We were not planning to visit Parco Archeologico, but we had sufficient time and decided to visit, and I am so pleased we did. This is a real must, as the amphitheatre and theatre are really impressive and atmospheric. Allow a couple of hours tops.

Probably the most contrasting trip I have ever made , The Greek and adjoining Amphitheatre with nearby Grottoes are wonderful, but, the staffing was very poor, tickets bought from a stall inconveniently situated by a lady with no welcome at all, our ticket was eventually taken by an unshaven sausage roll eating gentleman , no welcome again, I would just...

The Greek amphitheater is in the Archaelogical Park. The amphitheater is amazing and in a beautiful setting. It alone makes the trip to the archaeological park worthwhile. Once in the park, you can also see and enter the Ear of Dionysius. However, the Grotta dei Cordari and the roman theatre are closed to the public.Tickets are available across the street... More

This is a very large Greek Theater and definitely worth a visit. You can climb everywhere and also visit the quarry nearby. In the area there is also a Roman Theater but it was closed when we visited.

The natural rocks created the setting for this near complete theatre. I would love to come back in May or June to see a performance in this space. The size of the auditorium is pretty extraordinary, as are the burial tombs at the back of the theatre.

To visit here on a sunny day is to immerse yourself in history. Fantastic! Take the bus and allow lots of time for exploring this and the quarry areas.

Well worth the effort. Local cheap electric bus will get your here but not a great walk. The site and the museum are well worth it but the open air site is the by far the best attractions and well worth the entrance fee. Nice cafe at the entrance

The Greek Theatre in the Parco Archeologico (Archaeological Park) in Siracusa is truly amazing. It is a ruin in a beautiful setting that still, on occasion, hosts performances. Compare this to a modern performance space and you will see that the Greeks set the standard for things to come.

The entire complex was really cool (the Ear of Dionysius was part of it) the problem was a lot of the areas were closed. I guess for construction. I would definitely recommend going.
