Lonely Planet review

Taormina's premier attraction is this perfect horseshoe-shaped theatre, suspended between sea and sky, with Mt Etna looming on the southern horizon. Built in the 3rd century BC, it's the most dramatically situated Greek theatre in the world and the second largest in Sicily (after Syracuse). In summer the theatre is used as the venue for international arts and film festivals.

In peak season the site is best explored early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
