We stayed at Siracusa few hours of time, much longer then it was planned but it was forced due to a heavy rain. My first visit to Sicily will be remembered for the bad weather conditions and lots of rain.
Besides historic sights, which are located in the outskirts of the town, Siracusa is known for its beautiful peninsula Ortigia where most of the highlits could be seen. To be honest, I did expect much more from this place and remained a bit disappointed. On the other hand, maybe it is heavy rain which spoiled all my expectations.%s?
