This private walking tour explores Ortygia, the old town center of Syracuse, which is placed on a small island. It is enchanting for its position and fascinating for its 3000 years of history. From Apollo temple, the oldest Greek temple in Sicily, the way leads through picturesque narrow streets to Cathedral Square, where there is the possibility to visit the Catholic church built above an ancient pagan temple. After you will admire the enchanting Fountain of Aretusa near the sea, walk through the less beaten paths of the Jewish Quarter and enjoy southern lifestyle and the colors of the local fish and fruit market.

The private walking tour lasts about 2 hours and crosses the picturesque streets of the old part of Syracuse discovering the traces left by all the different people who governed Sicily. You will meet our guide at the ancient Greek Apollo Temple where he will give you a short introduction about the history of the town. After a short walk you will reach Cathedral Square and be surprised by the magnificent bright limestone buildings: the town hall, Palazzo Beneventano, the bishop's palace and St. Lucy's Church, but most of all the Cathedral itself, the only church still in use today which time ago was a pagan temple. You should not miss to visit its interiors (optional visit, entrance fee not included).

The tour then continues to Aretusa Fountain near the sea. The myth of Aretusa was told by Ovidius and in its clear fresh water grows papyrus which probably was brought here when Archimedes lived in town. The way back leads through the Jewish Quarter to Via Maestranza, the street where the nobility of the town had their pompous homes. On Archimedes Square, the neoclassical Fountain of Diana remembers once more the glorious past of Syracuse. The tour will end at the local fish and fruit market where you can take a breath of local life, colors and scents.

Explore the archaeological museum of Syracuse, the most important of Sicily for its impressive ancient Greek art collection. A professional private guide will lead you through the sectors of the museum explaining the development of Sicilian's history and art from prehistoric times to the heyday of Greek and Roman culture. The 'Paolo Orsi' museum is located in the park of Villa Landolina, not far from the Greek theatre and the Catacombs. Inaugurated in 1988 the 18000 finds of Sicilian's east side found an ideal arrangement in this modern building designed by Franco Minissi.

The walking tour starts at the prehistoric sector of the museum. There, a short introduction will give you an idea about the origins of the island. You will see the first human traces in Sicily which date back to the paleolithic era and the evolution of local cultures through the bronze age ending at the numerous finds of the Pantalica necropolis, an Unesco world heritage site not far from Syracuse.

Entering in the sector B you will discover the history of Greek colonization in Sicily and you will admire incredible masterpieces found in Syracuse: black and red painted pottery, marble sculptures and impressive decorations coming from ancient temples.

This tour will take you to the most famous places of 'Inspector Montalbano,' starting from the first stop, 'Inspector Montalbano's' house, in front of the sea. The Donnafugata Castle, situated in proximity to Santa Croce Camerina, about 12.5 miles (20km) from Ragusa is a major attraction for tourists. Thanks to its scenery, it was the setting of many films. The name of Donnafugata, which is Arabic in origin, is misleading. It does not refer, as first appearances might suggest, to a woman fleeing some tyrannical husband or father, nor to one of the legends lingering in some popular memory. It is a free interpretation and transcription of Ayn as Jafat (meaning Fountain of Health) which, in Sicilian dialect, became Ronnafuata, and so was corrupted to its modem form of Donnafugata.
Ragusa Ibla is a lovely spot with many Montalbano's locations (the restaurants, church, square). Ragusa offers panoramic views of Ibla from its historical center, which is difficult to find nowadays. Walk around tiny streets until Cathedral Square is within reach. The city symbol is S. Giorgio's door next to the beautiful Iblei garden, where there are 3 churches; then Pola square with the beautiful facade of San Giuseppe and Duomo Square with the splendid baroque facade and the neoclassical dome of S. Giorgio. The town of Modica is another famous Montalbano location. Modica is located between two pits of a river bed which was buried in the past century. This Baroque town isn't only famous for its architecture, but also for being the birth place of a Nobel Laureate in literature Salvatore Quasimodo and for its famous Modica chocolate. Scicli, another beautiful Baroque town, is the setting of Montalbano's Police station and cemetery. The tour ends in the late afternoon, when we will come back to pick-up point.

An unforgettable cooking class in Ortigia, Unesco site in Sicily.

There is plenty for tourists to take in at the Ortigia market in Syracuse, Sicily: the distinctly southern Italian hum of the crowd; spices and vegetables so diverse they could color a rainbow and the calm blue sea in the distance. But just wandering around this site, where Archimedes is said to have once helped the Greeks fight the Romans, and buying a few peaches is not the sort of authentic culinary experience that many visitors seek. That is where chef Lele steps in. He leads gastronomy-focused travelers around to teach them how to shop and then prepare delicious Sicilian food.

The ingredients you buy, will be brought back to the kitchen to cook your meal. The menu varies according to seasonal products, here is an example: Sicilian eggplant meatballs, spaghetti with zucchini and mint, tuna with caramelized onions (an old Sicilian recipe), and spinach.
