Syracuse: Pearl of the Mediterranean (guided tour)

By Italo Giordano (archeologo e tour guide)
A walk through the beauties of a city that has known moments of enormous glory in the past that reverberates in its buildings. In the Archaeological Park of Neapolis you can admire the imposing ruins of the Greek city where there are buildings carved into the rock like the ancient Greek Theater, the Roman Amphitheater and the Altar of Hieron II. But it will be very pleasant to spend time inside the Latomia del Paradiso, an ancient stone quarry, where you will be amazed by the grandeur of the Ear of Dionysius. Moving to Ortigia with your own cars, the visit will be conducted through the narrow alleys of the historic center of Siracusa where the history of the Mediterranean is preserved. The ruins of the Temple of Apollo and the beauty of Piazza Duomo with its admirable Cathedral will drag us into the excitement of a journey through history. Simply rich, dense and exciting.

Italo is an engaged archeologist and a great storyteller. Ancient Greek ruins were becoming alive in our imagination during the excursion.
