Ear of Dionysus (Orecchio di Dionisio)

Highly recommended
Caravaggio christened this amazing cave in the Latomia del Paradiso quarry: as a result of its exceptional acoustics, the tyrant Dionysus could, it is said, hear everything his opponents whispered. A legend, of course: nevertheless this place, created as a reult of stone quarrying, is quite fabulous!
