Greek Theatre - Review

The Teatro Greco is one of the most uniquely structures built in ancient Syracuse. The Whole theatre is almost made entirely from a single rock formation and has ancient Roman/ Greek arena styled seating carved out in steps that overlook the main stage section. The theatre dates back to at least the 5th century BC and rebuilt in the 3rd century BC. However, much of its current structure (including its semi-circular design) dates back to the Roman period. The theatrical performances of Deinolocus, Epicharmus and Phormis were hosted here during the Classical period. Over time the theatre was inactive and was revived in the 16th century. In the early 20th century INDA started the annual Greek drama performances here and even today the performances are held here during sunset.

In spite of its sheer history and its distinct style what truly pulls tourists here is that the theatre functions to this day. On show night, the place closes early for tourists and soon the venue transforms into an art arena showcasing the latest talent. Come here to catch a  live theatrical play when in Syracuse.

Greek Theatre, Syracuse Reviews

  • This open air theatre is well worth a visit. If a show is on, go and see it. Tickets ranged from around €30 to over €70. We found the €30 tickets to be perfect - quite far from the stage but a great view of it and the rest of the site too. There also seemed to be a more relaxed atmosphere at the back and we were able to talk to one another while the show was going on without irritating others. There was also an English audio translation available for €5. If you get uncomfortable sitting on a wooden or stone step for too long then either bring a cushion or hire one from the theatre shop.

  • Very impressive. Would advice an (audio)guide (didn't have one, it seems we missed quite some info as there are no panels). Bring a hat/water!

  • We attended a performance of Heracles. Great costumes, some great acting although one of the leads did over act. The venue is spectacular especially as the sun set and sky changed to a violet blue.

  • It's worth a visit. It's a large and impressive site. Use the audio guide for best information. It was disappointing that much of the seating area was covered for a concert so you are not seeing the real thing.

  • 3rd visit still à great place to visit. But in the past more sites were accessible roman amphithéâtre and Big temple no longer accessible ...
