Siracusa is a window into the ancient history of the Mediterranean and Europe. Its vast archeological site, on the edge of the modern city, is a rare treasure of temples, amphitheatres and an ancient castle. The island of Ortygia, a labyrinth of charming ancient and medieval streets, was a center of Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Judaic civilization.
