The Feminine City


A breathtaking tour of the Archeological park and the ancient Island of Ortigia.
Syracuse is divided in two parts: the island Ortygia is the oldest quarter of the city, it has been inhabited without interruption from the 10th - 9th centuries BC to the present day.
The other part of the city is located on the mainland with four suburbs: Acradina, Eipoli, Tiche and Neapolis. It is here that we find the breathtaking Archeological park.
Syracuse's Ortigia was founded in 8th Century by Archia from Corinth. The Delphic Oracle told him about this brilliant location with its perfect position to control the island of Sicily and out across the Ionian Sea.

Itinerary

I am so proud to show you my female city, the city I was born in, Syracuse with the still standing, Temple of Athena, the fresh water spring of Aretusa, and I would like to talk with you about S. Lucia, our patron Saint.
We will see also the Temple of Apollo, a painting by Caravaggio and we'll walk around all the narrow streets that are one the most surprising and exciting things in the city.

We usually start with the Archeological park of the Neapolis, I will show you the most important and largest Greek Theatre in Sicily and in Magna Grecia built in 5th Century BC, the cave with the Ear of Dionysus and one of the biggest altars in the World.
We'll then visit with the biggest Roman amphitheatre in Sicily. After a little stop in a bar to take refreshments, we'll continue the tour on the Island of Ortigia.
In Ortigia, I'll show you the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, the Cathedral built on the still standing Temple of Athena, and finally, we'll visit the fresh water spring of Aretusa.
