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.

6c BC and still impressive. It must have been spectacular when it was covered in polychrome terracotta (now in the archaeological museum).

These are old ruins at the entrance to Ortygia just next to the bridges. You will probably walk past without taking special notice. As part of the scenery the ruins are fine but they are not a destination in themselves. Obviously there is no charge...More

Free. Worth seeing if you are staying on or near Ortygia. Next to the excellent morning market. Just a few minutes walk from the bridges connecting Ortygia to the rest of Siracusa.

This temple is nothing spectacular since it is mostly a ruin and relatively small. Since it’s on Ortigia, one may as well stop there. It is a nice photo op.

This is centered in the old city of Siracusa and is a great place to meet up with friends after spreading around to eat and shop for the day.

Certainly this is pretty ancient, but not surpisingly not much is left! Worth stopping to see for a couple of minutes if you are strolling around Ortigia. Located at the end of one of expensive shopping streets, which might enable a blance of activities!

Even if the remaining ruins are incomplete to really show what the building was, the style of the architecture and the size of the pillars and walls can help get the feeling of how monumental this temple was.

Not as impressive as the Greek Theatre! Have a look at it in passing or if you are on the Siracusa Open Tour red bus.

Unfortunately, due to the ravages of time and the actions of local inhabitants who removed stone from the temple to use in other constuctions there is not much remaining to see. But it is nonetheless worth a pause as you will no doubt pass it...More
