The theater and the surrounding views are incredible. The route to the top tier of the theater is accessible and easily navigated with hand rails. This was one of the highlights of our visit to Sicily.

Online quick and easy to book and enter the venue. Highly recommend as it’s so hot, so queuing for tickets not ideal. With a digital ticket we just walked to the front of the Q.

About: Ancient Theater of Taormina

The Ancient Theater of Taormina is an ancient Greco-Roman amphitheater in Taormina, Sicily. Built by the ancient Greeks in around the third century BC, the site was renovated by the Romans around 500 years later.

Carved into the Sicilian hills, the theater is still in use today. The likes of Bob Dylan, Elton John and Sting have all graced its stage, which boasts stellar views of the ocean and surrounding countryside. Not your average music venue!

The Greek Theater of Syracuse has a storied past. Hosting everything from theater performances and religious worship to large events and public trials, this hillside relic was a key landmark in Sicily during Greek and Roman-era history. It was even the venue for gladiatorial battles, with up to 15,000 people able to view the blood sports of the Roman Empire. You'll literally stand where lions and humans faced-off all those centuries ago. This archaeological site is prime for exploring, its whispering remains are full of incredible stories that will excite history lovers and casual visitors alike.

The Colosseum is a massive ancient amphitheater in the center of Rome. Picked apart by scavengers and ravaged by earthquakes and time, the Colosseum still stands as an impressive symbol of life in Ancient Rome. It showcases the power of past emperors and the durability of the Eternal City. This huge, marble and limestone structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators, all there to revel in the various forms of (mostly violent) entertainment, such as hunts, gladiator battles, and executions.

Built between 1609 and 1613, this opulent structure - fountains, gardens, pink marble walls, frescoed ceilings - seems ideally suited to house one of the world's best collections of art. And that was exactly what it was built for. Architect Flaminio Ponzio designed it for the cardinal and art collector Scipione Borghese, who wanted a party villa on the edge of town where he could house his enormous collection of priceless art. In 1901, the collection (and the gallery, and the park that surrounds it) was acquired by the Italian government, and opened to the public. As a museum, Galleria Borghese punches well above its weight with an impressive hit rate of masterpieces. Sculptures by Bernini and Canova, paintings, by Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian... the list goes on.
