Description

Tourists flock to the Ancient Theater of Taormina year on year. Once you see it, you'll know exactly why. Carved into the rock of the Sicilian hills, this relic of Ancient Greece and Rome is wonderfully well preserved.

Having skipped any lines with your smartphone tickets, the ruins are yours to explore. The horseshoe shape of the theater is consistent with Hellenic architecture, but the brickwork suggests the Romans built over the original structure. A double dose of ancient culture awaits!

Opera and theater performances are still staged in this exquisite venue, over 2,000 years since its foundations were laid. Sir Elton John has even graced its stage. (And yes, in case you were wondering, he did play I'm Still Standing.)

The amphitheater boasts stellar views of the Calabrian coast and the Ionian coast of Sicily. You can see Mount Etna on a clear day, a view that hasn't changed in over 2,300 years. Revel in your self-guided tour and transport yourself back to ancient times at this historic jewel of Sicily.
