  • The site brings together, Greek and Roman theaters, and the lotomies (former quarries), including the famous ear of Dionysus. Entry costs € 4 per person. Attention to the agents that take place near the site with their orange or yellow waistcoat to make official. They extort €4 for parking. There are official car parks close at the rate of € 2 day.

  • The place for its historical importance deserves anything treatment. Dirt, grass taller than us everywhere ... they charge £ 10 per person to keep the site on bad condizioni...in some areas is also denied access ... is really a mortal sin. Else instead for the castle in Ortigia, 2 € per pax place nice and well kept.

  • In this site we highlight the Greek roots of Syracuse. Striking the ear of Dionysus nice Greek Theatre hurt the Roman amphitheatre what little remained covered by the grass

  • First of november - and without warning on their site they're closed. Not very tourist friendly. Judging from the number of disappointed people they will be getting more reviews like this one.
  • There are so many things to see in it!! Is awesome! We enjoy it a lot. Is a bit tricky to find the rut inside but you can deal with it. The orecchio di Dionisio is amazing!! And the Greek theatre as well. If you go on the top of it, you might see the ocean, great view!!
  • Absolutely worth a visit. The ticket price is fair since there are more than one attractions to see in the area!
  • Download the Syracuse app and scan the barcodes. It will show you 360 degree models of what the sites looked like. Otherwise it is interesting, but some areas are inexplicably closed like half of the path around the Roman amphitheatre, the front of the Greek one, some parts of the quarry,...
  • It's amazing to see the antique theaters but there is no much witten in information available there. If you have a mobile phone with internet connection is possible to read something using the QR code on the app they have.
