I would love to give this a better review, but somehow neither of us found it as interesting or as compelling has many other ancient sites in Sicily. If you are in the area, and have some free time, yes, go. But I would not...More

This site could have been so much better. The Roman amphitheater is impressive, but unfortunately you can only walk along half of it and not into the middle. Paths exist, but closed off. The Greek amphitheatre was almost totally covered in wood. I can see...More
