Directions to Greek Theatre Siracusa

The Teatro Greco of Siracusa was built in the fifth century and later the stage arena was enlarged to accommodate more spectators.

The old Greek plays and tragedies, written by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, are still being performed in this amphitheatre, which actually has been constructed for them. It is an unforgettable experience to see one of the tragedies in this place - even if you do not understand a word. It is the atmosphere that makes it. 

Performances of the old Greek plays take place yearly in May, so book well in advance your accommodation and, just to be on the safe side, also book your ticket in advance.

This imposing theatre which is the most spectacular monument of Siracusa, is built into the rocky sides of a hill. The high terrace above the theatre boasts a large artificial grotto from which gushes a spring, that used to supply the theatre.

In May, when the Greek tragedies take place, the archeological park closes at 16.30 h.
