Need a good guide to explain the history. On the day we visited, a group of French visitors spontaneously sang Les Marseilles, which was really special with the natural sound effects.

When we visited the ancient amphitheater, we saw a path going down into a green grove. we went with the path and we found ourselfs in front of a cave system in the green garden. it is a nice place to visit

Interesting geological feature but the Greek Theatre is the star. It's down quite a few steps from the entrance but there is an alternative route for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Visiting the old Greek and Roman site of Syracuse is a must for all visitors to Sicily. We hired Enrica from recommendations on tripadvisor. she was a great choice.

The Orecchio di Dioniso is an incredible testimonial of the past. Do not get scared of the dark, re-live the feeling or being a prisoner of war of 2500 years ago, a slave, doomed fo life!

There are three main sites to visit; the Greek and Roman amphitheatres and these caves where they used to make ropes.
