“Between wonder and beauty, the wildness of the island”
by Gino Morabito
Archimedes is said to have protected her with a gigantic system of mirrors, the reflection of which set fire to the sails of Roman enemies. We are in Syracuse and more precisely in Ortigia. The centerpiece is Piazza del Duomo, a wonderful rift within the maze of streets that cross the island. Walking through the alleys is a discovery, among balconies, churches, squares and shops populated with people and history.
The beauty of the buildings and the triumph of the Baroque perfectly express the greatness that this place must have represented in the past. But Siracusa is not only Ortigia, it is also the archaeological area, tasting excellent fish, getting lost in the noises and smells of the central market, cooling off with a granita that satisfies our senses and restores us; is letting yourself be caught in the legend that surrounds the Dionysus Ear and witnessing a classic tragedy in the wonderful Greek Theater.After falling in love with the city, we continue our journey to the capital of Sicilian Baroque.
