 Syracuse Free Walking Tou

Syracuse Free Walking Tour

Every Tuesday & Friday afternoon (summer months and Christmas period)

The traffic in Italy and in Sicily particullary is a bit caotic and in the major towns in can be difficult to find a free parking spot near the main monuments. It's the case of Palermo , the main Sicilian town. Parking your car in the old town center can be a real adventure. In Palermo are also often demonstrations on the main streets and near the Norman's palace (it's the seat of the regional parliament) which bring to traffic jams. A lot of the most visited monuments of Palermo are next to each other, so it can be a good idea to park your car and have a little walk for the visit. In this way you can visit the norman palace with its palatine chapel, San Giovanni agli eremiti church and then continue to the cathedral, piazza Pretoria with San Cataldo church, the Martorana and at last the theaters area where it's also possible to visit the oratories of Santa Cita and San Lorenzo with the famous stuccoworks of Serpotta. In the town center a lot of parking spots are reserved for residents with a pass, so pay attention at the traffic signsi. There are also a lot of blue stripes parking spots (where you need a ticket, price varies). At free parking spots, sadly, you will often encounter illegal parkers. Good places to find free parking are near piazza Marina or Foro Italico.

Parking in Syracuse, SicilySyracuse, is only the fourth sicilian town in size in spite of there is often heavy traffic and it's difficult to find a parking place during the rush hours. This article contains some useful suggestions for tourists about parking in Syracuse to visit the main monuments of the Syracuse.

The old town center, Ortygia, is an absolute "must" for those visiting Syracuse. Ortygia is a small quarter located on a little island which is linked with the mainland with three bridges. On the little island, full of charme, are some of the most importan monuments of Syracuse: the cathedral, the Apollo temple, the Aretusa fountain and the Maniace castle. Moving through Ortygia with a car is a bit difficult because of the little roads and the many one way traffic signs. Before entering into the island there are the  ZTL (limited traffic zone) stop lights.
