The Sicily region
Syracuse, the most ancient and magnificent of all Mediterranean cities, and former capital of the Magna Graecia, owes its unique charm to the succession of invading civilisations that have conquered it. It is a true melting pot of ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, Norman, Byzantine and Spanish cultures and combines all their styles, tastes and scents.
In every corner of the city traces of these ancient civilizations can be seen. A visit to Syracuse is like a journey in time and through history. Added to which is the wonderful coastline and delightful surrounding countryside. You will have the chance to mix art, history, nature and fine food with our warm Sicilian hospitality. As a visitor to Siracuse, you should first see around the historic city, concentrating on the island of Ortigia, before visiting some of the many nearby sites: (including the baroque marvel of the city of Noto - a Unesco world heritage centre - the world-famous archaeological sites of Augusta and Palazzolo Acreide, the nature reserves at Vendicari and Cavagrande, the prehistoric site of Pantalica, etc.)
If you care to venture a little further, visit the beautiful city of Taormina (beloved of D H Lawrence and many other English writers and artists), the ceramics of Caltagirone, the villa at Casale di Piazza Armerina, the baroque splendours of Modica and Ragusa (where you should try the famous cuisine), the nightlife of Catania, the splendid landscape around Alcantara and, of course, the awe-inspiring heights and lave-flows of Mt Etna. Finally, the nearby coastline offers many wonderful opportunities for sea bathing in a warm and crystal-clear sea.
The beach of Fontane Bianche is a very famous beach with a sea that is very characteristic because of its shallow ground and its lukewarm water during the summer months.
The sea is so crystal clear and pure that you can even perceive the tiny fish that use to swim near the shore.
The beaches of Fontane Bianche are both free and private.
In the private beach sections you can rent chairs and umbrellas and there are several cafés, restaurants and services. The free sections of Fontane Bianche are quite spacious and easily accessible. You can also find here several cafés, restaurants and toilets.
You can also find beautiful cliffs in Fontane Bianche which are particularly suitable for those who like to protect their privacy. This is the ideal place for diving enthusiasts and for everyone who wants to spend a calm holiday.
Of course there are no shops or cafés or other in the isolated places.
Fontane Bianche which is 7 miles away from Syracuse, is a characteristic holiday destination with a diameter of ca. 2miles.
On the way you find little shops, like Grocery stores, butcher shops, an Agip gas station, tobacco shops, a newsagent and not to forget the (Cuban) café that is famous for the best ice-cream in all of Fontane Bianche and Syracuse.
The Plemmirio, nature reserve, which offers its guests the ideal place to admire many different fish-, starfish-, and sea urchin species.
