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.

Magnificent Greek auditorium- we made the mistake of not booking a concert/opera performance. Next time ! Restaurants in the centre particularly the ones with terraces are good to excellent. The Belmond Meteo hotel is next to the amphitheatre- breathtaking views as are the prices !

The Greek Theatre is 5 minutes walk from the main pedestrian street of Taormina and must be included in every visit to Taormina. I was absolutely stunned by the beauty of this vestige of the Greek presence in Sicily

Italy and Sicily are packed with ruins. This theatre is remarkable not only for the rumors of the Greek and Roman amphitheater, but for the views of Etna and the sea below. It is absolutely stunning. Worth every Euro.

Whilst this is a lovely greek theatre to visit, you are not their long and the cost of 10 euros per person is a little expensive. However you can visit for free on the first Sunday of the month.

We were staying nearby and discovered Kasabian were playing & we got some of the last available tickets! it is an amazing venue and not to be missed. We went early thinking we'd have a drink beforehand but be warned - for rock concerts -...More

Nice view for 10 eur the theatre is in good shape but it is pity that part of them are covered by plastic chairs. 10 eur is costly just to have the view and nothing else

I would get a Taxi . You will love Taormina. You could get a bus but it would stop everywhere. It's only about 15 minutes in a Taxi.
