With your local licensed guide and archaeologist, walk through the park of the Neapolis to admire one of the largest of all surviving Greek theatres, a Roman amphitheatre built to allow for gladiators ‘sporting’ activities, which the Greek theater could not accommodate, and the Ear of Dionysius, a huge cavern shaped in a way that gives it surprising acoustic properties. A great many legends are associated with this cave.
In Ortigia, we stop at many important sites such as the ruins of the Apollo temple, the famed Arethusa fountain  and the Piazza del Duomo, certainly one of the most suggestive Italian Baroque piazza. The cathedral structure rests on the fluted columns that pertained to a 5th century B.C.E Greek temple. Strolling the quiet streets of Ortigia, you will revel in front of splendid architectural edifices of Roman, Byzantine, Gothic-Catalan, Norman and Renaissance origins.

    In Siracusa, we were in great hands with Milena. Milena was incredibly knowledgeable and equally personable. She answered countless questions from our little group throughout the tour, and she was helpful in terms of the taxi logistics when we went from the Neopolis area to the other sites. To our surprise, she even toured the Mikveh with us, and then at the end of our tour, she walked us to a restaurant she recommended for lunch. We loved it so much that we went back the next day. Milena’s enthusiasm for the history, cultures, and archeology she covered took our tours to a very high level. Her deep appreciation for the melting-pot aspect of Sicily added tremendous depth to our knowledge—all in addition to her expertise in the more science-based aspects of the sites we saw. Karin L.

Every single word and her magnifying archaeological experience and explanation of each monument and archaeology made my heart stop with so much love, respect and appreciation! I’ m a very emotional person, throughout each word and passionate explanation I was able to travel from the past to nowadays with my heart full of love and joy. Thank you so much. We extremely appreciate. Gisele & Paul
