Ancient theatre of Taormina




The Ancient theatre of Taormina is an ancient Greek theatre, in Taormina, southern Italy.  Carved out of the hillside, the theatre seen today was refurbished by the Romans in the 1st century AD. They sacrificed some of the seats and part of the stage to make a circular arena to accommodate gladiator games. (Wikipedia)
