Founded by the ancient Greeks, Syracuse is a city located in the Southeast of Sicily. The visit of Syracuse can be split in two parts: one dedicated to the island of Ortigia, the small and picturesque historical centre connected to the mainland by two bridges, and the other to the vast archaeological site, home to many Greek and Roman remains. The best way to explore Syracuse is on foot. Our guided tour will let you see the places of historic interest and find the best restaurants, bars and food.
