Sumptuous Siracusa holidays 2020

Siracusa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a beautiful and ancient city, set in the southeast corner of the Mediterranean island of Sicily. It’s filled with magnificent ruins that attest to its former glory as a powerful Greek city-state, including a spectacular theatre and amphitheatre that form the centrepiece of the Neapolis Archaeological Park. There are more ancient monuments in the charming historic quarter of Ortigia, which sits on a tiny island. Siracusa is a fantastic base for exploring this beautiful region, whether you want to climb Mount Etna, explore Baroque towns like Noto, go hiking over hills draped in olive groves, or simply bask on some stunning and blissfully uncrowded beaches.

Siracusa was once one of the most powerful Greek city-states, and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its magnificent ancient ruins. Many of these, including the spectacular Greek theatre and Roman amphitheatre, are now part of the Neapolis Archaeological Park. The historic quarter of Ortigia, which sits on a tiny island accessed by bridge, is utterly enchanting. Its narrow streets are lined with splendid Baroque palaces and ancient ruins, and the charming squares and filled with fountains and pavement cafés. There are tiny little coves on Ortigia, and dozens more lovely beaches dot the coast around Siracusa. There are lots of fantastic day trips, from climbing Mount Etna to exploring the picture-postcard Baroque town of Noto – also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Beaches

Beaches

There are some tiny rocky coves on Ortigia, Siracusa’s historic quarter, but the best beaches are found just outside the town. Arenella has a lovely sandy beach, which is shallow enough for kids to splash about in safely. It has lots of facilities including sun beds and parasols, along with a good beach bar for drinks and snacks. Continuing south, Ognina has some delightful little rocky coves, which have few facilities but are blissfully uncrowded. Fontane Bianche is a popular little resort, which has a long sandy beaches with plenty of facilities. Some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in Sicily are found in the Vendicari nature reserve, about a 30-minute drive from Siracusa.
