Siracusa

Cities and Towns in Sicily

Founded by the Corinthians, the name Siracusa derives from the nearby marshland, "Sykara". Over the centuries, Siracusa has been conquered by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Goti, the Arabs, the Normany, the Genovesi, the Svevi and the Aragons.

This vibrant history has left it with a wealth of monuments, the most important of which can be found in the Archeological park of the Neapolis. Here one finds the Greek Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Latomia del Paradiso, the Grotta dei Cordari, the Ara di Lerone, Porta Urbica, Apollo's Temple, the Cathedral and Athena's Temple, Zeus's Temple, the Gymnasium, the Catacombs, the Paolo Orsi Museum and Eurialo Castle.

Whilst at Siracusa visitors should not miss the opportunity to see the Regional Gallery of Palazzo Bellomo, the Museum of the Papiro and the Cinema Museum. The principal economic activities of Siracusa, despite the increase in modern industrial activity, are still those based on agriculture, cattle farming and fishing. Among the gastronomic delights the tuna fish, purpetti di tonno da Zà Cicca really must be tasted.

Incredible Experiences in Italy for Exceptional Prices

Client Testimonials

In August 2018, my family of four and myself travelled from Vancouver, BC to Rome Italy and spent 3 weeks touring Italy with IVS.

This company had come highly recommended by many friends and associates of ours who had used them before and indeed to say they do an outstanding job is an understatement. You can tell while being in Italy that it is one complicated place to run tours in, just by the sheer nature of the place. There are many rules and we noticed traffic complications in a variety of places which this company being on the ground, advised us of and made sure we were not caught up in it.

Overall, our experience was truly outstanding and we plan on going back to Italy in the future, this time hopefully without our kids and definitely using this company again. Nothing but good things to say about the entire experience!
