What a wonderful theatre created all those years ago. A bit messy following recent productions but it's not hard to imagine what it must have been like seeing a Greek tragedy 2000 years ago.

Although there is evidence of set-up for concerts (wooden staircases/ seating), still impressive and more so knowing that is still in use as is the one in Taormina. Knowing about the practicalities of the architecture helps (a guide is of help).

It looks like an ordinary greek theatre but I liked the one in Rhodes more. I didn't have very much time to spend.

Greek theater was during the restoration when we visited it , they were putting some wood to cover the rocks. Not so original at the end. The panoramic view was impressive and in my opinion the palazzo Acreide is more better to see than this.

We had a good guide take us round to explain the site which has more than just the Greek Theatre itself. The theatre is well preserved with much to see and the guide could tell us the history behind the place.

If you are an avid walker, it should be possible. Be aware that its generally uphill along busy streets that are less than photogenic. Personally, I think there are better uses for your time. Our hotel was a bit closer, but... More
