The Greek Ampitheatre which is situated in the same Archaeological site is better preserved than the Roman Ampitheatre - but the size of the theatre is enormous. Both worth the visit and included in the general tour of what is an extensive conglomeration of ancient public buildings

We recently visited this archeological site, but were very disappointed. The site has the potential to be a first class tourist attraction, but it sorely lacks some very basic care and maintenance. Most of the walking paths were closed off to the visitor and appeared to not have been in use for quite a time. The paths that are used... More

As part of 10 Euro entrance fee to the archological site, the first thing you can visit is the Roman Amphitheatre. This rather seems like an add-on given there are quite a number of better preserved sites around. It would also seem that this site is the best described and labelled of all the attractions in the park (perhaps they... More

The amphitheatre looks half-excavated and is covered in weeds. Most of the paths are blocked off, and you can only look down on the structure. But the remains are still interesting, and it's a tranquil and relaxing spot.

While the amphitheatre is well persevered considering it's age the access areas are poorly maintained.

Still in pretty good shape with lots of signage explaining everything in detail. Do not miss this, close to the Greek amphitheater

The ticket gets you in to see the whole park. The roman theatre is in a poorer state than the Greek one. Interesting nevertheless. Some info would help.

This site sadly had many parts closed off - due to September rains apparently - some reporters say this was also true in July. It is still impressive if not the scale of the Greek amphitheatre and for a different type of entertainment. The names of prominent Romans are inscribed by their seats - but it is impossible to see.... More

The Roman Amphitheater is situated close to the Greek Theater in the archaeological area of Siracusa. Back in the day, gladiators clashed here, and tons of sand was used to cover the blood. You can imagine it all in your mind's eye when seeing this structure.

Possible still to make out the amphitheatre even though there is little remaining. Great history attached and best viewed for the first time with a guide.
