Description of the excursion
The tour will begin with a visit to the Archaeological Park of Neapolis, which houses most of the monuments of Greek and Roman Syracuse.
It is the most representative area of the ancient Greek city with vast green areas from which, through an avenue traced on the ancient Roman road, you can access the main archaeological monuments: the Greek Theater, still used for classical theatrical performances, the Roman amphitheater, the Latomia del Paradiso with the Ear of Dionysus and the Grotta dei Cordari, the Ara di Ierone and the Church of San Nicolò ai Cordari.
You will continue with the visit of Ortigia, the soul of Syracuse: between Greek temples and Christian churches, Swabian, Aragonese and Baroque palaces, courtyards, Arab alleys, shops, modest houses and beautiful squares, you will visit the splendid Aretusa Fountain and the Baroque Piazza Duomo surrounded by noble palaces.
After lunch (not included in the price) the tour will continue with a visit to Noto, an absolute jewel of Sicilian Baroque, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The town of Noto is a true open-air museum, where it will be extraordinary to walk along the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and admire the numerous palaces and churches that have earned it the nickname of "stone garden".
