We drove from Taormina to Syracuse to visit the Roman Amphitheater and Greek Theatre in September 2017. While worth a visit, the Greek theatres at Taormina and Segesta are far more worthy of a visit if you have limited time. The four star review is...More

The large Greek theater and the nearby Roman era theater make this a great park for seeing ancient ruins. There are also Christian catacombs.

This is a great place to visit and part of a larger archaeological park. The audio guide is well worth the money as it was very helpful

The theatre is in a marvellous setting overlooking Syracuse bay. There is much to see in it, and in the adjoining architectural area. It is extensive and well preserved and maintained
