    I was very enthusiastic about the theater and the view up to Mount Etna. Tip: go there in the afternoon, then you can experience a beautiful sunset, in the winter months the sun already sets between 4-5 p.m. I had a great tour of the theater with Serena. I was the only one who signed up and yet she took the lead with me. I thought it was great!

    The guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable and very kind. He made us very much appreciate the ancient theater of Taormina. However, I must make a point: at the ticket office they had to contact the guide by phone, who did not know about our booking and therefore went to take a break. They explained to us that reservations made online on the site are not communicated to the structure. The guide showed up a few minutes after being contacted, it was very fast, but I wanted to mention it in order to improve the service

    The entrance has not been tidy, despite having arrived 10 minutes before the activity, there was no alternative line and it took us a few minutes to get through. When we arrived at the guide, at 4:00 p.m., the visit had already begun and we missed the beginning. The guide has shown great knowledge and has managed well although it has seemed very hasty at times. The visit is short and with a pace that seems too fast in my opinion. I think the price is expensive for the explanation and the time. On the other side, the theater is wonderful and the guide has shown us very well the small museum and some essential landscapes. As a recommendation, I would try to make the visit longer.
