This is the only way to get to the Amphitheatre from Corso Umberto. It is lined up with souvenir and other tourist trap shops, so no point spending much time here; just make it to the Amphitheatre as it is worth spending time there.

A very unique and spectacular Greek Theatre indeed, due to the sight of the Mount Etna right in front of the stony steps for the audience. A must visit when in Taormina.

It was really raining the day we headed to the Theater. This little street though was a perfect place to stroll. Lots of little shops , great for gift shopping...best to browse on the return from the Theater.

This is another busy touristy street, and one that's impossible to avoid if you want to visit the theatre. I suggest you hurry past the tat to give yourself more time in the theatre itself.
