Siracusa


Day 7

Siracusa was Justine’s favorite place. In the morning we explored the local market and Cathedral of Siracusa.

The Cathedral was originally a Greek temple built in 5th century B.C. and was later converted to a mosque and then a church. 

 We also attended a traditional Sicilian puppet show.

We had time to ourselves in the afternoon so we took a boat ride around the island of Ortygia, and of course found another place to swim.

 

We climbed all the way down this ladder to swim!
