“Nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Kind of hard to get to by public transport, but once you are there, it's neat. Great views over the hills to the sea, the city, etc. Bring your own food and water, there isn't anything to buy nearby (unless that one restaurant at the corner has opened, it was closed when we were there).

“Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

An easy bus ride from Siracusa to Belvedere as long as you tell the bus driver where you are going. Bus stops in Siracusa can be vague.
Castello Eurialo, although not particularly well kept, is a fascinating set of tunnels and turrets that were used to protect the city of Siracusa.
An interesting visit if you have the time.

“A Greek Castle?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

The current bus service out to this spot is sparse but it is interesting to visit with a surprising amount to see. Take a picnic.

“Took some getting to, but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We used public transport to visit, and the bus took a long winding route, so we saw lots of city development. The castle site is huge, with panoramic views over the city of Syracuse and area. Lots to explore!
