Great location! We are on the south side of Sicily, between: the natural reserve of Vendicari (2 km's), one of the Sicilian masterpieces, where nature, archaeology and landscapes give the visitor a great experience; and Capo Passero, the Southern cape of Sicilian island.
The fine and golden sandy beach extends for several kilometers.
We are at around 20 km’s away from Syracuse, the wonderful and powerfull town of the past (V b.C.). In Syracuse we can admire many impressive monuments of the past as, for instance, the Greek theatre, the Orecchio di Dionisio, the temple of Athena, whose columns, presently, are incorporated inside the Duomo, as aisles and the archaeological museum Paolo Orsi, the biggest and among the most important in the world.
Worth a visit also the museum of Papyrus.
Ortigia is the downtown of Syracuse and is a little island linked to the mainland through two bridges. It’s a unique place, nice and full of life and with a great outdoor market.
Piazza Duomo is the hearth of Ortigia but don’t forget to visit the fonte Aretusa (where still now Papyrus grows), and to have a walk along the promenade.
15 km’s away here it is the capital of Baroque style in the world: Noto.
Another great naturalistic site is Cavagrande del Cassibile (15 km’s), a canyon with lakes, gorges and many ancient settlements carved on the rock.
Do you want to see 5.000 tombs carved on the rock, an underground river and a lush forest: welcome to Pantalica (Unesco's), 50 km's away
Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe (3.300 sqm) is 90 km’s away.
Just a last tip: have a pizza or a fish meal in Ortigia.
And don’t forget to taste the granita for breakfast!
