Taking the shuttlebus uphill is highly recommended – walking down the perfect option. Yes, just another theatre, but with most of its seats in tact – even those for the VIPs – and a fantastic view it comes in as my favorite in Sicily. In the meagre ruins up there we found the foundations of a mosque for the Muslim... More

Both the Temple and the Theatre are very well preserved, the Temple is close to the entrance of the site, whereas the Theatre is a bit of a climb ... During warmer weather, since there is no shade, it could be prudent to rather take the bus from the base of the complex, up to the theatre, rather than walk.... More

The most beautiful Greek theater in Sicily in my opinion. The site on top of a hill so breath taking but it is also very well preserved. The final row of seats have back rests and arm rests too a feature not found in other Greek theaters on the island. Get an extra ticket in the gift shop for a... More

Nothing new. Placed very high. So great view is guaranteed. One more thing is that it is not so ruined..

If you happen to come close to this site you must pay a visit this site. With a ticket of about 8 euros you can visit the site of the teatre and the temple near the entrance. The teatre still have its acustics quality, try to stand and speak where actors were supposed to play. The teatre is some minutes... More

Condition of this site is remarkable. Well worth the visit. Nothing I disliked about this outing. Would recommend taking the bus to the site as the climb can be taxing on a summer day.

The theatre is, like the temple, beautifully located and quite well preserved. From within the theatre you have magnificent panorama views. Just imagine how a theatre show there must have been! On the walk up to or down from the theatre, you also have unique views of the temple and its placing in the landscape, which is a good side-reason... More

For a small additional fee go up the hill on the bus (or walk if you have time) to see this fascinating theatre with breathtaking views back to the Mediterranean.
