A large part of the parc ( quarries and orchard) was closed and the theater was under construction (to prepare a theater festival). Not enought maintenance of the site.

The most disappointing aspect of a site which historically is one of the most important in Sicily is the apparent lack of interest by the Italian authority charged with its care. At 10 euros entry, it is reasonable to expect an informative experience yet it...More

The place itself definitely worth a few hours of you time. Unfortunately during our visit many areas were closed and the site lacked in information for tourists.

The Greek and Roman theaters are fine BUT as others have said you must walk more than 400 meters round trip passing a row of sleazy souvenir shops to buy you ticket.

Con artists trying to sell on street parking full of tacky souvenir shops and tour buses and guides touting for business. And 10 euros entrance fee. Stay away !

Apart from the Ear of Dionysius (reviewed separately), the highlight of my visit was the Roman Amphitheatre. It doesn't take much imagination to place yourself back in its heyday, preferably as a spectator. However, as has been remarked upon, the site could do with a...More

The site itself is definitely worth a visit but I want to deal with practicalities. To obtain a ticket you have to walk quite a distance as the ticket office is not at the entrance to the site where you would expect it. The ladies...More

This is one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy. It is claimed to have the largest Greek theatre - and that is, indeed, impressive. But most of the other features of the Parco are either overgrown (the Roman theatre, for instance) or roped...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
