___________ 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.
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?
