By this point in my journey, I had traveled all around Sicily. I stopped in Syracuse, which has a historic center with notable Greek and Roman ruins, culture, amphitheaters, architecture, and temples. Archimedes is said to have been born in Syracuse, as it was once a very powerful city-state in ancient times. There are several archaeological sites to see here, including Unesco World Heritage Sites. For example, the Greek theatre of Syracuse overlooks the modern city. Despite its decayed state, you can imagine how great the acoustics must have been. There is also a newer Roman city and ruins as well as the Roman amphitheatre. Surely, some of the most famous tragedies would have been performed here including Antigone, Oedipus Rex, Electra, Medea, and The Bacchae (my favorite). The masonry that you see is stunning, as well as the other points of interest, the Altar of Hieron and the cave, the Ear of Dionysius. On the peninsula, there is also the Temple of Apollo. The scenery, seaside, and marketes were beautiful. When I got to Catania, I walked many of the wonderful and lively streets. I enjoyed great street food, local culture and architecture near the cathedral square, and shopping along Via Etnea. If you like to walk like I do check out the scenes along Corso Italia, Via Pacini, Via Umberto I, and the various piazzas. I hope you enjoy my travel videos! Please come back and check out the highlights from my latest trips.
