This theatre is small but still full of history. Dont come close to the Greek theatre but still worth a short visit.

I stumbled across this one late afternoon and had it all to myself (well, there was a cat there too), which was lovely. It’s open from 9am to an hour before sunset, and it’s well worth a look. The sign next to the gate was...More

The theatre, built in the year 21 BC during the rule of the first Roman emperor Octavian, is much smaller than the famous Greek Theatre, but is nevertheless an interesting sight. Originally, it was covered theatre with a capacity of two hundred visitors and divided...More

This looked and felt like a poor man's version of the more famous Greek Theatre. I would advise everyone to find it a spen a few minutes here and to read the information displayed.

Plenty of these scattered all over Italia, I suggest you just glance at it as you walk past towards something more interesting.

..but I don't think it's much better during the day... It's off the spine of Taormina, corso Umberto primo and we found it only because one night, coming back from dinner, we wanted to avoid corso Umberto and found it. Needs highlighting.

This Roman Odeon is only slightly off the beaten track of the Corso Umberto, behind St Catherine's Church. There is no entrance fee and certainly worth a visit. Sadly it is not too well kept. Apparently built in 21BC it deserves better.
