Well worth the drive from Noto. Lots of information about the site in English and Italian and the site was bigger than we were expecting.

The site isn't that well signposted ( it's a steep climb up the hill from the town's main square), but it's well worth making the effort to get there. We were virtually the only people there, which made our visit very atmospheric. The Greek theatre is impressive,ditto the 250m or so stretch of (Roman?) road which has been unearthed. The cave system below the theatre was very interesting, as it contained many catacombs with a Roman relief carved into the rocks above an entrance. There is a small museum on site but unfortunately there was nothing in it in English. Finally, if you are a plant lover you should be impressed by all the wildflowers growing around the site. So if you combine this with a visit to the town below, this makes for a great day out IMHO.

Historical site that could explain how important was this area in the glorious past....but not now. Very very abandoned not evaluated and with a bad management that aims to the business of the entry tickets only. What could be an interesting area of caves, graves and ruins is actually a bushy groove of wild grass. Not even fix the garbage bin around left broken with the litter inside. This site represents how DO NOT MANAGE an archaeological site!

This is a small site, the theatre area is well kept and quite intact (at the time we were there, a stage had been built so obviously still used) but the rest of the ruins are overgrown and not maintained. This makes for some fun exploring by the kids (including some intact burial sites?) but bring water as there are no facilities there. You can only access certain areas but enough to make it worth a trip if you’re in the area.

Nice quiet archeological site with less of the crowds and some fun exploring to be had as some areas are a little overgrown. The hypogea/ burial sites are accessible and kids get a thrill in the dark caves. I like the freedom you get here without the crowds. Makes for a more enjoyable visit. There was some info supplied at entry.
