What people say

"The Ancient Theater of Taormina is a remarkable cultural landmark in Sicily, built by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC and expanded by the Romans. Today, it stands as one of the most impressive examples of ancient architecture in Italy. With its breathtaking location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and Mount Etna, the theater offers a stunning sight for visitors. Renowned for its unparalleled acoustics, performers on the stage can be heard clearly by those seated in the farthest row. The theater continues to host concerts, performances, and cultural events throughout the year. Second in size only to the one in Syracuse, it is by far the most evocative of all of Sicily. You can visit during the day and be enchanted not only by the ancient stones, but also by one of the most spectacular panoramas in all of Sicily that embraces the entire Gulf of Naxos up to the top of Mount Etna. But if you have the opportunity, don't miss the magic of an evening show, with the lights of the bay sparkling in the distance. Unforgettable, believe me! "

"The Teatro Antico di Taormina, a Greek amphitheater in Sicily, boasts a backdrop of Mount Etna's smoking silhouette and sweeping coastal vistas. When I visited, a classical orchestra was rehearsing for an evening performance—perfect timing for experiencing such an iconic site at sunset, as I always recommend. 🌄 It's a blend of ancient history, natural beauty, and cultural vibrancy that makes Taormina unforgettable."
