What you can expect
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, Syracuse is a fascinating window into ancient Greek history. Spend your day exploring its huge archaeological site, a real treasure of temples, amphitheatres and well-preserved monuments.
Founded by Corinthians in the 8th century BC, Syracuse became an important centre of ancient Greek culture. Visit its archaeological site, Neapolis, and see ruins of ancient monuments and temples. The impressive Greek Theatre, one of the largest ever built by ancient Greeks, is still used today for classic plays. Many visitors come here every year for the annual Greek Theatre Festival.
Marvel at the unspoiled beauty of the city and follow the meandering coastline to reach the island of Ortygia, Syracuse's historic centre. Ortygia is separated from the mainland by a narrow strip of seawater. Admire the crystalline waters and then stroll through the charming city centre.
Hear the mythic stories behind the fountain of Arethuse and admire the imposing Cathedral of Syracuse, an old Greek temple incorporated into a more modern church.
