Philosopher Cicero once described Syracuse as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all." A powerful city-state of ancient Greece, Syracuse now is the capital of the eponymous Italian province on the eastern coast of Sicily. A pleasant town where the ancient times meet the modern age, Syracuse features a rich Greek history, culture, amphitheaters, and architecture. The birthplace of prominent mathematician Archimedes, this 2,700-year-old city is listed as a World Heritage Site. The historic central area includes several monuments and archeological sites, representing Greek, Roman, and Baroque architecture. Try to explore the region surrounding Syracuse, which offers world-famous cuisine as well as bicycling, hiking, sailing, and scuba diving.
