Take the Hop on tour out to this amazing site. It is not to be missed. The entire area should be seen and the bus is extremely helpful.

It could have signage, stories or some indication of what and how things were there. You get one line in the map and no other info. You see some carvings in the lower parts of the walls, something was there, but what? Typical of the...More

Well worth the 10 euros. It's much more impressive in real life than the photos. The greek theatre was a little disappointing there was alot of building work going on which spoilt it a bit.

Visit the amphitheater which is unbelievable and step into Dionysius Ear, a natural cave with a natural echo. If one of the guides sing is beatiful

Worth a look. Hopefully it won't be filled with a large and noisy tour group - practicing their singing. The physical space is extraordinary and worth being inside the cave and marvel at the height and the smoothness of the walls.

If you are visiting the Roman theater be sure to walk over to the caves nearby. Great geology and a cool experience

Entering this cavern at the same time as a hundred or so Italian schoolchildren is harmful to the ears. If it has the echo described that isn't apparent amidst such a cacophony. As an interesting diversion on a tour of the whole site it is...More

This is amazing, large dark and very interesting. Resident birds make for and strange noise and echos. The walking path to the opening is gently slopped and easy to navigate. Much of the area is blocked off but a nice peaceful space to wonder through.

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
