Art, history, culture, breathtaking sea and marvellous beaches: all this inevitably enchants its visitors. Syracuse, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a history that encompasses three millennia, from ancient Greece to the Baroque period. Homeland of artists and philosophers, it was the birthplace of Archimedes. Plato visited several times and tried to establish the ideal State of the Republic. In the first century BCE, Cicero described it as “the largest and most beautiful Greek city”.
