Hours passed, and the total was 10.5.
Begin your adventure in Sicily by boarding a luxurious minivan or minibus departing from either Taormina or Giardini Naxos. This exclusive day trip will take you to the top destinations on the island, starting with Siracusa and the charming island of Ortigia. Your expert local guide will lead you on a guided walking tour, providing fascinating insight into the historic center of Syracuse and answering any questions you may have along the way.
Explore the heart of the city and witness the world-renowned landmarks, including the external Cathedral "il Duomo." However, the real treasure lies in the guided visit to Ortigia's historic center while taking your breath away from its beauty. The experience doesn't end there, as the tour leads you to the Syracuse Archaeological Park, which dates back to the 5th century BC, with a rebuild in the 3rd century AD. Brace yourself for the park's centerpiece, the Teatro Greco, a massive amphitheatre that seats 16,000 people, and the Latomia del Paradiso, an ancient quarry that provided the city's building materials, is a must-see.
Included in our tour of Sicily is a delectable pause to sample the region's specialties, an essential component for any day excursion.
The remarkable town of Noto is the ultimate destination on your tour and is widely regarded as one of the most breathtaking locations in Italy, if not the whole of Sicily. Located a little less than 40km to the southwest of Syracuse, you'll be given some free time to explore Noto on your own. You might want to take a leisurely stroll along Corso Vittorio Emanuele and marvel at the beautiful baroque churches and palazzi. What's more, you can also look forward to an unexpected tasting experience before making your way back to Giardini Naxos or Taormina.
