The place : Greek Theatre, Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

Ruins are an acquired taste I guess. The bad habit of visiting them under summer scorching sun and the fact that they sometimes leave a lot to imagination can prove a bit of a challenge. But me? I think at the end of the day it's the smooth stone that gets me, lying there patiently for all those centuries, turning the wrath of the elements into a gentle erosion . That's a lesson in resilience, no?
Syracuse’s Greek Theatre -or Teatro Greco- goes back to the 5th century BC (yes that means it is somehow 2500 years-old). 
The National Institute of Ancient Drama still holds performance there in the summer.
It is located in the Archaelogical park of Syracuse, right outside the city.
