  • Our voluntary guide Giusy pointed out with passion all the history of the underground galleries and more! It's worth it! Recommended for anyone visiting Syracuse!

  • A simple walk in Syracuse, but meaningful, if you think that that place was a refuge during the bombings of World War II.

  • The entrance is located in Piazza Duomo, is not very visible from a distance for which the tourist can not seize it. Is not much publicized and it's a shame because the place is well worth a visit. Descend into the tunnels (very large so don't bother even to those who have slight problems with enclosed spaces) with the Guide (essential to accompany you to understand what you are seeing). Underground spaces are used at the time of the war to shelter tunnel, but much older age in fact along the way you will see wells in Greek times. The tunnels start from below Piazza Duomo (the highest point in Ortigia) and reaching the Boardwalk and that's where you come out at the end of the visit. Extremely interesting. Paltry 5 euros ticket price. Opening the site is seasonal (April 15 to October 15 for the 2017). Not to be missed for those who love the views.

  • On the square and just before the Duomo is a small entrance to the Ipogeo. It is a lovely place that has been set out to showcase moments of history and culture including a lot of items from the Ancient Greek Theatre that is in Siracusa and the shows that were live in it.
  • to visit if you are in the area ... a beautiful location in ortigia.

  • It's really impressive to know that the city's population shelter during the air raids of World War II, as you see the images taken in the shelter during the war.
