This is a great site. The ancient amphitheater and Ear of Dionysis cave were the highlights. Also a Roman Colosseum there was opened (after being closed for months) so we lucked out and got to see that as well with the price of admission.

Allow lots of time to explore, but bring a map as signage is not great. The Greek theater is the best part. The walk through the latomie (quarries) was beautiful but demanding.

Well, in Sicily anyway. Makes sense though if we think about it. Siracuse has been a real, functioning city for over 2500 years. So the last 1500 have been downhill...Its worn out, tired, but still there ! And someone's taking money ( and not caring if you have any idea which way to walk or need a useful guide )... More

Quite a disappointment, the Ticket Booth is across a main road, down a gauntlet of souvenir shops across a field to a building where you pay your 10 euros pp CASH only. Then trek back, I'm guessing a quarter of a mile, to the entry. The amphitheater carved into the hillside is worth a visit but no signage. The Roman... More

The Greek theatre is splendid and there are interesting caves, one with a waterfall, above it. You had to buy your tickets for the attraction some distance away and to get them had to pass through a complex of cheap souvenir sellers - very annoying and the whole park badly signposted with negligible seating.

Visitors to Siracusa (Syracuse) will inevitably be steered towards the Archeological Park, one of the town's main attractions and easily accessible from the town centre. If this is the only one you are going to see in Sicily, then you will probably be amazed. To be fair the Greek theatre, one of the best preserved in Europe, is amazing, but... More

If for nothing else, visit this site for the fabulous Greek amphitheatre. The whole site is very interesting but there is a distinct lack of information as you go round.

Park entry for 10 Euros, paid street parking available. Lots to see around this large site. The impressive Greek Theatre is much larger and more impressive than the one at Taormina. The Roman Amphitheatre is still closed for renovation. We spent around 2 hours wandering around.

The site was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel. Due to the excessive heat and humidity we decided to go early. We walked even though We had a rental car. We got combo tickets for the Parco and the Archiological museum. The Parco was very interesting with Greek and Roman remains. The Greek theater was a highlight. The... More

What a place! Steeped in history this place is a must see if you are going to Syracusa. One can walk there, catch a bus or take a taxi but do go. It is incredible
