Syracuse

Syracuse is Sicily’s fourth-largest city after Palermo, Catania and Messina. Founded by Ancient Greeks, this city has a rich history and thanks to the Greek and Roman ruins it was inscribed on the World Heritage list. The atmosphere of previous eras is preserved also in the most picturesque part of the modern city, on the small island Ortigia. The island is only 1 km long so you can just have a nice walk and enjoy its marvellous views. Duomo, Castello Maniace, Fonte Aretusa, Fontata di Artemide – all these beautiful sightseeing attract tourists from all over the world. However, the main attraction of Syracuse is the Greek Theatre first built in the V century BC in the ancient city of Neapolis. This historical monument after the restoration work is still used for entertainment and theatrical performances.

Province of Syracuse is attractive not only for its rich history. Mild climate, warm sea and amazing nature make this region of Sicilia an ideal place for your active, romantic or family vacation. Splendid beaches of Fontane Bianche, tiny city of Avola known for its genuinely Sicilian wine Nero d’Avola, orange groves, city of Pachino famous for its excellent tomatoes and the city of Portopalo di Capo Passero situated on the southern cape of Sicily – all these places are absolutely worth visiting.
