One of the great sights in Siracusa is it’s Duomo, mainly because as our local tour guide told us, it expresses the history of Siracusa in just one place, from it’s early rise as a Greek Temple to honor Athena to it’s current state as a christian church, with Greek pillars, Norman traits, and Baroque façade. It really is a beautiful hodgepodge!
Near il Duomo is the Church of St. Lucia, which host Caravaggio's "The Burial of Santa Lucia" it's really worth seeing if you have the time.We also visited the Archeological Park of the Neapolis (New City), which has a Greek Theater, the second largest in the Mediterranean with seats for 15k spectators. It is also the only Greek theater that is monolithic, carved out of one mountain. It also hosts a Roman Amphitheater, which is one of the largest in the world. The Roman Amphitheater was made with part of the Greek Theater, apparently the Romans were the jealous kind.
