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.

The Temple of Apollo is a local landmark near the bridge that is the entrance to Ortigia. It is extremely old and interesting, but there is not that much to see.

It's not an organised, curated, managed exhibit, just archaeological remains on view amongst contemporary surroundings. There's no explanation or information so you just walk by, really. Interesting to see, but not hugely compelling, it begs a few of the usual questions like "how the hell...More

As a lover of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome this was very disappointing. Compared with Segesta and the Valley of Temples at Agrigento this is not worth a mention!

This looks like a dig that is underway. Hard to get a real sense of what it once was as the remnants of the temple are a bit sparse. Worth a quick visit.

Located on the way to Ortigia from Syracuse. There was no English explanation listed. Without translation and pre-read, it was just a pile of rocks.

This historical site is located near the bridges connecting the island town of Ortigia to neighbouring Siracusa. It probably, in itself, is not worth seeking out but it is certainly worth checking out if you are in this part of town. Many other, more striking,...More
