Syracuse & Ortygia

6 days

From $2,515

Activity Level:


With a history stretching back almost 3000 years, the city of Syracuse has the rare accolade of being classed as a World Heritage Site in its entirety. At the heart of the ancient city is Ortygia, painstakingly and dazzlingly restored.

We follow in the footsteps of the Greeks, Romans and much later civilizations who landed upon these shores. More than two thousand years later, we can still gaze out over the same harbor and imagine the cool blue waters heaving with triremes. Discover not only Ortygia, but surrounding sites including the Pantalica hills, honeycombed with ancient tombs.

Tour highlights:

  • Relaxing in bewitching Ortygia with its stunning views and piazze
  • Discover Sicilian Baroque architecture in Noto
  • Travel to Piazza Armerina, with its unique array of mosaic floors which have been newly renovated
  • Visit the Temple of Athena incorporated in the modern Cathedral
