Syracuse has a large Greek amphitheater (literally carved out of the rock) and also a Roman one, both well preserved. Syracuse is the city of Italy that preserves more Greek history, its own name already transports you to the ancient Greek Empire.

Syracuse's older residential quarter is an island, Ortigia, from the Greek quail, probably named for that bird's abundance in this area. Ortigia is connected with the island of Sicily through two short bridges and is known for, among many other things, the freshwater Spring of Arethusa.
