Its advertised as the Greek theatro but in fact the ruins ate quite extensive and also include a part rebuilt basilica, a bath house complex and a small museum. Great to wander.

Our tourist stop on the way to Cefalu. Park below and take a shuttle bus up. There’s still a bit of an uphill walk to the piazza in front of the church. Keep on going through the places selling tourist trinkets to finally get to...More
