... off some detailed city maps before I left Melbourne. Of course I didn't, and I haven't thought to save any on my limited internet time so far. So although I knew I wasn't far from my destination, I had no idea which way to go to reach the island of Ortigia, the old city. I managed to work out there was a shuttle to Ortigia every 20 mins.

... so there are some pretty amazing views. Also found in the park are a more rundown roman amphitheatre, a giant Greek sacrificial altar, and tall grotto known as the Ear of Dionysius, which because of its shape, can amplify the smallest sound to the loudest cry. The acoustics are incredible, which we experienced firsthand with the help of someone else's guide. It was pretty intense.
