Interesting archaeological area.The only thing that is a disappointment is that the signage is poor and a lot of the theatre is covered by wooden benches.Nice view from the top. Gardens and Ear of Dionysus are on the same site.

Yes, it is a must but be prepared for crowds of school kids! Also, it looks easy enough to walk here from Ortigia but it is a long walk. Use a taxi, as we did on the way back. The fare was 15 Euros and...More

Such a disappointing visit. The theatre is now used for outdoor concerts and the seats were being covered over and boxed in, no doubt to protect them. So as an archaeological site, it was a wash out. I didn't pay to see boxes and cranes.

This should be a great site to visit and ten euros should not feel like overpaying. Sadly this isn't the case. The site is poorly maintained and presented, with many paths closed (no reasons given) and very little information available whilst walking around (I presume...More

The Greek Theatre was covered in plywood seating, stairs and signage for the theatre season which totally detracted from the ancient theatre itself. There was barely any information provided and we were asked to leave at 4.30 as they had to begin theatre preparations.

The Greek theatre itself is covered with timber boards for seats and the stage is set up with modern equipment for performances. So it is not suitable for photography but would by lovely to see a play there. The area above is very interesting -...More

This place should be so rewarding to visit. However, as previous reviews have stated, it’s a building site. The original stone seating covered in grey wood, and towers of scaffolding for the spot lights. I think ( no info on site) that the area above...More
