This is a view of Syracuse, Sicily. This city is so compact you can barely see in between building and houses. You can also see like a wall surrounding the city so the water doesn't flood the city so easily.
One of the best known and most visited monuments in Sicily: Villa Palagonia in Bagheria. This superb and eccentric villa was already visited by famous travellers in the 17th century, who considered it "the most original in the world and famous throughout Europe".
