Get the red tourist bus to here 5 Euro for the day ticket. Make sure you have some water as it is exposed. Lots to see within the site as well as the theatre.

Having been to Ephesus, this was just as spectacular. Worth visiting as it also includes the Ear of Dionysus and the Roman theatre. A good couple of hours spent here.

We were transported back in time when we saw Oedipus at Colonus performed there recently. Despite portions covered for the play, and cushions to sit on, you still got enough sense of what it was like 2500 years ago. Seeing a Greek tragedy at a...More

Absolutely fabulous site. Well worth the 10 or so euro entrance fee. We paid €5 each for an audio guide - you need to take your own headphones though - and you could use one guide with 2 sets of headphones I think. The Roman...More

This theatre is absolutely huge. We preserved and with a great view overlooking Syracuse. Nearby are caves that were used for keeping prisoners and quarries that were also later used as prisons. One of the best theatres we saw in Sicily and definitely the largest.

We enjoyed touring this site without a guide. Read up about it before going and then no need for a guide. The amphitheater is very well preserved. The grounds are nice to stroll. We took a 10 euro cab there from the Temple of Apollo...More

The theatre and site are amazing wander in the Latomie where Greeks were held captive after their failed attempt to conquer Syracuse. The theatre still stages performances of classics.

Best time to go is 4pm. Cooler. Great for kids. Not too much walking. A cheap attraction. Nice café for a pit stop at the smaller theatre. Good thing to do before heading into Ortigia for dinner/evening atmosphere. The historic site is not very well...More

This is a big one but, unfortunately, much of its architectonic glory has vanished, prey to the later inhabitants of Syracuse who used as an easy quarry for their constructions. A real pity!

If you are an avid walker, it should be possible. Be aware that its generally uphill along busy streets that are less than photogenic. Personally, I think there are better uses for your time. Our hotel was a bit closer, but... More
