The Roman Odeon is an ancient theater in Taormina, Italy. It is small in size and was likely used for small-scale vocal and literary performances for the city's elite. This theater was built in 21 BC under the rule of the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus Octavian. It was discovered by accident in the late 1800s when a man was digging in his land. Excavations eventually uncovered the theater and found it to be very similar to the larger Greek-Roman theater in another part of the city.

The theater included a Greek temple, and the marble steps that made up its base have been preserved. The theater itself has also been well preserved over the centuries, and visitors can still see the red clay bricks that form the different sections: stage, orchestra, and audience. It could hold about 200 people. Today it is used for a variety of events, such as the setting for a nativity scene during the Christmas season.
