The ruins of the Temple of Apollo (7th-6th century BC) won't give you the whole picture; you should visit the archaeological museum in Syracuse to find out what the entire structure looked like.

Touristic and with great interest to be seen

At the entrance of Ortigia, the place is very nice to be seen, eventhough one of the most touristic place of Ortigia

small ruin at the edge of town. it is what it is. Nice to see, and its free, i think it could benefit from better night illumination, as they dont make much of it, maybe for preservation reasons though. Nice sight in the town, you cant miss it, as its right adjacent the only junction in the town. Nice

I gave this a four because of what it may have used to look like and the respect i have for that. As of today however there is barely anything there, it is mainly just ruins. Use you imagination for this one.

This Temple is right in the center of town, and is a terrific site to visit. No charge, you simply stroll by in awe. Simply amazing.

Within an hour of arriving in syracuse we were sitting in a lovely cafe having a cold drink gazing over the delightful ruins well cared for compared to other places we've found. As the drinks went down so our imaginations started to run away with us trying to imagine what life would have been like around this temple when it... More

You could walk right by this and not realize that it was the ruins of an ancient temple and not a building site.

The remains are really limited but the fascination comes from thinking of the Heritage of the city, its Greek past and fasts.

Nice ruins that are located just on the entrance of Ortigia, next to the connecting bridge. Amazing place to view.
