Vraiment, le meilleur, plus joli monument que nous avons trouvé en vacances en Sicile. This was the most beautiful monument we visited in Sicily, certainly it had the best views we got in the whole trip.

The ancient Greek Theotre is one of the major attractions of Taormina. It's right in the middle of the city and it's super accessible. It is very well maintained and brings you back in history! With a nice Etna view as a bonus!

Beautiful setting. Easy walk from park. You really get a feel for how it must have been. Photos in travel books are not wrong!

Most of the Greek theatre has been rebuilt in modern materials, which isn't everyone's cup of tea. I think this attraction is very overpriced but most of Taormina is and tourists should be prepared for that. We spent about 25 minutes here but it cost 10€ to enter so it isn't exactly value for money. The vistas are stunning though.

Would loved to have been in town during a concert. It must be amazing. Go early to beat the crowds. The vistas are worth the price of the ticket. It was hot, even in October, so bring a hat. To truly enjoy you have to be able to climb up and around. It is a little pricey but worth the... More

OVERALL: Great views; Ancient to Old Hollywood history; and a unique location. Happy we went. Last day in Sicily, its about to rain again, and we've driven the whole island - not a great frame to see the last on my list. Also, there is the great debate between locals on whether this is a must see or a tourist... More
