A must for your visit to Siracusa, enormous Greek and Roman amphitheaters, very impressive sites. The former rock quarry is now a huge garden with caves and citrus trees. Lots of photo ops.

If you are a history buff you will love this park. It contains very complete ruins of both a Greek theatre and a Roman theatre, plus the Ear of Dionysius. One admissions covers all. We came in November, so it wasn't crowded and weather was still pleasant. Take your time and use your imagination to see the actual theatres in... More

I felt very moved by the fact I was walking on grounds where gladiators had shed their blood and given their lives. This place is very rich in history and I wonder if the people of the area are aware of how historical their town is.

There is not much more anyone can add to all the other contributions made by visitors. Ancient ruins in the park provide evidence of the importance of Siracusa in the Ancient world. The highlights were the enormous Greek amphitheatre; the soaring cave of Dionysus; and the quarries where the stones for the buildings were excavated.

Located in the northwest part of the city and with varied vegetation, this large archeological site is best suite for a morning visit to avoid both the crowd and the heat in the summer. The entrance fee is 10 Euros per person. There is a lot to see starting with the Roman amphitheater which was partly carved out of rock... More

The best part about this attraction is its setting - a beautiful city park. When you walk through the park to see the ancient Roman and Greek ruins you are cooled by the shade of trees and calmed by the scent of orange blossom and the sound of birds. Siracusa can be hot and crowded but this park is a... More

Where else can you see a both an ancient Greek theater and a Roman Amphitheater with in a stones throw. And a rock quarry with beautiful gardens and cool caves - including the mysterious Ear of Dionysius (I dare you to go all the way in.)

This site is home the Roman amphitheatre, the Greek theatre, and the Ear of Dionysius, all must-sees when visiting Siracusa. It is a lovely walk to wander around the sites, surrounded by pine trees and gardens. The amphitheatre is interesting, especially with its well and entrance, while the Greek theatre is huge and quite well-preserved. i visited with my son... More

We contracted with a local guide, Chiara Raudino (she's on FB, look her up under "Chiara Raudino Tourist Guide") to walk us through the park. Her knowledge of Sicilian history was extensive and truly made the walk a learning experience. She also offers Sicilian cooking lessons which we would have tried had we more time in the area. Worth the... More

We got the bus up here which drops you in an area full of tat stalls. It took a while to find the ticket office which couldn't be seen from the main area and parted with our €20. We didn't get a guide, or even a leaflet with an orientation map. A small sign on the box office window said... More
