This tour’s one for history fans, because you’ll tick off two of Sicily’s most impressive ancient sights. You’ll kick things off by travelling to Neapolis Archaeological Park in Syracuse, where you can explore 240,000 square metres of ancient ruins. During your visit, you’ll pass a giant 16,000-seater Greek amphitheatre. Afterwards, you’ll head to Ortygia, an old city that’s packed with so many important historical points of interest that the whole place has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your guide will point out some of the main attractions, then you can explore the area at your own pace. The go-to spot’s Piazza Archimede – the water fountain here’s one of the biggest in the city. Plus, the Cathedral of Syracuse is a five-minute walk away. This giant sandstone-coloured building sits on the ruins of a former temple that was built in the 5th century. Inside, you can take a look at the 500-year-old statue of the Virgin Mary that was made by Antonello Gagini, a famous Renaissance-era sculptor.
