Syracuse, Ortygia and Noto Full-Day Tour from Catania

1. Syracuse, Ortygia and Noto Full-Day Tour from Catania

Learn the ancient history of Sicily on a full-day sightseeing tour that takes in the archaeological park of Neapolis, home to the majority of classical monuments of Greek and Roman Syracuse. Following a pick-up from your accommodation in Catania, transfer to the ruins of Syracuse, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During a guided walk you will discover many old Roman streets, as well as monuments such as the Greek Theatre, whose cavea is one of the largest ever built by the ancient Greeks. Near the Greek Theatre, you will see the latomie, including the limestone cave known as the “Ear of Dyonisius,” as well as the Christian Church of San Nicolò ai Cordari. Admire the Amphitheatre of the Roman imperial age, and more. Then, continue to Ortygia Island to experience the historic heart of Syracuse. Located at the park’s eastern end, and separated by a narrow channel, Ortygia is filled with Greek temples, Christian churches, and Arabian streets. Visit the Arethusa fountain and Piazza del Duomo, where the baroque palaces, such as Beneventano del Bosco Palace and Senate Palace are among the most beautiful in Sicily. After lunch (own expense), go to the small town of Noto, noted for its unique style of Sicilian Baroque architecture, and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. Wander the open air museum and beautiful Corso Vittorio Emanuele to admire the many palaces and churches that, grouped together, are known as the “Stone Garden.”

What people are saying about Noto

Pick up and return on time. Corona-proof in these times because 2 mini-vans for 10 people in total, wearing masks inside all the time. Professional and friendly guides. Tour partly guided, partly with free time, enough time for questions and lunch.

It was great to see a few different places. Nando was friendly and informative. It’s quiet this year so we ended up having a private tour. I recommend it!

Not is beautiful, well worth a visit to slowly stroll the streets and enjoy the atmosphere. The ruins are magnificent.

It was a great trip. You get to see a lot in a day. Salvo was a great guide.

Excellent the guide
