We paid a lot of money, £160 for two for what was supposed to be the songs from "West Side Story". A joke. A xylophone orchestra. Two half-hour sessions with a 15 minute intermission. What a load of garbage!

Great location to explore. We were lucky to go on a really clear day so had fabulous views of Etna and the surrounding areas from very angle. The amphitheatre itself is quite breath taking and we thoroughly enjoyed spending a morning exploring it.

This ancient venue from the time of the Greeks and the Romans is still used today. One can just imagine the tragedies and comedies that have been staged over the centuries. The view from the seating area with Mt. Etna looming behind the stage is indeed gorgeous. This is well worth a stop.

Absolutely worth a visit if you are in the area. Beautiful theater and the view of Taormina is very nice. It was not as hot/warm as expected :-)

There is a reason why there are so many pictures of this place: it is absolutely stunning, overlooking the sea in a quaint, if rather full of tourists, town. There is no excuse to miss this place if you are visiting the town, every step is awesome.
