It is as if the Sicilians are not proud of there impressive heritage. The ticketoffice is at the other side of the street, after a lot of souvenirsshops. Different prices for different illogical combination of entrances. The Roman arena is an old overgrown place, no...More

What should be great is basically poor. Of course it's in disrepair, that's the point, but the overall facility is poorly run and it basically seems klike take your 10 Euros and good luck. Poor viewing points and little care taken.

The archaeological site is large and the ticket office is located some distance away. We parked on one side and had to walk through the site to buy our tickets. The information leaflet is limited as are the information boards. Definitely do your homework before...More

As other reviewers have noted this is a very popular place for tourist buses and schoolchildren to visit so the site is quite crowded (and it is not peak season yet). The ticket office is located on the other side of the road from the...More

I was real looking forward to seeing the historic sites in the park. Sadly the Greek theatre was covered in wooden boards and workmen preparing for a theatre performance in the coming weeks. Great that they are using it but I could barely see any...More

While traveling there is often a trade-off between seeing remarkable things and suffering from overwhelming crowds. How much of the latter do you want to put up with to see the former? At Pompeii, for example, there are huge crowds, but what you see is...More

I don't know why tourist guide books praise it so much. The entire park consists of an amphitheater, poorly maintained and completely claimed by overgrowth; a Greek theater where a stage and seats of some sorts were being installed; and the old quarry named Ear...More

This is a great site as there are plenty of interesting things to see (Roman amphitheatre, Greek theatre, Ear of Dionysis) in a conveniently small park. We were very disappointed, however, with how poorly maintained it was (some parts were quite overrun with weeds), and...More

Hi Kristel, We walked from Ortygia, so I didn't really pay attention to street names and carparks. As you approach the park, you'll see the entrance to the park on one side of the road, and on the other, a large area with... More
