The ruins of the Temple of Apollo (7th-6th century BC) won't give you the whole picture; you should visit the archaeological museum in Syracuse to find out what the entire structure looked like.

There is not a great deal left of Apollo's temple in Ortagia, but it is a part of the old town which is definitely worth a visit. If you are looking for Greek ruins, add the old amphitheatre just north west of the town to...More

I'm glad to have seen it, but I would not go out of my way to visit it again. At least it is kept within a well-groomed open space, unlike many of the overgrown sites on Sicily.

It is amazing to find a ruin in the middle of a city that is vibrant and full of shoppers and sightseers.

The Temple of Apollo is a local landmark near the bridge that is the entrance to Ortigia. It is extremely old and interesting, but there is not that much to see.
