Siracusa-Ortigia-Noto Group Tour (from Catania – full day)


The excursion will start with the visit to the Archaeological park of Neapolis (from Greek ‘new city’) that hosts the majority of classical monuments of Greek and Roman Syracuse. It’s the most representative area of ancient Greek city, with large green spaces where walking through an old Roman street you can get many important archaeological monuments: the Greek theatre used for classical performances, Roman amphitheatre, the Latomie with the Ear of Dyonisius and Cordary’s cave, the Ara of Ierone and The Church of San Nicolò ai Cordari. Then, we will visit the Ortygia Island, the heart of Syracuse and among Greek temples, Christian churches, Arabian Streets, important old palaces, we will visit The Arethusa Source and theDuomo square, (with its irregular shape, is surrounded by some beautiful baroque palaces, the Beneventano del Bosco Palace, the Senate Palace and the Saint Lucia church). After lunch (that is not included), the tour continues by visiting Noto, a unique town for its Sicilian Baroque style, which was declared to be a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The town of Noto is a true ‘open air museum’ where it will be possible to enjoy the walk along the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and admire the many palaces and churches that are together known as the ‘stone garden’.
