Siracusa

Siracusa square

Historic city in southern Italy

Siracusa is one of Sicily’s most beautiful gems, a historic town, with a rich legacy, that attracts a number of tourists who enjoy the arts, but also travelers looking for a calm nature oasis. Siracusa is also a place to learn about traditional Italian cuisine. A journey back in time, Siracusa (Syracuse) is one of those rare places that still preserve their authenticity. Add to your Siracusa travel guide the Valle dei Templi, an archaeological site in Agrigento, three hours drive from Siracusa, yet one of the most outstanding examples of Greater Greece art and architecture.
