Temple of Apollo (Tempio di Apollo), Syracuse

3.4
#6 of 18 in Historic Sites in Syracuse
Ruin Tourist Spot
As the oldest Doric temple in Siciliy, Temple of Apollo (Tempio di Apollo) represents an important Ancient Greek monument. Built at the beginning of the 6th century BCE, the temple once boasted six columns on the short side and 17 on the long side, each standing over 7 m (22 ft) high. After being repurposed many times throughout history, only two of these columns remain. Make your way around the raised walkways and look down into the ruins that now sit in the center of the city. Visit the Museum of Syracuse to view a scale model of the temple and a video allowing you to see what the inside once looked like. Make Temple of Apollo (Tempio di Apollo) a part of your Syracuse vacation plans using our Syracuse itinerary maker.

  • It is the first "place" of interest you meet entering in Ortigia. cute, should be freed from weeds.

  • Honestly, without a guide or a guide book, you will be lost in this place. If you don't happen to make it there, you aren't missing a lot unless you KNOW what you are looking at.  more »
  • Magical place. You can feel the history, right in the Centre of the old town. Recommended visit during the day, although the floodlights don't do sfiguarare. Strongly recommended.

  • Some nice parts of the temple in the park. Unfortunately you can not walk into it. Good view tough. Nice area. Market, bars and shops.
  • Syracuse is well worth a visit, drop past the temple of Apollo for a quick look or grab a bite to eat and a drink at one of the bars nearby
  • Not as great as the Apollo Temple in Didim/Turkey. Which everyone should see (only saying).
  • Nice square in Ortigia with some market on a side.
  • The great Antiquity of the place right in the middle of the city
