Hmm, honestly there is nothing left. The place is very difficult to find and it is nothing compare to bigger theatre. Very poor and smells not good. I can bet it running as public toilet at the night. Not worth to spend time to try...More

Not quite in the same league as the ancient theatre, but a pleasant spot to visit as it is much quieter and free

An archaeological ruin which would be displayed with great pride and excitement anywhere but Italy where there are so many riches. So it is tucked away and could easily be overlooked. It shows the levels of subsequent building through the ages and lastly the church...More

Well, having been to Syracuse before, this small theater can be even missed, but it seems that even now plays are taking place here.

The theatre itself is OK, but pales in comparison with the Teatro Greco a few hundred metres away. However, check out the shops and restaurants behind the Odeon. Hand made shoes, great little trattoria, and much better prices than just one road down!

This is tucked away behind a church, just up from the Tourist Info centre. Its free and really interesting to look round.

Hidden away behind the Santa Catarina Church, this fairly well preserved small theatre is very easy to miss, worth a short visit. Free to enter.

Located in the centre of Taormina near the Tourist office. It worth a passing glance. You can walk down the site and for those with historical interest it is probably a place you would want to visit. For us 15 minutes was enough

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
