Large Greek theater, part of the archaeology museum. It doesn't take long to look at it, but a small effort to get there.

Large ruins, nice enough gardens included in the ticket, including the Ear of Dionysius (Orecchio di Dionisio). Some scholars claim Archimedes' tomb is here, but there is no proof whatsoever, other than one of the tombs is larger than the others. Parking is opposite side...More

Beautiful spot to stroll around and soak up the history. Parking near for €3.50, short walk to the ticket office. The Greek Theatre is still in use but for me that was mixed blessings, great to see but the plywood seating covers the main event....More

Enjoyed walking around and seeing the ancient Greek theater, remains of the Roman Colosseum and other ruins. All located together within easy walking distance. There is a bar and restaurant on site, which I didn't use. Lovely views down to the sea.

We recommend to visit this place early in the morning. It can be quite busy and warm during July/ August. This park is well organised and the theater, with a spectacular view, is still in business!

Wonderful experience that we highly recommend; very evocative setting and best way to experience the ancient architecture. Not too far from old town to walk if you are fit and leave plenty of time.

The Greek theatre at Syracuse is world famous but in May 2018 it was covered in wood platform seating presumably to provide seats (which were more comfortable than the old stone and presumably to preserve the original stone terraces) for some commercial plays. There was...More

You pay to get into this and it was so disappointing to walk up to see almost the entire structure permanently covered with painted timber chairs. There is no mention made of this when you buy the ticket. I felt very ripped off.

I visited this ancient Theater that is full of history and was surprise at the enormity and details of the site. I was not surprise that many visited this ancient site including biblical characters and Caravaggio. This site also had many unwelcome visitors and left...More

A sense of drama, even before the tragedy began. Although I had hired an English translation, having read the plot in advance, it was unnecessary, and tended to distract. The setting against a deep blue sky , the wonderfully choreographed and costumed chorus, the brilliant...More

If you are an avid walker, it should be possible. Be aware that its generally uphill along busy streets that are less than photogenic. Personally, I think there are better uses for your time. Our hotel was a bit closer, but... More
