Visited with my husband during a stay in Taormina. Very magnificent site, did not expect to be as interesting as it was! On top of all they had musical/theatre entertainment on the evening. Definitely worth a visit!

Must see, very nice amphitheater with a spectacular view of the lower parts of Sicily. Impressive to see how big this was in ancient time. To bad the restoration is not always authentic

This is an amazing place to visit and see the views of the bay and Mount Etna. Fab! Also the walk up to it is a pleasure too, with lots of designer/other shops and restaurants, ice cream etc.

Well worth visiting this place if you are in Taormina. The views are breathtaking.... Stunning. We didn't book to see a concert here, but we did have dinner with a lady who went to the opera here and she said it was a fabulous experience.

A beautifully preserved Greek theater. Not a whole lot of signs explaining it except for the small museum in the back. Beautiful views of the water and the surrounding towns and the fortress on the town above Taormina.

I was almost put off going to this attraction because it was another 10 Euros but it was worth it for the views. Obviously don't go there on an overcast day. The ruins themselves are interesting in the way that the ampitheatre lines up with certain geographical points

With construction and partly used for theater the place lost its natural beauty and charm when we visited in June end. Ofcourse you will witness some stunning view of Taormina from the top.
