About: Greek Theater of Syracuse

Suggested by Tiqets

Situated in a prime location in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily – and thus Syracuse – was influenced significantly by ancient Rome and Greece. Filled with relics, the Paolo Orsi Museum weaves together the fabric of times in a chronological journey through Syracuse's history from prehistory through the fall of the Roman Empire. There's plenty of artifacts to make your journey through the ages even more fascinating, and a collection of medals in the basement to admire, including depictions of Hercules wrestling the lion during his twelve labors.

The castle was built in the early 13th century by Emperor Frederick II and was home to a number of Sicilian queens from the 14th to 16th centuries. While some of its former glory may be gone, remnants of this once great castle remain, including intricate masonry.

Neapolis Archaeological Park is an archaeological park that's open to the public year-round. It is home to the Greek Theatre of Syracuse, which was constructed in the 5th century BC and rebuilt in the 3rd century, with revisions by the Romans for gladiator access. You'll also find the Latomie del Paradiso, a mysterious, deep, limestone quarry that provided the stone to build this ancient city, and the Ear of Dionysius, a 23-meter-high grotto. It's said that Dionysius used the excellent acoustics of the quarry to eavesdrop on his prisoners! Neapolis Archaeological Park is a top archaeological site and tourist attraction in Syracuse, Italy.

The Ancient Theater of Taormina is an ancient Greco-Roman amphitheater in Taormina, Sicily.
