Syracuse — 8 nights

Pearl of the Mediterranean

Philosopher Cicero once described Syracuse as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." A powerful city-state of ancient Greece, Syracuse now is the capital of the eponymous Italian province on the eastern coast of Sicily.
Step out of the city life by going to Sampieri and Spiaggia di Punta Cirica. Step off the beaten path and head to Duomo di Siracusa and Chiesa di San Giovanni Alle Catacombe. Get out of town with these interesting Syracuse side-trips: Necropolis of Pantalica (in Pantalica), Spiaggia di Randello (in Scoglitti) and Suore Adoratrici Del Ss. Sacramento (in Scicli). Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Parco Marino del Plemmirio. The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Teatro Greco, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa San Paolo, identify plant and animal life at Riserva Naturale Orientata Cavagrande del Cassibile, and see the interesting displays at Mulino ad Acqua - Museo Cavallo d'Ispica.
