This was a must see! It is well preserved and still used for plays. It is the most complete Ancient Greek theater still in existence.

It's an interesting place, easily accessible by bus from the centre of town. The Greek theatre is huge and you can wander around to your heart's content. If you're there in the heat, it's good to note that there are plenty of places to top...More

Amazing to see such a complete ancient theatre. Built into the hillside, it is bit of a climb to the top to get the best views. Also a more ruined amphitheatre on site and do not miss the grotto.

What a fantastic place to visit, but beware you need to be fairly fit. We were here on a warm day, so we had to slow down a bit and pace ourselves. There is a lot of climbing steps to do, but well worth it....More

This is a truly remarkable piece of history and just amazing to be able to see this after all these years being weathered. Just 10€ to go in and children go free. Interesting and a enjoyable visit.

It is amazing that 2500 years ago something like this was built. A Greek amphitheater that held about 9,000 people. An absolute must if you are in Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

This is the worst place we visited during our 2 weeks of vacation. First of all, there was only one cashier at the ticket office, so we had to wait for around 15 min even though there weren’t a lot of people waiting. This was...More

Words cannot do this place justice. It is a very special piece of ancient history and it will fill you with bewilderment at the ingenuity and the incredible ability of the incredible society that designed and built this theatre. The waterfall at the top -...More

This is a massive Greek theater -- 400 BC -- that is still used for live performances. Oh how we wish we had scheduled our trip so we could have taken one in.
