Description

Daily Excursions from Catania Private tour of: Syracuse - Ortigia - Noto in English, Spanish, and Italian. Departure at 8:30 AM from Catania, with prior pickup from your hotel. If the hotel is located in a restricted traffic area, we will meet at the nearest meeting point. We will head to Syracuse, the most important Greek colony in Sicily. Upon arrival, we will stop for 90 minutes to admire the monuments of the ancient Mediterranean at the Archaeological Park of Neapolis. The park, now a protected oasis, is immersed in a natural setting with unique monuments: The Ancient Theater - The Ear of Dionysius - The Cordari Cave - The Roman Amphitheater - The Altar of Hiero II - The Paradise Quarry. The visit inside the park is individual and autonomous with the purchase of a personal entrance ticket. After spending 90 minutes for the visit, we will head towards the oldest part of Syracuse: the island of Ortigia. We will visit the historic market with its scents and colors, the Temple of Apollo, the Fountain of Diana, the Cathedral of Maria Santissima, and the Church of St. Lucia. Then we will wander through the alleyways until we reach the Arethusa Fountain, a water mirror inside which grows the ancient plant of 'Cyperus Papyrus.' After a short break to taste local street food, we will head to the town of Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage site and undisputed center of the Baroque style. There we will admire the imposing Palazzo dei Frati Francescani, the Benedictine Friars' Palace, the Cathedral of S. Nicola, the Palazzo Ducezio, and conclude our tour with a visit to what is considered the finest example of Sicilian Baroque: Palazzo Nicolaci. Once the visit is complete, we will return to Catania.
