I have started out this selection with a Panorama of the Greek Theatre at Siracusa mentioned in history as early as the 5th century BC. Greek tragedies were performed here and still are to this day. The theatre seats as many as 15,000 spectators and is 138 meters in diameter. It is carved out of the bedrock of limestone instead of being built of blocks of stone.
The next three shots are of the Roman amphitheatre from around 3rd or 4th century AD. Once again carved out of the rock.
The next four are back to the Greek theatre and surrounds with the main roadway,the Via de Sepolcri , showing the deep rutting made by the cart wheels.
The next three are in the Latomia del Paradiso, the ancient stone quarry.
The shots are of the so called Dionysius's Ear a man made grotto 65m long and 23m high. The grotto is renowned for it's amazing acoustics.
Then the rope makers grotto. The damp conditions were ideal for their trade.
Finally a panorama of the Via de Sepolcri to finish the tour.
A "must see" for visitors to this city.
