  • The park features both Greek and Roman theaters along with other classical structures and a fascinating series of caves along the cliff face. It was well worth an early morning walk and the paths are ...  more »
  • The archaeological site of Neapolis is largely banned visitors and is in a State of neglect. That displeasure!

  • We walked on caves and roads from ~ 800 BC. While there is so much history in this site and humbling to be a part of it, it is not the best kept site in Sicily. Worth a visit if you have time.  more »

  • 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!!

  • 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.
