A leap into ancient history

Syracuse has been inhabited since ancient times. Thanks to its location and its natural harbor was one of the greatest Greek city.
At present the city consists of the old town, the small island of Ortigia and the expanding area.
On the small island the visitors can discover the glorious past of Syracuse, as shown by the numerous attractions such as the Greek temple of Apollo, churches and buildings erected during the Aragonese and Swabian domination and in Baroque style.
On the island of Ortigia there is the Fountain of Arethusa, a natural fountain, a symbol of the Greek culture and mythology.

The Cathedral of Syracuse

Another important monument located on Ortygia island is the Cathedral, whose structure was originally a Greek temple.

The Archeological Park

It takes about two hours to visit the main attractions of this park: the Greek Theater, the Altar of Hieron, the Ear of Dionysius and the Roman amphitheater.
