Siracusa is a city on the eastern coast of Sicily and the capital of the province that brings its same name. It was once described by Cicero as the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all.
It is a pleasant town, with plenty to occupy tourists for at least a couple of days and also a good area for seeing the south-eastern corner of Sicily, including the Baroque towns of Ragusa and Noto, several archaeological sites, and the lively city of Catania. It has a well known archaeological zone and a historic centre on the island of Ortigia.
It is an amazing city of culture and history ready to be explored and savoured. Activities that can be organized include culture & language classes, Sicilian cooking classes & wine tasting, outdoor excursions (hiking, cycling, climbing, sailing, scuba diving), excursions all over the island, workshops (Sicilian puppet making, ceramics, photography, painting).
There are also many night clubs along the coastline on the Alfeo Promenade. Some have dance floors on the beach so that you can dance under the moonlight. In the modern day, the city is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site along with the Necropolis of Pantalica.
