The largely fallen Apollo Temple was a massive construction that dominates the central square of Siracusa. The square has many cafes with pleasant atmospheres. The area is surrounded by Mediterranean and inlets. Behind the square are a warren of one small car width roads lined by homes, B&Bs, restaurants, churches, hotels, and museums. It is different from anything I have... More

Impressive Baroque outside and beautiful piazza but again you need to pay to enter- I would have liked to enter and always happy to make a donation- but not pay a fee to enter.

The beauty of the place and the serenity. How people in centuries ago could build and design what today would have to be done on a computer. With modern machinery not by hand and a skilled eye.

The inside of the Duomo has some beautiful metal doors around the side alters. It costs about 2 euro to go inside and make sure more arms are covered... More

Wonderful church built on a Greek temple. Set in a magnificent piazza. Love Siracusa and this is one of the highlights. Sit on the stairs , eating an ice cream and watching the world go past. You may never leave.
