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.

Nice place for a walk and also had a lovely view to Mount Etna. We were lucky with a nice sunny weather as well. Ticket 10 EUR was worth even just for the view

Went with group. Views are spectacular. Well preserved and still used. Was great experience! Stair climbing to top can be somewhat difficult but worth it. Can view both Greek and Roman cities built on either side.

Great location with great view to Mount Etna and over the Ionian Sea. Completely reconstructed so it lacks the atmosphere of Segesta.

The 10 euro entry fee per person is probably too high for what is delivered once you get inside. The video presentation at the entry is interesting, but provides very little background on the site itself. The audio tour is an additional cost, which we...More

The ancients had exceptional taste. One can imagine seeing a play here on a warm summer evening with a breathtaking view of Mt. Etna and the Mediterranean. A must see in Taormina.

Nice old theatre with splendid views on Mount Etna and the sea. Go early to avoid the masses. 5 minute walk from Corso Umberto.

This site was absolutely lovely. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided not only historical representation but also information from the local perspective and new knowledge

We arrived at the site and were taken through the open-air auditorium and behind the stage of one of the best preserved Greek Theaters anywhere. The views and history are spectacular from this still-active theatre and historical site.

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.
