Each year, the ancient ruins of Taormina's Greek Theatre come alive with concerts and plays, offering exciting and unique experiences for holidaymakers throughout the summer months.

Built in the 3rd century BC and standing as Sicily's second-largest Greek Theatre, a visit to Taormina's horseshoe-shaped ancient theatre needs no theatrics to make a lasting impression on tourists. Its position on the hillside overlooking the coastline and glistening sea is further enhanced by the magnificent Mount Etna looming in the distance. 

If this wasn't already impressive enough, each summer, a number of plays, events and concerts are held within the theatre walls, providing a new lease of life to the Greek ruins, and this year is no exception. If you're planning a holiday to Sicily for this summer, or are counting down the days to your holiday, here's just some of what you can enjoy and when in 2018 at Teatro Greco Taormina...
