About the location

Holidays in Syracuse are an immersive voyage of discovery through the ages. Situated on the south Eastern coast of Sicily and surrounded by the Ionian Sea, Syracuse is one of the most important towns in Italy for its architecture, monuments and art. From ancient Greek origins, the history of the town spans the Roman Empire and successive Saracen, Norman and Spanish invasions. Today, the peaceful atmosphere, with its natural beauty, stunning coastline and historical diversity, will seduce you too. The town is an ideal base for couples and families with a passion for cultural travel.

Under the Sicilian sun, retrace ancient civilisations through the flagstone paved streets lined by warm stone buildings, where unique statues and evocative relics are to be found around every corner. Take advantage of the slow pace of life and take the time to check out the inspiring range of restaurants, shops, bars and street markets. This maritime town, tracing nearly 3000 years of history, provides an unforgettable backdrop to an inspirational and fascinating holiday at any time of year.
