Great site but read a guide or on the web first

This isn't as big as Siracuse or other places by any means but it is worth spending some time on. The only problem is the layout is confusing, the guide leaflet doesn't give much information and the English translation on the walk signs around he complex are an appalling rendition of the Italian to the point of being obstructive in...

We were amazed to see that in the 19th century a beautiful house was built on top of the amphitheatre. The explanations and the video in the house are very interesting.

Almost better than the Colosseum, as the crowds were far less and you could get closer to the buildings while exploring the walkways and the main arena.

Amazing to walk through this almost intact amphitheater. Entrance is 6 euro which to my opinion is cheap. Children are free of charge. Amazing to see how complex this building was. The submerged river runs through this complex. A must see!

I really enjoyed this and do set aside 60 - 90 minutes because there are a couple of attractions here. The theater is impressive and the access allows great freedom to get to the to the very top (the stairs to each level are quite steep). Then I found there is a museum of a home owned by a wealthy...

We had a limited amount of time to explore this stadium, but it was well worth it. The area where you walk over the gladiator section is something to see.

You go in, pay Eu6 then meander through, in and on top of the old building. If you enjoy strolling through looking at the architecture wondering what it was like when in operation, this a a good place to see. Plus it is at the centre so not far from Plaza del Duomo. From the theatre walk East to the... More

This amphitheater is definitely worth a visit. The history of the place is very interesting and the level of craftsmanship that went into building the scene and the surrounding buildings is amazing. It can be a little difficult to find. I liked it better than the amphitheater in Taormina.

Not something you expect in the middle of a street, but this theatre is definitely worth visiting, if just for its location. Also the water adds an extra element, and it is not too crowded (at least not when we were there), which made it a great place to stop and sit and relax.
