I went to this place many years ago with the school for the first time as we were studying Ancient Greece, which were the people who colonised Giardini Naxos. I was surprised at some of the things that are in this museum. It's really interesting...More

The site was closed in February but as we walked around the perimeter it was overgrown with vegetation and weeds and looked sadly neglected.

Amazing items in an obscure corner. The site is very big for what it offers - the interesting bits are at the opposite corner from the entrance, but the small museum has some amazing, often archaic, material

The archaeological "park" is actually empty and not well maintained, wile the museum is old and doesn't worth the visit. Pity, since it is one of the oldest greek towns in the island. Free entrance on Sundays

Okay, it's only 4 euros to get in but it is mainly an overgrown area with a few ruined walls to see. Better to pay more and take a tour to one of the many other ruins across Sicily.

If you are in Giardini Naxos and have few spare hours which you do not want to spend lying on the beach than this is the right place for you (as was for us). The place is huge so you can spend at least 1...More

Beautiful site spread over large area with ruins of habitation from bronze age onwards. Small museum - most of the 'prime' pieces had been taken away to larger museums, but still well-worth a visit!
