Ponte Umbertino aka Ponte Nuovo
This bridge is the main access to Ortygia. Its name comes from Umberto I king of Italy (1878-1900). Once upon a time there were spanish fortresses, and a great door, Porta Ligne, built between 1675-1677, which had a wooden drawbridge. Both of them were destroyed at the end of '800. A new (nuovo) bridge was built there, in accordance with baroque style (1899), plus a widened later, until 6 m (1900-1901). After many years, they made some big widenings and then a reinforcement work, only a few years ago.
This is Greek theatre in Siracusa . The theatre is the biggest in Sicily and in the Magna Graecia . It is mostly cut into the rock , it is divided into nine vertical sectors and horizontally divided by a corridor (diazoma) which goes through it for all its length .
This is my favorite picture I took in Siracusa . When I visited there , in fact , it was not good weather at that time . But I still enjoy my journey . Because that my first time trying go travel alone . Control all stuff by myself . I did it !! This trip gives me good experience to travel alone .
