Spend as much time as you like in each destination and see the sights that interest you the most! This is a flexible vacation package.

Located on the south eastern coast of the Italian island of Sicily, Syracuse is the capital of the province of Syracuse and offers a myriad of ancient attractions including the Greek Theatre, the Temple of Apollo, and the Castello Maniance.

Its intriguing history, grand cathedrals and palaces, and divine food and drink provide visitors with endless opportunities for excitement. It is divided into two communities - the old Ragusa Ibla and new Ragusa. Sitting on the hill is Ragusa Superiore, a busy workaday town with grid-pattern streets and all the characteristics of a modern provincial capital, while etched into the hillside further down is Ragusa Ibla (old town). This sloping area of narrow alleyways, grey stone houses and baroque palazzi on handsome squares is Ragusa`s historic center and it`s quite magnificent.

Known as a bridge between the East and West, thanks to its geographic location on the northwestern shore of Sicily, this Italian city is the island`s center of tourism. Travelers will discover plenty of historic and cultural attractions in Palermo - the result of a long and dramatic history of conquest.
