The ruins of the Temple of Apollo (7th-6th century BC) won't give you the whole picture; you should visit the archaeological museum in Syracuse to find out what the entire structure looked like.

Its always fascinating to see ruins in the middle of a busy part of a city like you will find in Rome. Not a lot to see and maybe they could have done more excavating but still pretty cool to see ruins, fairly close up,...More

The site is fenced in on all sides, but it provides a good view of the ruins. Located right next to the pedestrian bridge that crosses over onto Ortygia.

This is a waste of time. So small and destroyed. There is nothing to see. Visit the rest of Ortigia instead

On our wanderings in Syracuse, we came across this temple and enjoyed the view. We felt like meeting history (VIth century BC).

So understated you can walk by it. Life goes on as noraml around this site. It does not interfere with anything. Always great to see some Roman structures enduring.

In the centre of a few roads and a slightly run down section we would not have known what we were looking at had it not been for us having a guide on this day trip.

The area is fortunate to possess a number of iconic buildings. The Temple sits in the centre of town and does not seem overshadowed by the modern buildings surrounding it.

I visited this temple of Apollo of the ancient Greek and was surprise that the old ruins are still there, but disappointed about the level of excavation which I believe that more should have been done. Nevertheless it is still an interesting place, but may...More
