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!

  • Love this place. It is a really cool mix of architecture from different cultures building on each other. First place I saw graffiti on cacti, never knew that was a thing. Views are stunning. Easy walk back to town. Love the walk and historic sites. Great place to shop.

  • Worth the climb up to the top for the views of mount Etna alone. Also has some really interesting 3d video recreations of what the monuments throughout Sicily looked like before they were destroyed. The monument itself is well preserved and worth a look. Whole thing prob takes 30-45 minutes.

  • Loved this place. Good multimedia presentation at the start. Huge amphitheatre and awesome view from the top of the seats.

  • This was my view while sitting in the theater. A beautiful place. So very grateful to have experienced it.

  • It was fantastic. I love the old world, the architect, the history. Love to let my imagination picture it when it was in it's glory
