The amphitheater was covered up for a concert so couldn’t really get the sense of the old original structure. We skipped the ruins section completely because it was so hot. The only thing that was kind of cool was orrechio dionisio, which was a super...More

Visited June 2019 and the whole theatre was covered in wooden boards and scaffolding, very crowded and the amphitheatre is covered in grass and weeds so also completely invisible. Absolute waste of time and money.

We were told to visit here as a worthwhile attraction. As part of the Neapolis site in Siracuse, there was lots to wander around such as the Roman ruins too which was a good job because had the theatre been the only thing, it would...More

Part of an area that includes the Ear of Dyonisius (an enormous cave) and other archaeological remains, the Greek amphitheatre is the largest I have seen. Both are set in attractive gardens. Well worth a visit.

Extremely poor and ruined with modern theater props, no sign explaining things. Feel like I am ripped off.

On approach to the ticket office you need to walk past all the cheap looking tourist shops & down a path to purchase a ticket, the staff there are so unhelpful & disinterested in their job, barley acknowledging you. The entrance to the Complex is...More

I can't understand all the complaints from people....defacing the theater with bleachers? What ever are you talking about? The bleachers are there to protect the ancient steps while we do what humans have ALWAYS done in this spot - present and preform and watch ancient...More

I was shocked to see such a priceless ancient site totally ruined by the perceived need to transform this masterpiece into a modern venue. The addition of wooden seating throughout most of the theatre, along with a "prop" in the form of a pirate ship...More

Do not be tempted to spend your money buying a ticket for the teatro Greco or Romano. This is such a let down of a place to visit. The teatro Greco is covered over in wood so apart from the scale of the place you...More

Surprised to see that this historical area is being transposed into music theater. Next will be Rome. History is now lost, why pay to see this type of change.

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
