We are in Marzamemi worldwide renowed for its golden beach and for its historical center, a romantic Sicilian village nowadays with many nice restaurants and shops.
Here there is a paradise on earth: Vendicari (photo, 1 km’s), birds, Greeks, Byzantines, Romans and beaches!
Noto, the Sicilian capital of Baroque style, is 20 kms away.
Catania and Etna volcano are 80 kms away.
Ragusa and Modica are 40 kms away.
Pantalica, Unesco’s is 50 kms away.
If you love adventure, nature and archaeology, here it is the Cava d’Ispica a canyon 20 km’s in lenght full of surprises.
Syracuse (photo, Unesco’s), the strongest town of the past (V b.C.) is 30 km’s away.
