  • The Greek theatre is something to behold. Big and pretty well preserved. The roman amfitheater that is also there pales in comparison. The park with the caves is like a small green paradise, nice bonus after visiting the theatre. Worth 10 euros? Yes and no, all Sicily's sights seem to come at extortionate entry prices, but go there the first Sunday of the month and entry is free.
  • After finding where to pay and getting in, you find a garden, a small cave, and two amphitheatres. One in a poor state and surrounded by foliage so it looks like it is not well maintained but it could also be left like this, it is not clear. The second which is better looked after is covered in wooden coverings to protect the original seating areas and surrounding walls as it is used for concerts still. There is a cafe which we avoided but the prices looked shall we say, very high!. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.
