Surprising find in the middle of Catania

 

Today was student project day on our fieldtrip to Sicily. I accompanied some students interested in archaeology to this Greek and then Roman amphitheater that I had found yesterday in the middle of Catania.

From the outside you would not know this amazing site was there as it is surrounded by modern houses. However, once inside the true majesty of the ruins are spectacular to see. Looking forward to seeing what our students made of the site in their presentations tomorrow.
