  • Really ugly. The forms outline the imposing structure (beautiful for goodness sake) but otherwise? Everything left abandoned, grass everywhere you can't even access the site. I visit? Grass?. If I had to watch the grass was enough I was in open countryside. (don't pay either). Then the tour guides are also the ' I ' would at least place-philosophies. Absolute degradation. Very very sad. (it should be free). Needs some polishing and redevelopment. Shame.

  • The Roman amphitheatre is worth a visit as the Greek theater, located in the archaeological area of Neapolis, is not maintained well as other facilities, but is truly remarkable! Recommended.

  • Part of the charm of this Amphitheater is its condition in summer. Half the site is closed and what's open is losing the battle against nature. It's been restored but even in that context display signs lie in weeds in the closed portions of the site. This site is, in other words, evocative because it's an incredible excavation which itself seems almost right on the verge of being a modern ruin.
  • Good if you like old things
  • The Ancient Roman gladiators who fought in this great arena so many centuries ago would take bloody vengeance on the current responsible officials of the municipality of Syracuse if they saw the disgraceful conditions of this historical treasure. To begin with, the toilet facilities are dirty and without soap or toilet paper, and when I asked two park custodians (in uniform) about it they simply shrugged and continued to smoke and converse among themselves under the shade of a nearby tree. But the worst thing is that the ruins have been allowed to become overgrown with bushes and vines, blocking the circumferential pathways that would allow one to visit the archeological site. In response, the municipality has simply roped off more than half of the ruins. After paying ten Euro to visit I refused to abide by this negligence and I simply ignored the closures, stepped over the ropes and made my way around the amphitheater. I am glad that I did because I was able to see and experience the ruins more fully. At no point was the pathway dangerous to walk on - park staff had simply decided to stop clearing the overgrown adjoining shrubs and bushes and decided to close off the pathways instead, but the paved path was safe to navigate. What a shameful and lazy lack of civic pride and neglect of duty. The local Mafia bosses should take notice and correct this immediately, because the local officials simply don't care.
  • I am ashamed to see how badly the Italians take care of this place. It is completely covered in grass and bushes.
  • It seems to be a little neglected . Unfortunately access is not allowed because of restoration works .
