Overview

Highlights

  • Walk amongst 2,000 years of history at one of Sicily's most impressive and oldest attractions. It has quarries, lush vegetation, and caves
  • Don't miss the auditorium! It was even modified by the Romans to feature entry portals, so lions and gladiators could enter the arena!
  • Be sure to explore the rest of the sites on the grounds including the Ear of Dionysius, a 23-meter-high grotto surrounded by lush greenery

Description

The archaeological park of Neapolis hosts the most important ruins of the Ancient Greek and Roman city of Syracuse. You are literally walking amongst thousands of years of history!

Check out the Latomie del Paradiso, a mysterious, deep, limestone quarry that provided the stone to build this ancient city. Be wowed by the abundance of citrus trees in the area and the Ear of Dionysius, a 23-meter-high grotto that cuts into the cliffside by 65 meters. It's said that Dionysius used the excellent acoustics of the quarry to eavesdrop on his prisoners!

The highlight has to be the well-preserved Roman amphitheatre of Syracuse, which once boasted 15,000 seats and special portals for easy access for gladiators and all their props. (Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!).

Every ticket includes a free, downloadable map of Sicily.
