Full description

Experience the beauty of Sicily on a full-day tour from Catania. Explore the ancient ruins in Syracuse, the charming fishing village of Marzamemi, and the Island of Ortigia.

Meet in the center of Catania and travel to Marzamemi, a small fishing village looking out over the Ionian Sea. Visit the ruins of the Tonnara, an ancient structure used to catch tuna.

See an abundance of colors, flowers, and old buildings as you stroll down Piazza Regina Margherita. Take a break by the sea on the "Litorale Spinazza", which can be reached on foot from the Borghetto.

Continue to Ortigia, a little island that contains the oldest part of the historic center of Syracuse, starting from the Greek period. Visit the wonderful Fountain of Arethusa, Piazza Duomo, as well as the Christian churches and the Baroque Palaces.

Finally, go to the Neapolis Archaeological Park in Syracuse. Discover an open-air museum containing evidence from various eras, from the protohistoric age to the late ancient and Byzantine periods.

I can only recommend this tour! Having a good mixture of man-made and natural beauty to marvel at was great and Francesco the driver was a gem! The audioguide unfortunately didn't work but I can't complain since I ended up having a private tour in the end. I really enjoyed seeing Marzamemi and this was the only tour I found that included a seaside town stop.

No air conditioning on the bus. Syracuse: archaeological site at a run. Nothing to do nothing to see in Marzamemi and 1/2 hour early return. Bad trip. And way too expensive!

For what I paid was not worth it. We took to the places and left us without any explanation or historical review. They only took a grab of much importance on the bus.
