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.
Monastero del San salvatore and Farmacia Vindigni will appeal to museum buffs. Visit St. Nicholas Cathedral and Corso Vittorio Emanuele III for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Noto (Palazzo Nicolaci, Chiesa Santa Chiara, & more), Avola (Cavagrande del Cassibile & Spiaggia di Gallina) and Tonnara di Marzamemi (in Marzamemi).
