The little fishing town of Porticello and its beach are popular with locals, or for stunning views of the archipelago, follow the trail to Terme di San Calogero.

Syracuse’s timeless beauty is a delight to behold; a labyrinth of medieval lanes leads to the sparkling blue sea and ancient Greek ruins rising from fragrant lemon orchards are a window into the fascinating history of the Mediterranean.
