Interesting underground remains of an ancient geek Temple in Syracuse located aside the los Duomo. Ir deserves a visit. Adquiring the ticket to visit the Duomo it is possible to buy a joint ticket for just 1 euro more to visit both buildings.

I don't really think this is worth visiting as there are far more interesting relics to see in Ortigia. In fact we paid only €1 to enter as a combined ticket with the Duomo. It is certainly not worth €3. Essentially you view ancient foundations...More

This is easily a waste of 3 euro and the 3 minutes i spent walking about this place. Pure crap and of no interest whatsoever.

Glad we were offered this extra ticket with the Duomo ticket. We would probably have missed it otherwise. Very interesting excavations underground. I had a tiny rucksack with a small drinking water bottle & whilst turning around to speak with Mrs Fred it fell out...More

Offered a substantial entry discount with a ticket to the Duomo, but even at 1 Euro it was a bit much! The site is located under a building with only four things of worth to look at. Was done in less than five minutes.

Ticket sold in conjunction with the cathedral nearby, and a couple of very friendly young people checking tickets and offering advice. But despite the explanatory leaflet, it's difficult to understand what one is seeing. This is supposed to be the earliest Ionic temple in Magna...More

This is a small but interesting attraction. It won't take you long to visit but the chamber where they sat the dead people on seat that look like toilets until their insides drained out will stick in the memory for longer than you may wish!
