Well worth the hike up the small hill to get a sense of the scale of this place and the views of Ortigia and the sea in the distance. There is a natural spring with crystal clear water rising out of an grotto at the...More

The theater is beautiful and needs to be visited. The only problem is that most likely rehabilitation works are being done. It's disturbing if you want to take a picture.

We visited one hot day in September. The theatre is still used for plays etc but nothing was on whilst we were in Sicily. Well worth the visit.

If you are an avid walker, it should be possible. Be aware that its generally uphill along busy streets that are less than photogenic. Personally, I think there are better uses for your time. Our hotel was a bit closer, but... More
