One can see parts of it from outside. It is worth visiting if you’re not going to one of the other ancient sites on the island, like Segesta or Taormina. Since we went to Taormina, Agrigento, and Selinunte and had seen similar type sites in...More

Surrounded by older buildings including Bellini's birthplace built on top of part of the Roman Theatre. Typical Roman amphitheatre style but some of the passage ways behind are exceedingly tall. Acoustics good. Disappointed that the concerts don't start till September.

Their web site site says that the re-opening has been delayed to March 28 because of weather, and they are normally closed on Mondays. This was from a translated page from the authority that runs it.
