Part of the Archeological Park, this is a scenic walk in nature on which you can hear birds sing, smell the wonderful scents of flowers and admire an old ruin. This is also the way to the Dionysos Ear cavern. I was lucky to be...More

Roman Amphitheatres can be found everywhere in Europe and in all of them you can enter it and walk around. Why is this, not very spectacular, specimen not accessible? The same holds true for the Altar of Hieron II.

It was nice to stroll in the park and you can see the Ear of Dionysus as well. The whole are used to be a stone quarries and prison.

The park has been built in the remains of the old stone quarries in Neapolis. It was nice to stroll around the shady paths and enjoy the plants and flowers, but most of the paths were closed due to the weather.

The area actually give access to two other caves but these are closed off at the moment ( rock fall?) The park and garden is nevertheless attractive and a good place for a shady - cooler picnic lunch! Watch out for mosquitoes in October however.

A nice quarry that has plants and trees and flowers growing where slaves once cut stone...a nice respite from the overbearing sun and brutal July heat when you visit this archeological park but nothing crazy special here.
