We were not expecting this to be as spectacular as it is, you simply cannot miss this attraction while in Siracusa. Be careful to note that Archimedes' tomb is at the end of the Archeological Park trail and could easily be missed, helpful locals pointed it out to us.

One can enjoy this magnificent theatre much more in the afternoon: There are less tourists, the temperature is not so high, and one can enjoy wonderful sunset views...

There are a lot of the ancient ruins still to view and you can easily visualise the plays which took place. Great experience.

Started in the 6th century B.C., this was a spectacular view into the distant past. Well worth a visit!

Incredible to see. Beautiful, but no information. No tours. No signs. Come with your own information to read.

Really enjoyed our visit here! Although you have to battle Syracuse's ever unorganised and impatient traffic system to get here, it is well worth the visit.

A very interesting place with nice views, but absolutely no explanations, panels or information about the place. It gets annoying if you actually want to know what you're visiting
