Walking through the charm and the myth of Magna Grecia.
The island of Ortigia, the historical center of the city, represents the most ancient and suggestive part of Syracuse. In getting lost among the typical narrow streets of the place you will come across the remains of temples, squares, palaces and churches without forgetting the charm of the Jewish quarter.
The beautiful Piazza del Duomo with its jewel-like Cathedral, the Church of Santa Lucia which houses a painting by Caravaggio and the Fountain of Arethusa are some of the recommended unforgettable destinations.
The archaeological park of Neapolis is an open-air museum that tells the story of the city from prehistoric times to the Byzantine period. Here you can find the Greek Theatre, which is still the stage of extraordinary clas-sical representations during the months of May and June; the Roman Amphitheatre, the Orecchio di Dionisio (ancient prison for slaves) and the Latomie della Neapolis, that are stone quarries used to build the city.
The island of Ortigia, the old town of Syracuse, can be reached in just 15 minutes by car from Donna Coraly Country Hotel.
