What you'll do

We will meet at the Dionisio bar, inside the souvenir area of the archaeological park of Neapolis, we will buy the entrance tickets together and start the visit.
We will stop at the altar of Hieron II and then we will enter the Latomia of Paradise where we will enter the ear of Dionysius, the spearhead of the Neapolis. This cave will literally leave you speechless thanks to its singular history and the echo inside it. We will admire the largest Greek theater in Sicily and the Roman amphitheater will be our last stop. We will talk about tyrants, gladiators and Archimedes. Did you know that Archimedes was Syracusan, right?

My long experience as an archaeologist expert in classical Greek-Roman archeology and as a licensed tour guide makes me the ideal person to lead you to the discovery of Neapolis, undoubtedly one of the must of Syracuse. My experience as a mother makes me perfectly understand the needs of families on vacation, because they are mine too!
We will buy the entrance tickets to the archaeological park together by skipping the line and then we will be ready for a splendid guided tour. Within a beautiful naturalistic setting I will tell you the anecdotes and stories that have enchanted visitors of all times. From Plato to travelers on the Gran Tour!
