“Terrific experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My friend sang the latin hymn Regina Coeli quietly into the wall of cave (having seen someone else doing it) and it resonated around the cave ... wonderful sound

“Great echo”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

A great respite from the heat, enjoy the echo. Too bad that the botanical garden nearby is blocked for walking through most of the paths.
especially enjoyable for kids.

“It is a cave”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Just a good place to go if you are a visiting the greek theater. I would not recommend it if it was not besides one of Siracusa's great attractions. It also helps to cool off from the Sicilian heat.

“amazing”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We visited at a moment when students were there. The guide sang a song for them which echoed and it was very special. The story is interesting too.

“Pretty cool”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This entire archeological park was unbelievable. Wear comfortable shoes and take lots of water. Even with temps in the average zone, the sun can be brutal. Get a guide!
