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.

We visited here on one of the cloudy days. Cost us 20 Euros to get in. It's really impressive to see and would be amazing to see in action. The views are amazing all around with a few great spots for you to get photos.

First, kids under 18 are free, and between 18 and 25 , it's only 5 euros. Adults pay 10. Second, the theater and its setting are magnificent! Dusk time is great! Can't have these views unless you enter. Can enter until 18:30 and can leave until 19:15 or so.

This place is a must see! Having been to Agrigento and Siracusa, it was a nice way to tie up the trip. Taormina did a much better job of up keeping the theatre than Siracusa, all while continuing to use it for concerts and events. Please note that currently it is under construction due to the G7 Summit being held... More

I really wanted to visit the theatre. oh the beauty, the history, the stories it could tell and in such beautiful condition for its age. Would love to have been able to hear a concert there, just not there at the right time.

When we visites (on a Sunday) it was entry free, but would've paid the 10 euro. It's worth to visit especially for the amazing view.

Very well renovated greek theater. Worth spending at least half an hour. Beautiful view on the landscape from top. I think it is the most important place in Taormina.

This ancient amphitheatre has been partly restored to its previous beauty. Work continues and it is being used for performances regularly. The views of Etna in the background and the coastlines on both sides are spectacular. A short walk from the city centre. Well worth a visit,
