The tour Syracuse from Catania will give you the opportunity to get in touch with some of the most fascinating archaeological sites and monuments of Sicily. The first stop on this tour will be the Neapolis Park, the most important archaeological site in the area. During your journey you can admire the Roman Amphitheater, the greek theater and the famous Ear of Dionysius, a big cave full of legends.
But Syracuse offers amazing surprises and, in fact, we will discover the underground Catacombs of St. John, who had a burial ground in Roman times, in what the Greeks had used as underground aqueducts, or the Hypogeum, a network of tunnels dug into the limestone to over twenty meters below ground level. But Syracuse is increasingly with the temple of Apollo, which is the oldest Doric temple in Western Europe, or the Fontana Aretusa which was an inspiration for John Milton, Alexander Pope and William Wordsworth. All included.
