Full description
Imagine the Greek tragedies in the largest Greek theater of Sicily and poke your head in the cave called Dionysian ear where the prisoners' every whisper was brought to the surface by its acoustics. Stroll down the cobbled streets of the picturesque old town of Ortigia with its intricate Baroque architecture, the majestic cathedral built on layers of history. All without missing the town's elegant shops and quaint cafes.  This tour starts in the morning and we leave the resorts at 07:30. After 2.5 hrs we arrive at Siracuse where we will visit Siracuse's archaeological site. The guide will take you on a 90-minute tour before we continue to Ortigia- the old town of Siracuse. There the guided tour continues for another 90 minutes. After this you will have 2 hrs free time at your disposal to wander around the town of Siracusa or maybe have a nice meal? Around 15.30 we will leave Siracusa and return to the hotels, where we arrive about 2 hrs later.
