More than any other modern city in Sicily, Syracuse manifests a visible continuity from its ancient Greek past, both historical and mythological. Visit the archaeological area of Neapolis with is Greek theatre, the Roman amphitheatre and Latomia del Paradiso (with its Dionysius Hear) and the “Ara of Hyeron”. In ‘Ortigia Island’, the heart of the city you can stroll along the ancient narrow streets, which still keep the Medieval influence, before arriving at the Duomo square, one of the city highlights. The Cathedral, built above a Greek Temple, holds more than 2.500 years of history. Visit “Arethusa fountain” with its Papyrus plants, overlooking the Ionic sea. The old quarter of Siracusa known as Giudecca, has some important buildings of the late medieval period, like Palazzo Lanza and Montalto with their typical Chiaramonte style.
