They should be ashamed! You pay 10 euro a person to NOT see the Greek theater, NOT see the Roman theater, NOT see all the grottos. F-ing B*llsh#t, if you ask me. I was fuming at the time and the only thing (one) that kept me from not giving them some new ruins and grottos was my girlfriend who persuaded... More

A few weeks have passed since I visited the park and I still recall the feeling of wonder as I entered the gates and strolled down the path. You feel that you're literally walking into history. Follow the signs and make sure you view all the attractions. Unfortunately the Roman theatre was closed for restoration. Spare at least 4 hours... More

The park is essentially shut. The main attraction, the Greek Theatre, is covered in grey wooden boards so the old stones cannot be seen, and other than the ear of Dionisio the rest of the park is shut. None of this is told to you before you have to pay €10 per head for "access". Really not worth bothering with... More

This is a very large area encompassing a number of different and interesting historical areas, ruins and monuments.(It really helps if you have a good guide book) There are some plates on various points of interest but the information is scanty Just the old Greek area takes a while to get around - if this is of interest to you...

Again, this is a "need a tour guide" stop. Totally amazing when you understand the history. We visited her twice and found it just as interesting the second time.

As noted in other reviews, this 'Zone' contains several items separately reviewed on Trip Advisor: in particular the Greek Theatre, Ear of Dionysius and the Latomia del Paradiso. The Greek Theatre is very memorable and you can get around most of it, and for that reason it is still worth visiting this site. It is in fact a large site,... More

You can only really visit the Greek side - the Roman side is visible through a fence on the left as you come to the entrance. We were there for about an hour. The setting in the park is nice. Follow the signs to buy your ticket before going towards the park (over by the vendors). Enjoyed the Greek amphitheater... More

The park is huge, actually is has several points of interest, so it might as well take an entire day to visit, but it is an important part of the city and its history. The Greek Theatre even today hosts various performances, the Roman Amphitheatre is only visitable from the outside, but looks very interesting, and the various other temples'... More

Went to the park to see the sights. Worth a visit for the history but not the best in Sicily. Had to pay to park the car on the local road. Toilets are a little walk out of the park.
