The Greek ruins are the highlight of this tour. Still used to represent some important musical, theatrical and cinematic Italian performances. For lunch, you have to try the famous “Pur petti di tonno” (fresh tuna balls with pecorino cheese) and refresh yourself with a cold Almond Milk drink!
Travelled 1st week in Sept 2016. HIghly recommend. Although an early start 0730 pick up from near hotel, the day was well organised and not hectic. This was great for my parents who are a bit slow-paced. The coach was very comfortable, clean and relaxing which made the travelling seem less arduous. Again, a welcome for my parents. Our guide had a great sense of humour. He was ever so friendly with everyone and took time to speak to people personally. For the French tourists, his French was superb! Syracusa is an important place to visit so worth the trip. We had a lovely leisurely lunch on the waterside in Ortygia. In both places you have the option to follow the local guide or roam around at your own pace. There was good amount of time in each place. And we returned to the hotel late afternoon which gave us time to rest/shower/change in our hotel before heading out for another splendid evening in Taormina. The relaxed pace, flexibility, comfort, and friendliness of this trip makes this a great day out and definitely worth the reasonable fees. we all enjoyed it alot. highly recommend
I really enjoyed this tour, especially when we visited Ortyga. We were well looked after on the coach and both guides were really good. I think this was good value for money.
Lovely informative historical day out. Well described by guides on bus and in town and at Archaelogical park.
Transport was excellent. Both guides on our tour were very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining.
We learnt such a lot on the trip and found it very enjoyable.
Great day and our guide was amazing with so much information that brought history to life.
Would definitely recommend this tour. Saw the Greek theater, archeological park and Ear of Dionysius. Spent the afternoon at Ortygia. Saw the Duomo, Piazza, Fountain, and wondered about the quaint streets.

A very enjoyable day trip from Taormina. After arrival in Syracuse, the large group was met with local tour guide, Eva, who did a wonderful job of describing in detail the various points of interest during the tour, first at the Archeological Park, and then at the old city of Ortygia, which is where the city of Syracuse had its beginnings in the 6th Century BC during Greek domination.
the guide was very informative and made the trip very interesting. all the guides on the trips that I took were excellent
Very well organized and informational. Our guides were good, both our escort and local guides were professional. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the ancient sites.
Well organised. The guides were exquisite. Congratulations and many thanks to them.
