If going without a guide you'll need to prepare yourself with information as little is provided on site. Also wear good footwear as walking is not even and a walking stick would come in handy. Having done those things enjoy your visit.

We had less than a day in Siracusa/Ortigia and wanted to include historic sights within our visit. The Greek Theatre is 2km away from Ortigia. We walked both ways and there is a shuttle bus available too. Yes, it’s a huge theatre and it’s well...More

Interesting with a guide. Tacky array of gifts in the coach park. Toilets in the coach park a disgrace. 50 cents handed to a scruffy individual who, after washing your hands, gives you one sheet from a roll of tissue to dry your hands. Cleanliness...More

Amazing, yes; historic, absolutely, but beware the searing sun. There is no shade inside the outdoor theatre so be prepared. Take your bottle of water but, there are also water taps provided in the shaded area below the amphitheatre.

The audio guide was ok and more satisfactory than we expected from other reviews. The ticket buying was not convenient and the man refused to give change. The theatre is quite complete and an impressive sight.

The amphitheatre is really quite impressive! I believe audio guides are offered but there are no information signs anywhere which is disappointing. It can be a bit tricky (but not impossible) to navigate with a pushchair but well worth a visit. The views from the...More

We were so disappointed to turn up to view this at 5 o'clock and be turned away because we were too late. We overheard other visitors complain that nothing was well signed and that the monuments are shabby and poorly tended

The site is nice to see. But do not use the toilets. They are so disgusting. No paper, no dryer, only excreta and smell. They ask 10 Euro/person. 2000 tourists/day = 20000 Euro/Day and they are not able to clean the toilets !!!!!

One of the largest and best preserved Greek theatres that I have seen in Italy. It is nice that visitors can actually walk among the seats and sit and imagine what it would have been like all those years ago

If you are an avid walker, it should be possible. Be aware that its generally uphill along busy streets that are less than photogenic. Personally, I think there are better uses for your time. Our hotel was a bit closer, but... More
