Itinerary A

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

The ancient Greeks carefully chose where to build the theatres.
From the theatre you could always see a beautiful panorama.
The theatre of Syracuse offered a view onto the port and the island of Ortygia.
Today, from the steps of the ancient cavea, the view over the Mediterranean Sea is now obscured by an expanse of trees and small shrubs which filter clear and greenish sunlight during the day, and red and warm light at sunset.
