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.

Client Testimonials

I have traveled to Italy 2x with the IVS for my own pleasure trips and 2x for business with IVS. These guys really pay attention and make your trip go like clockwork. Italy is nuts, just saying! There are so many rules and restrictions now, so we did not want to drive ourselves. Having traveled with them many times and done business on several occasions, most definitely USE this company. They know what they are talking about. They will save you not only MONEY but also time. Please contact me personally if you do not believe this. I am happy to tell you first hand that this company truly is awesome and will make your experience in Italy unforgettable - in a good way, of course!
