The noon bells rang as we marveled at the beauty of the piazza of the Duomo in Siracusa, Sicily. We've strolled along the cobble streets and tiny alley ways this morning and now its time for lunch and we stop at a cafe with a stunning view of the cathedral that is both Norman and Baroque, having been reconstructed due to an earthquake in 1693. The Duomo of Siracusa is the standout site of the town. There is a holy place for Santa Lucia, an early, Christian martyr from Siracusa.
Jack feels a wonderful symmetry of our trip to Southern Italy coinciding with Father's Day as his Father was stationed here while in the US Army Air Corps.
I feel this is a lovely place to fulfill all of your southern Italian daydreams!
