Things to know about Syracuse

The mythical Syracuse is a must-visit during your tour of Sicily. Located on the southeast coast of the island, Syracuse has a long history: important center of the Byzantine Empire, it became the capital during the 6th century. Also for this reason, Syracuse is characterized by a great historic heritage, and has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.
 
The most important attractions include the Cathedral, the Church of St. John the Catacombs, the Archaeological Park of Neapolis, the Greek Theatre and several temple ruins of Greek origins.
 
Exploring Syracuse you’ll get mesmerized by the aroma of the citrus groves, main symbol of the city, that characterize its natural landscape.
