What an amazing place and what incredible history. Ancient Greeks, slaves, Romans, sacrifices, a quarry, the ear of Dionysius etc etc. But without a guide it would be difficult to learn all about it. This is one of the reasons we came to Sicily. Don't...More

There is a Greek theatre, a Roman amphitheatre and all manner of caves here. There is a lot to see and it should be amazing. The only thing that is lacking is signage to help you make sense of it. If you are happy to...More

This park has so much potential, but unfortunately it is not very well kept, in fact it seems downright neglected. It would also be very helpful for foreign tourists if information could be in English as well.

Important objective to visit and to do when in siracusa. The most interesting part of this is the ear of dionisio and the part of bambus trees .

Spent around around two hours exploring this site. Getting an Audio guide or hiring a tour guide is a must as signage and explanations are pretty woeful and it would be a shame to not understand what you are looking at. Felt the park at...More

This is a large park which includes a number of features and sites. It has a (refurbished) Greek Theatre which had been quarried out of the hillside, which is still used today by the locals. Also in the park is the quarry which gives rise...More

Buy a digital guide, some water and walk into history. Forget tourism for a second, and see how Greek and Roman history unfolds in Siracusa. Don't expect fireworks, but the history speaks for itself and imagine the Greek theatre in ancient times (paid for by...More

The park has many attractions within it to see. Heaped in history and culture this place is a must see whilst visiting or passing by Syracuse you won't be disappointed.

I would give this a 3.5, if I could, mostly because the site signage, lack of explanations, and general site organization make it a cumbersome experience. This is a great place to visit if you like archaeology/history. But before you go, plan out your day....More

Hi Kristel, We walked from Ortygia, so I didn't really pay attention to street names and carparks. As you approach the park, you'll see the entrance to the park on one side of the road, and on the other, a large area with... More
