12 DAYS IN SIRACUSA AND RAGUSA

12 DAYS IN SIRACUSA AND RAGUSA

Siracusa is impressive, solemn, intriguing, with stunning and incredible views on ancient history.

You start from tasting the incredible Sicilian street food wandering in the traditional market of Ortigia and then, if you like, you could have another gastronomic wandering in the lovely Marzamemi, a small village famous in the past for the tuna fishing. You will pass another day on the sea, having a relaxing boat ride along the coastline of Siracusa, admiring the crystal water and having the chance of snorkelling around in the Marine Reserve of Plemmirio. And the active experiences aren’t finished yet: we set for you an exciting biking tour near the archaeological site of Pantalica and an easy trekking in the wonderful Natural Reserve of Vendicari.

Finally, the second part of this adventure: Ragusa, the jewel baroque city! You will be immersed in the amazing gastronomy of this southern part of Sicily: two wanderings discovering traditional recipes and hints of history in Ragusa, Modica and Scicli and then a trekking along the Hyblean coast!

We choose all your accommodation specifically thinking to your need: immersed in the centre of the cities, where you could “breathe” the authentic air of Sicily! And near to everything you should need (from the most important sightseeing to the bakeries), to let enjoy your Travel Experience at its best. And remember: the Local Jack (your guide during the entire holiday), will be there for you every time you should need him/her! Just think him/her as a friend, a local who will let you discover Sicily through his/her own eyes, who will let you see what is hidden to the other travellers.
