Information about Siracusa
Siracusa or as it is more commonly known in English – Syracuse – is one of the most visited cities of Sicily. Such interest is explained by the city’s dense tapestry of civilizations and cultures. Thanks to the EU funding most of the ancient building were aesthetically restored which couldn’t but draw even more tourists to the city.
Syracuse was founded by colonists from Corinth in 734 BC and from its very appearance it was considered to be the most beautiful and charming city of the ancient world, rivalling even with the Athens in prestige and power. Under the rule of Dionysius the Elder, the city reached its zenith, attracting luminaries such as Plato, Livy, Archimedes and Aeschylus. It was the era of cultivating the sophisticated urban culture that initiated the appearance of comic Greek theatre. Among the finest sights of the city the superb Archeological Park of Neapolis should be mentioned.
This place truly abounds in valuable historical monuments most of which are seen in the Park’s limits. The Greek theatre of Syracuse is worth seeing too! Initially it was cut directly into the rock, but throughout the centuries it was modified and enlarged. It may come as a surprise for you, but it is still in use – every May and June plays are performed at the theatre.

Latest Tourist Opinion about Travel to Italy:
Alessandro is the best! Alessandro did an archaeological tour with two of my groups in Vendicari Nature Reserve last week and the week prior to that. His English is excellent, his knowledge of archaeology is vast and we learned so much from him! What I can say I loved best is his enthusiasm! He is very animated and engaging. He puts his heart and soul into his work and all who go on his tours will have a great experience. We did! Thank you, Alessandro. I hope to go on more guided tours with you in the future!
