Parking was an issue to begin with. The only parking we could find in the area were the blue (fee payable) bays on the street running alongside the park. Both pay machines were not operating. We had to trust leaving a sign in the car...More

Bought a composite ticket at the museum which saved battling the crowds in the chaotic bus park. The amphitheatre is quite complete but would disappoint if you have been, say, to Orange in France. Best is the view from the top. Best bit by far...More

Go early 0830 to avoid hoards, ask the staff about a non signposted route to see the amphitheatre properly. The Greek theatre is covered in modern seating, very understandable but the effect is diminished. Nevertheless well worth the trek to get there

I enjoy visiting ruins but this park is not worth the 10 euro entry fee. The amphitheater has had a modern make over for concerts and the other exhibits are overgrown with weeds. All the toilets are not in use so u have to use...More

We cannot understand how this place has received such high ratings. After visiting the wonderfully preserved Greek theaters of Taormina and Catania, this place was awful! While the antiteatro was enjoyable to walk around, the main theater had been renovated with row upon row of...More
