Due to its unique location on the peninsula of Ortigia, its millennia old history and its blending of Orient and Occident, the town – a UNESCO World Heritage site – is one of Sicily's most interesting sights.

In ancient times, Syracuse had, for centuries, been the most significant town of the world then known. Even Cicero called it the "the greatest and most beautiful of all Greek towns".

Syracuse is located in the southeast of Sicily and made up of the Old Town (Ortigia) and the New Town.  

Ortigia, the "island of quails", is the original core of Syracuse. Baroque palazzi of white limestone, spacious squares and narrow alleys with bars, restaurants and cafes mark out the Old Town’s face.

The cathedral of Santa Maria delle Colonne, which dates from the 7th century BC, rises majestically in the centre of Ortigia.

The semicircular cathedral square is surrounded by grand 17th and 18th century palazzi.

Another 'celebrity' at Syracuse and steeped in legend is Fonte Aretusa, the fresh water spring at the seaside on the peninsula of Ortigia. For the Greeks at the time it was a source of drinking water.

According to legend, goddess Artemis transformed nymph Arethusa into a spring to protect her from lecherous god Alpheios.

The papyrus plants growing from the fountain were the raw material for paper manufacture

Our restaurant tip for Syracuse

"Le Vin de l'Assassin" – a restaurant which combines Mediterranean specialities and French cuisine and serves its guests true culinary delights. Taste the excellent onion soup, the delicious starter puff pastry with aubergines and swordfish or the freshly prepared gilt-head bream, for example.

Address: Via Roma 115, Ortigia Siracusa (Opening hours: daily except Mondays)

Tip market in Ortigia

Mercato di Ortigia is highly recommendable.
The market takes place every morning except on Sundays and offers to its visitors a multi-sensory symphony of clamor, aroma and bustle.

There are grilled peppers and artichokes, various kinds of Indian figs and tomatoes of varied shapes and colors; fish and other seafood are sold from polystyrene containers or buckets. Not to forget the numerous types of cheese made of goat’s, sheep’s or cow’s milk.

Ognina- Idyllic place at the seaside

Ognina is only about 10 km from Syracuse and known for its idyllic location and the variety of its underwater world.

Snorkelers and divers get their money’s worth in the crystal clear water and can get their fill of colorful fish and coral formations.

Access into the sea at the mostly rocky coast is made easier at Ognina by a small section of beach with golden sand.  

At a leisurely pace, fishermen start on their daily tours from Ognina’s landing.

There, you find a bar which is open during the summer months.

Fontane Bianche – Popular seaside resort with a touch of the Caribbean

The beautiful seaside resort of Fontane Bianche is located about ten kilometers south of Syracuse.

Combine a holiday at the beach with a visit to cultural highlights in the southeast of Sicily. It is about 12 km to the Baroque town of Noto, for example, one of the most beautiful towns of Sicily and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The coast at Fontane Bianche is made up of rocky sections with crystal clear water and light golden sandy beaches.

At Fontane Bianche, you find restaurants, grocery stores and bars.
