The great tragedies of Aeschylus are said to have first been performed here. Walking around this wonderful theater one is filled with awe at that very thought. Wouldn't it be just like the Roman to alter the theater the better to perform gladiatorial games-- says...More

It is much more in the Parco Archeologico della Neapolis than the ruins of the amazing Greek Theater which dates back to 406 BC (I posted a separate review for it) which is certainly a major highlight. There is also the ruins of the Roman...More

Even if you're not that much of a history buff this is a terrific site. The theater, amphitheater, Ear of Dionysus, just wandering. I did go with a guide which probably makes a big difference, but if you do a little prep work and take...More

This is quite a large area and there is quite a lot of walking involved. We were told that the extensive quarry area was originally roofed and one particular rock column gives an idea of the height of the roof. In early October the park...More

Open only for three hours a day over the Christmas holidays. Pathetic for a major tourist attraction. Everything else in the city is open everyday all day

Yes, a lot is closed and it is expensive. But if you enjoy seeing ancient sites I would say the theater alone, which you can visit, makes the entrance fee worth it. True, there isn't a lot else to see, but you can walk around...More

This park is on the northern part of the modern side of Syracuse. There are three main attractions there. First, the Greek Theater. Then next the Latomies, former quarry, where the Ear of Dionysos is located. Finally, the Roman Amphitheater in a park of its...More

This is a great site. The ancient amphitheater and Ear of Dionysis cave were the highlights. Also a Roman Colosseum there was opened (after being closed for months) so we lucked out and got to see that as well with the price of admission.

Hi Kristel, We walked from Ortygia, so I didn't really pay attention to street names and carparks. As you approach the park, you'll see the entrance to the park on one side of the road, and on the other, a large area with... More
