During summer 2018 site is covered by wooden boards, actually the place is used for some theater or music production. It makes no sense to go there. People from Siracusa are simply crazy to do this.

The Akrai Theater is amazing. It is immersed in silence and evokes ancient atmospheres. It is not great if compared to the splendid Greek Theater of nearby Syracuse but it deserves to be visited

Greek remains and fascinating burial chambers....much more interesting and accessible than Siracusa. Wonderful location in the hills. A photocopied A4 sheet available only in French or Italian, and we were asked to bring it back! Don't miss it.

We were disappointed in this site. We were provided with neither map or information board so we had no idea what we were looking at. Very overgrown in parts

I understood barely 10 words of Fenicie, but it was a performance of an Ancient Greek play in a venue made for it. The summery was enough for me to follow the story. Fantastic.

This small evocative greek theatre is very well preserved and benefits from an enviable position, on the highest gound of Palazzolo: not to be missed.
