Built around third century BC, Ancient Teatro Greco of Taormina is the second largest theatre in Sicily and is a must visit if you plan to visit in summer – this ancient Theatre plays host to various music and opera festivals!

Whether the theatre is built by Greeks or Romans is a debate that has been on for a long time now. If looked closely, one would find the evidence of Greek origin in well-cut bricks Taormina stone and Greek inscriptions in the theatre whereas evidence of Roman origin lies in the fact these are large theatres as the Greek theatres were quite smaller in size!

  • Four stars for the views! The theatre itself is somewhere in between a ruin and a very interesting venue for epic music. Basically a nice place but they are asking for ten euro entrance fee which I think is a bit too much. Be careful on your way up to the gates as there are some dodgy people around. Still, not much else to do in Taormina so if you are there, go and see the theatre.

  • Excellent ancient site worth a visit. Plenty to explore amongst the impressive architecture. Being high up on the headland there are great views of Taormina and the surrounding area.

  • I found this an amazing place to walk around, beautiful theatre with even more amazing view! I just visited it but apparently they also do shows still in the theatre which must be really nice to see as well! When I went it was only 5 euro to visit which was more then worth it but normally it's 10.

  • Very nice Amphitheatre with spectacular views towards Etna. It looks like built in Roman style, with mostly bricks and some stone slabs. There is a tiny museum up in the far corner, with one mosaic and stone slabs with Greek writing on them. Come early, in summer there can be horribly long cues. Kids free, adults €10.

  • Is a beautiful place, mainly due the amazing panoramic views. The ruins of the old theater had been lightly accommodated to be able to held me spectacles, which indeed happen. When I was there, I could saw workers setting up a stage for that night. All being said, 10€ seemed a little bit expensive in comparison to what I'm used to pay for similar ruins.
