Nice views as you walk up. I’m sure this place is fascinating but other than the amphitheater we didn’t have a clue what we are looking at as there were no signs or information boards, other than a room containing some literature in Italian. Very...More

We were disappointed in this site. We were provided with neither map or information board so we had no idea what we were looking at. Very overgrown in parts

In fact we were visiting Siracuse mainly for the archeological park. The walk through the park was nice. However 3/4 of the Greek Theatre was covered with grey shelfs. It is ok that they try to protect this ancient ruins, but what if yo cannot...More

As said before, it is uncrowded so if you want a quieter attraction, this is the place. A great view from the top as well. We were fortunate to have an Italian friend to guide us but could imagine that information boards would be difficult....More
