Once the ancient capital of Greece, Sicily’s south eastern port town of Siracusa is a significant archaeological and UNESCO destination with an ancient Greek amphitheater, the Orecchio di Dionisio Cave, Apollo’s Temple and the Teatro Romana ruins. Its historic heart – the tiny island of Ortigia – is joined to the mainland by two bridges and is known for its Baroque palaces and churches and its maze of narrow medieval lanes that converge on the lovely Piazza Duomo and cathedral.
There are a number of city beaches nearby with Ru Frati and its seafront bike path and park making an ideal destination for early morning or sunset ramblings. Further south, the pristine beaches and bays of Fontane Bianche, Cala Flies, Vendicari and the Pachino Marine Reserve offer some of the island’s best. The UNESCO site of Pantalica and the Cavagrande Cassibile reserve are perfect for day trekking, with deep canyons and natural lakes for swimming.
Nearby Noto is also a historic UNESCO World Heritage site with stunning, wall to wall Baroque architecture and is one of the gems in the greater Val di Noto region along with its sister cities of Modica, Ragusa and Scicli, all reachable within an hour or so.
