Does Syracuse offer beaches ?

The platform at the Forte Vigliena is where locals go : rocks and wooden platforms surrounded by clear waters. The festival map lists the swimming spots. Don’t forget your swimming costume and your googles.
How to get around ?
Ortygia is 1km2. Walking or renting a bike is the best way to get around. Contact us for bikes.
What to do in Syracuse and in South East Sicily?
Syracuse is rich of a very long history. Its Greek archeological park, its Barocco heritage, its fountains, museums, cathedral and churches are a cure for sore eyes. Wandering around with no destination is also an option and a very good way to spend the time.
Syracuse is a good starting point to visit the South-Eastern part of Sicily : Ragusa, Noto and the Unesco World Heritage Baroccan cities, several archeological sites, the large city of Catania, Etna or Cavagrande for outdoorsy days, and the 3800 m² of mosaics at the Villa Romana del Casale.
