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.

If you love history than this should be on your wish list. The entrance ticket is €10 and for another €5 they can give you an audio guide too. Make sure to watch the documentary before going in to the theatre as it will make...More

I didn't expect the theatre to be as big as it is - it seems so grand for a little town! Fantastic views and lots to explore, worth a visit.

A bit pricey, but otherwise beautiful. Wish there were more active things to read and learn about while there. Bring guidebook perhaps.

Great site. Definitely awe-inspiring. Just came from Kourion in Cyprus. Its amphitheatre is more restored, but this one is in a more authenticated state with videos ground level illustrating the original representation that the site would have been in its day. Wonderful opportunities for photos...More

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.
