“Monuments and archeological sites situated in Syracuse are the finest example of outstanding architectural creation spanning several cultural aspects; Greek, Roman and Baroque. Following on that ancient Syracuse was directly linked to events, ideas and literary works of outstanding universal significance.” With this words, the committee of Unesco decides in 2005 to insert Syracuse as a world heritage site.
This city is maybe the most important site to visit in Sicily if you want to see the real importance of the Greek period (VII B.C.). Many historians tell us that in the period of maximum expansion, Syracuse counted more than one million of citizens; This incredible number, awarded Syracuse a very cool nickname that we want to share with you.
