Step into ancient Syracuse: an archeological spectacle

Arrive at the 5th century BC at the Neapolis Archeological Park in Syracuse. Be captivated by the striking, majestic structures of the Greek and Roman civilizations. The park is situated on the mountainous Temenite Hill.

To the south, you'll tread the monumental Neapolis route; while to the north, you'll uncover the mysteries of the Latomìe. These enigmatic cavities in the rock were used as stone quarries and even prisons.

The mysteries of Mediterranean theatrical culture

The Greek Theatre, commissioned by tyrant Gelon and crafted by the renowned architect Damokopos, testifies to Syracuse's pivotal role in the expansion of performing arts culture. Here, Doric comedies originated, and mimes were invented!

Did you know that Aeschylus, the father of tragedy, penned and staged his play, the Aitnans, in this very theater in 476 BC? As you explore, look for the Greek inscription with Zeus Olympius' name in the theater's corridor.

Be sure to explore the Ear of Dionysius, a cave with a peculiar S-shaped form and exceptional acoustics, which Dionysius supposedly used to spy on his prisoners. Nearby, you can explore the Grotta dei Cordari, where artisans made ropes by hand in the naturally humid environment. Lastly, don't miss the Altar of Hieron II, where as many as 450 bulls were sacrificed during festive rituals!
