The walk at the top was closed, so it was difficult to get a view of the entire theatre. Even so, the size of the theatre was very impressive (it's supposed to be one of the largest in the Greek world). Not the best theatre for atmosphere as the views aren't that great.

We arrived at 15:35. They had just stopped selling tickets. This was November. The supposed reason was that it closes at 16:30. We went the next day and saw the whole complex easily in 50 minutes.

Although the archeological park is not the best organised, the Greek theater and the Roman theatre are worth visiting . Well,preserved and you,are able to walk round it and get a feel of how it was originally . We walked from Ortiga, and found it only took about 20 minutes, even though it looked quite far on the local map.

We organised a private tour to see this amazing site. Takes about 2 hours to really explore the Greek theatre (amazing and so well preserved) and the Roman Ampitheatre. Our guide was Eva Paola Greco (00393387558537), fabulous for english speakers. Such a depth of knowledge and she brought the place to life.

We were truly hyped to visit the Theatre at Syracusa, having researched it and the entire site prior to our visit and, sadly, we were underwhelmed, if not outright disappointed! The whole of the park looked and felt exhausted whether from the traffic of a long season or the need of a serious, 21st century make-over! The curation/presentation is disjointed... More
