Owner description: 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.

It is obvious you have to visit this fantastic theater in Taormina. And it is absolutely worth it. The views is gorgeous and you can look around to all sides. Watching a performance here must be an experience!

A wonderful place, great views, plenty of photo opportunities and so big that it doesn't seem crowded. I'd imagine it's lovely to watch a performance there.

Well worth the visit just to see the views of Mt Etna between the columns of this amazing structure. Go in morning when sun is hitting Etna for best definition. Far exceeds the Greek theater in Siracusa although I am told the acoustics are not as good but we did not go to attend any performances.

Depending upon your past travels you will find this structure impressive or somewhat repetitive of your past experiences. It is representative of the classic Greek structure and style, with nice views from the highest tiers.

What an amazing place. If you sit in the top seats and look up - you have a perfectly framed view of Mt Etna and the Bay of Naxos. Look down and you could be watching a Greek Tragedy or a Roman Execution. It was a highlight of our trip to Sicily and we highly recommend it.
