Excursions and Local Attractions
Ancient Greek colony, Syracuse is the city of Gods and Nymphs where the sea is sensuality, laps and seduces the city everywhere.
Ortigya, the historic center of Syracuse, is an island by the sea where it is pleasant to swim in the Summer, enjoy the sunset or go boating along the bay and the coast. Walking through narrow streets and historic buildings, art and craft shops, visiting art collections in buildings that are themselves artistic masterpieces such as the Palazzo Bellomo Museum, the hypogeum, which reaches Piazza Duomo to Marina, the Jewish Baths, a recent extraordinary discovery in the Giudecca district and much more. Atmosphere is the traditional Italian aperitif watching the sunset over the sea, having breakfast with almond granita and brioche, strictly hot. From the Fonte Aretusa, where the ancient papyrus grow wild, look at the moon and the lights of the fishermen's. boats. In Syracuse, especially in Summer, there are numerous evening shows, easily enjoyed.
