Immerse yourself in Mediterranean history by visiting Siracusa and Sicily. The isle has many proofs of the Magna Graecia and the Arab culture; of the Bizantinian culture and the Swabians, and Sicilian Normans, with the common thread of Jewish culture active and alive up to the 15th century.

The historical, natural, and cultural magnificence of Sicily is witnessed by the recognition of seven Sites as Word Heritage given by UNESCO. Siracusa and Pantalica, the Valle dei Templi (Archeological Area of Agrigento), the Villa del Casale, the Eolie Islands, the Baroque Style of Val di Noto, the Etna mount and Palermo.
