Syracuse

— 10 nights

Pearl of the Mediterranean

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Riserva Naturale Orientata Cavagrande del Cassibile. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Syracuse: Scicli (Piazza Busacca, Municipio di Scicli, &more), Lido di Noto (Spiaggia di Eloro & Lido di Noto) and Modica (Mulino ad Acqua - Museo Cavallo d'Ispica & Church of San Pietro). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Isola delle Correnti, step into the grandiose world of Azienda Agricola Pupillo, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di San Giovanni Alle Catacombe, and examine the collection at L'Angolo del Papiro.

To find where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Syracuse tour planner.
