Part of the archaeology park, it is a very large man made cave created as a result of quarry activity.

The Parco archeologico is a large site, but out of this site is opend only Ear of Dionysius, the rest is closed. It is disapointing experience to pay entrance and then stay behind the ropes that close the road to the monument.

I am not a cranky old man but 50 kids inside the cave (mine space) all trying to out do themselves whilst "deaf" teachers seemed completely oblivious to the noise did not provide for a pleasant experience whilst visiting one of the major historical sites...More

This one cave made the entry fee worthwhile, it would have been better if 2/3 of the lower park wasn’t roped off - looked like it wasn’t a new thing.

We had an excellent local guide but the place is crowded and you needed to keep up as a group to ensure you didn't get lost and managed to catch all the commentary

An achievement at a time without many excavation tools. Inside Neapolis archeological part in Siracusa. Interesting in combination with the visit to Teatro Greco

The highest cave I have ever seem it's just vast and well worth the money to get in to the site just to be able to say that you have visited it

A really large impressive cave that must have taken loads of hours to dig out of the mountain. Did they use slaves?

We hired Ms Eva Paola Greco as our guide. She gave us more historical insight that we would have otherwise missed. She was well worth it
