Its advertised as the Greek theatro but in fact the ruins ate quite extensive and also include a part rebuilt basilica, a bath house complex and a small museum. Great to wander.

Tindari may not compare with the theatres in Siracusa or Taormina but its remote clifftop location is stunning and worth visiting in late afternoon for panoramic views of north coast and mountain ranges of Sicily.
