The theater of Syracuse, the unfailing link with the ancient Greeks

In Syracuse, in the Neapolis Archaeological Park, we can admire one of the most majestic theatres in the Greek world: the city theatre, which we know in its semicircular form shaped by the tyrant Hiero II around the 3rd century BC.

The structure has a cavea with a diameter of 138 metres. The 67 orders of steps carved into the rock still come alive every year, when a series of classical performances is staged, attracting visitors from all over Italy.
