Itinerary B

[5]The panoramic view from the cavea of the Greek theatre

In ancient times, the choice of the place of construction of the theater was not random.
A typical feature of the Greek theaters was indeed the enhancement of the panoramic view. Even the Theater of Syracuse should not be exempt from this custom by offering a view of the arch of the port and the island of Ortigia.
Sitting on the steps of the Theater of Syracuse, the view of the Mediterranean is screened today by a huge expanse of trees and small shrubs from which the light filters clear and greenish by day, and red and warm during sunset.
