    Stop At: Teatro Greco, Viale Paradiso 14 Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, 96100, Syracuse, Sicily Italy

    We have news of this theater since 500 BC, 2500 years ago and is currently one of the most famous monuments and the symbol of Syracuse.

    Since its creation it has enjoyed a lot of success, being an important meeting place for the Greeks and having been used later also by the Romans, to make shows. In the centuries to come it has been damaged, but today it is still possible to see the part carved into the rock, which allows us to appreciate its majesty. The missing blocks were probably used to make other buildings in the city in medieval times.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, Via Paradiso 14, 96100, Syracuse, Sicily Italy

    Roman amphitheater:

    The Roman Amphitheater of Syracuse is the second largest in Italy after that of Verona. It dates back to around 2000 years ago and can be reached via a path that features stone sarcophagi from the city's necropolis.

    Its dimensions are surprising and, in addition to the Amphitheater, the remains of an arch and those of a fountain are also visible. Also in this case only the part excavated in the rock remains, while the raised part has been dismantled in past centuries to make other constructions.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Ear of Dionysius (Orecchio di Dionisio), Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, Syracuse, Sicily Italy

    The Ear of Dionysus is an imposing artificial cave with incredible dimensions, 23 meters high. The origin of its name is attributable to Caravaggio who, while visiting the city, coined this singular name due to the donkey's ear shape of the entrance to the cave.

    Dionysius was a tyrant from Syracuse who had had the cave excavated to lock up the prisoners, who he listened to hidden in an upper cavity. This was possible thanks to the incredible acoustics of the cave, which can amplify the sounds even 16 times.

    Stop At: Parco Archeologico della Neapolis, Via Paradiso 14, 96100, Syracuse, Sicily Italy

    Cordari Cave:
    Not far from the Ear of Dionysius is the Cordari Cave, another artificial cave. Its name derives from the fact that it was used by the Cordari as a place to manufacture the ropes, work facilitated by the presence of humidity.

    Currently some parts are covered with moss and maidenhair, which create a magical atmosphere thanks to the particular play of light that is created inside. They were also used to extract limestone and this activity gave the cave a particular and square architecture.
