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.

What a lovely place! The views are to die for! We arrived early in the day to try and beat the heat but we were still seeking the shade. We also hired the audiotour which for us Ancient Rome fanatics was well worth it. On...More

We visited on the first Sunday of the month which has free entry. Nice to wander round the ruins, but the views are amazing so worth going for that alone

Overrated and overpriced. 10 euros to get in. It is nothing special if you have visited other ancient theaters. It is actually one of the ugliest. Visit is 5 Minutes...

We did other things until 5:30pm, when we entered. It closes at 7. We had it nearly to ourselves at the end. Were the last ones out. It’s cooler and the light is superb.
