Beautiful. Worth the trip. I came from Malta for 24 hours and would have stayed 10 days if I could. There is lots to see for a small island but be sure to find the good food spots. Can be spotty.

Beautiful church art and architecture. Come see how the ancient Greek stone was used to help build the church and all of the grand marble. Set in Siracusa's most magnificent square.

Very interesting building in gorgeous square. Some areas cordoned off for prayers, but most is accessible. Beautiful floor, Marble columns, and some exhibits. Parts of the cathedral date back to Greek times, with later additions blending in to great effect. Unmissable.
