  • Catania: Syracuse, Ortigia and Noto Transfer and Tour

    1. Catania: Syracuse, Ortigia and Noto Transfer and Tour

    After being picked up from your accommodation in Catania, visit the magnificent Neapolis in Syracuse. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, this famous archaeological park houses a Greek theatre. With the help of a guide sheet, admire the impressive ruins of this stunning site.  After visiting Syracuse, journey to the lovely peninsula of Ortigia.

Take in this idyllic cathedral, before stopping off at the Fountain of Arethusa, a legendary fresh water spring. For lunch you have the option to enjoy a classic sicilian snack made of Tavola Calda, with water and red wine. Or, if you prefer, you will have 1 hour of free time to have lunch in one of the amazing restaurants in the alleys of the city. Upon reaching Noto, you will exp...

    This could have been a fantastic trip. Our driver/guide was excellent. She made some quick decisions en route when faced with a blockage on the highway. However, the 4x4 was most uncomfortable. There were 7 of us in an 8 seater vehicle. It was very, very hot and the air con did not do the job. If it was blasted out, the driver had to shout out information. As it was, at each stop, we were in a state of heat exhaustion. The 2 people in the back row had even less access to air than we did in the 2nd row. I cannot recommend this company and their vehicle.

    Our guide was very friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable. The walking tours of Noto and Ortygia were both enjoyable, with about an hour in each to explore on your own. There was no guided tour of Neopolis, but it was easy to visit the ruins on our own. Our tour group was a mixture of Italian and English speakers, and our guide did a good job ensuring that both language groups received the same experience: I'm sure it was challenging, but he did it well.

What people are saying about Noto

Special thanks to Gioele, who took care about us during the whole trip and gave us all the important information about all places that we visited. He was very professional and made a very nice company to us, even though it was very hot weather. Thank you very much.

Pick up and return on time. Corona-proof in these times because 2 mini-vans for 10 people in total, wearing masks inside all the time. Professional and friendly guides. Tour partly guided, partly with free time, enough time for questions and lunch.

It was great to see a few different places. Nando was friendly and informative. It’s quiet this year so we ended up having a private tour. I recommend it!

Great tour. We were just 3 people and I was glad that the tour wasn't cancelled. Thanky you Carlos.

It was a great trip. You get to see a lot in a day. Salvo was a great guide.
