Siracusa Walks

Siracusa Walks

Defined by Cicero as “the most beautiful city in Magna Graecia”, Siracusa is an elegant town where the ancient Greek grandeur is still very much alive and historic jewels abound at every corner. An expert local guide will take you through the island of Ortigia, the soul of the city, connected to the mainland via two bridges. Streets are lined with honey-colored palaces and lead to the magnificent Cathedral Square, where light reflects off the bright stone facades of churches and palaces creating a dazzling effect. During the tour you will see Baroque churches and ancient Greek ruins, including the 6th-century Temple of Apollo and the beautiful Fonte Aretusa, a natural fountain surrounded by Greek legends. You will also pass through colorful shops and stalls selling wonderful Sicilian delicacies and beautiful artisanal pieces, as well as panoramic spots like the Maniace Castle.
