Great site - easy to access

Sadly you can only walk around one side of this and so it is difficult to get a feel for the sheer size of this and there is not much information but is is a great place to visit.

Near the Greek amphitheater, level walk, toilets nearby, on the way back to car or bus stop. Can't enter, but viewed from above.

How cool was this!?! Just like "Gladiator" only right there in front of us. It's almost surreal to see the kinds of structures that you've only read about.

covered with wood...no worth the time or money to see it. Go to Taorina instead...much better in every way.

While the amphitheater is well persevered considering it's age the access areas are poorly maintained and when I visited a majority of the paths were closed. You can see a majority of the structure including the seating areas,tunnels that have been dug into the rock. It wasn't that busy when I visited which allowed for some great photos without people...

It's so poorly maintained that a history lover should cry over these ruins. Especially after paying €10 for the admission to the archeological park.

The Roman amphitheatre is sufficiently well preserved to get a good feel for what went on in the structure. It is large and the seating and support tunnels are clearly still in place

The great thing about visiting Siricusa is everything is very centrally located. As the Greeks and Romans built many old temples and theaters next to each other. Generally each stop has several things to see.

One ticket will get you into the park where you can see the roman and Greek theaters. Hard to find so ask your hotel staff for good directions or use a GPS. If you love ancient history you'll enjoy walking around the park.
