Description

Siracusa is one of the most beautiful towns in Sicily and on this private day tour, we visit Sicily's stunning coastline and the crown jewel, the historic centre of Siracusa with a local English speaking guide.
 
In the morning, we recommend we leave at 09:00 AM and we will pick you up from your hotel or villa to being our drive down the southern part of the Island - enjoy a very special introduction to the Sicilian coastline en-route.
 
It takes about 1.5 hours to get to Siracusa, as we  pass the "Piana of Catania", the coast line of the Ionic sea and Iblei mountains, arriving in Siracusa.
 
More than any other modern city in Sicily, Syracuse manifests a visible continuity from its ancient Greek past, both historical and mythological. We will stroll, upon our arrival, the open local fish and fruits market situated in the historical centre. We then visit the archaeological area of Neapolis with is Greek theatre, the Roman amphitheatre and Latomia del Paradiso (with its Dionysius Hear) and the "Ara of Hyeron". We will arrive at the 'Ortigia Island', the heart of the city and we will stroll along the ancient narrow streets, which still keep the Medieval influence, before arriving at the Duomo square, one of the city highlights. This Duomo was built above a Greek Temple, which holds more than 2.500 years of history. It is possible to visit one of the more charming spot of Ortigia, the "Arethusa fountain" with its Papyrus plants, overlooking the Ionic sea.
We can suggest and stop, at your convenience time, in a local Sicilian restaurant to let you enjoy local dishes
 
Please note that the driver cannot take you inside the archeological area or inside churches so if you have particular interesting in archaeology and history and wish to enjoy a walking tour with a licensed guide in Syracuse, we can reserve it as extra.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
