Philosopher Cicero once described Syracuse as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." A powerful city-state of ancient Greece, Syracuse now is the capital of the eponymous Italian province on the eastern coast of Sicily.You've now added Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Modica (Sotto San Pietro, Cathedral of St. George, &more), Noto (Chiesa San Domenico, Chiesa Santa Chiara, &more) and Ragusa (Museo del Duomo, Ragusa Ibla, &more). The adventure continues: step off the mainland to explore Ortigia, stroll through Spiaggia Fontane Bianche, make a trip to Isola delle Correnti, and explore the fascinating underground world of Cavagrande del Cassibile.
