What to see in Syracuse

What to see in Syracuse and throughout eastern Sicily

What to see in Syracuse, why should a tourist ask this? In fact, not many people ask themselves this question, assuming they know, albeit indirectly, the whole history and beauty of the city. But Syracuse is much more! Defined by Cicero as “the largest and most beautiful of all the Greek cities”, Syracuse is a city full of surprises, a unique and fascinating place. Its territory starts from the sea and from the beaches of the east coast and, after a flat stretch, it begins to climb up to reach the Iblei mountains. Since 2005 it is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a source of pride in the Sicilian landscape. It would therefore be useless to make a list of what to see in Syracuse, you would risk to dwell too much and omit something from the list that could win someone’s soul. And then, as already mentioned, every tourist who chooses Eastern Sicily as a destination for their journey already has in mind a list of what to see in Syracuse: from the Greek Theater to the island of Ortigia, from the Archaeological Museum to the splendid golden beaches in which to relax. Secret Siracusa’s philosophy is another! This site was created to let you discover the hidden side of the city, a journey through the places of greatest interest in Syracuse, able to meet the expectations of the tourist who loves to go further. Put aside the classic tourist itineraries that are on the net and let yourself be conquered by something truly unexpected, something that, very often, the inhabitants of Syracuse themselves ignore. But it doesn’t end here! If the charm of Syracuse has conquered you and you want to take them inside for a period of time that goes beyond that of simple vacation, you can organize your event in our locations in Syracuse to make the most important moments indelible. Have a good journey to discover the hidden beauties of Syracuse!
