Apart from the Ear of Dionysius (reviewed separately), the highlight of my visit was the Roman Amphitheatre. It doesn't take much imagination to place yourself back in its heyday, preferably as a spectator. However, as has been remarked upon, the site could do with a...More

plenty to see and do here, lots to explore. Easy to navigate. Bring along a bottle of water, as it can be warm.

The great tragedies of Aeschylus are said to have first been performed here. Walking around this wonderful theater one is filled with awe at that very thought. Wouldn't it be just like the Roman to alter the theater the better to perform gladiatorial games-- says...More

It is much more in the Parco Archeologico della Neapolis than the ruins of the amazing Greek Theater which dates back to 406 BC (I posted a separate review for it) which is certainly a major highlight. There is also the ruins of the Roman...More

Even if you're not that much of a history buff this is a terrific site. The theater, amphitheater, Ear of Dionysus, just wandering. I did go with a guide which probably makes a big difference, but if you do a little prep work and take...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
