Wonderful experience to discover the historic Syracuse. Our guide Paolo is excellent and patient especially with our little daughters. We visited the archaeological park. Inside there is the theater and the ear of Dionysus, truly something unique. Then we did the Ortigia tour. Ortigia cannot be explained in words. Local food tasting was also excellent. Thanks Paolo and thanks to Nadia who patiently organized our tour even though we changed the starting point several times.

The Ortigia tour was very interesting. Our guide Paolo was very patient and explained many secrets to us. The visit to the archaeological park was also wonderful. The theater is unique. We concluded the tour with a delicious food and wine tasting. We returned to the hotel satisfied.

Syracuse Archeological Tour and Ortega Island
Marco our private tour guide gave a very knowledgeable and thorough tour of the archaeological park as well as the walk around Ortega Island. Finishing up with the wine tasting and food option. He is an excellent tour guide and a fantastic host. We highly recommend him.

Great historical tour
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had an excellent, in depth tour of the Archaeological Park. The guide was very knowledgeable. The trip through Ortigia was a bit quicker, but the main sites were pointed out. Adding the food/wine pairing was a good choice, as we had a huge charcuterie/cheese plate with 3-4 wine pairings. Delicious.
