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.

Anyone going to Taormina should visit the Theatre. The views of Etna are just amazing. It's well worth the entrance fee.

Taormina is the most Ttractive city on Sicilia. The theatre is one of two highlights. Especially the views from the upper level are breath talking. To visit you pay 10 euro p.p.

Before visiting Taormina a colleague told me the light in Sicily had to be seen. I wasn't sure how it could be any different than the rest of the world until I visited The Greek Theatre in Taormina at dusk. What a beautiful, magical place.

G7 completely ruining any visit Taormina - and that is before they have arrived. It is worth a visit for the setting but there are other places to see with Greek remains. Also spoiled by school visits as teachers do not exert any discipline over the children. Go early to avoid the tourists!

I would absolutely recommend a tour of the theater when visiting Taormina. I'm sure it is not as spectacular as some of the ruins in other regions but it is definitely worth seeing the view is spectacular and it is an opportunity to see an agent structure. Be prepared to climb some stairs and do a bit of walking.

Great but ruined by work being done for the G7 and the school children milling around. Not as good as some I have seen

Wonderful greek/Roman theatre with unforgettable views over taormina, mount Etna and the sea. Worth visiting early morning or early evening (last entry 7pm).

As part of our stay and walk through the town, we visited the Greek Theatre. It had spectacular views of the surrounding area. I would recommend seeing it on your own and not through a tour.
