking around from bottom to top is not easy.

A well preserved Theatre. Worth the 10 Euro entry. Visit early in the morning to avoid the crowds especially if there are cruise ships around. The theatre provides great views to Mount Etna and surrounds. We entered off the Via Bagnoli Croce and climbed up...More
