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.

Through this main Arche, with the right weather you can see the volcano. The theatre is still being used today and is a very popular venue.

The theatre is obviously a shadow of its original structure but still very impressive nonetheless. The views are spectacular and it's well worth a visit.

We actually stumbled upon this place by following very well dressed people on a Saturday evening! We found the Taormina book festival, there was a large crowd, we walked in (free) sat down and watched a full orchestra and an opera singer, it got dark,...More

The theater was probably most disappointing site in Taormina. Once again there is a modern seats and facilities for concerts and plays. The view from the top of the theater to the surrounding area is beautiful.

Yes, walking is fine. It's all paved and there are some steps up to the theatre. It is an flight upward incline to the theatre. The town itself is a lovely place to wander around with shops and restaurants.
Hi, Irishblondie2010. What would you like to know about this attraction? Is Taormina worth travelling to from Messina where the ship will come in please? Loo roll? Thanks Margaret
