Explore the stunning ancient city of Syracuse from home on our virtual tour
duration 1.5 hours
Join Through Eternity guide Andrea for an immersive virtual journey to the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful and fascinating cities: Syracuse. Impossibly perched on the rocky island of Ortigia jutting into the Mediterranean, the ancient origins of Syracuse extend far back into the mists of time, when it was founded by the Corinthians in the 8th century BC. A truly spectacular place, the landscape of the Sicilian city is one of magnificent palaces and churches, winding alleys and wonderful art. From Caravaggio’s final masterpiece to jaw-dropping scenery and a culinary tradition that’s second to none, Syracuse is a city whose glorious past lives on today in its vibrant streets. Join Andrea today and discover why Cicero described the Syracuse as "the most beautiful city ever built by the Greeks”!

Hi I’m Andrea! A native of Naples, I’ve lived in the Campania region of Italy all my life, and I have a deep love for its art, archeology, music, architecture, cuisine, natural beauty and - of course - its people. I have shared this world with many, many visitors over the years,showcasing the vast range of this wonderful place. When I was 14 years old I started working as an actor in theatres, and this plays a central role in how I communicate on my tours today - I always try to put something theatrical into everything I do :-)
The world of travel might be on hold right now, but just because we're all staying at home to help the world overcome a common enemy doesn't mean we have to put our wanderlust on the back burner. Frustrated with not being able to get our travel fix, we decided to transform our award-winning tours into immersive virtual experiences, meaning you can still explore Italy’s spectacular archaeological sites and jaw-dropping museums from the comfort of your own home.

Another incredible virtual tour in another gorgeous city! Andrea is so personable and his knowledge and passion for his tours is obvious in his presentations. His mini crash course of Syracuse is thorough yet remarkable how he can cover so much information in a short period of time! The visuals are extremely helpful in processing the vast amount of history. Until travel fully commences, this is the next best thing to actually being there! Thank you, Andrea and TE!
We were delighted. Andrea was the perfect tour guide. After chatting with us for the first five or ten minutes we were off to a delightful hour. His knowledge of Sicily was impressive. He was so entertaining and made us feel like he knew us He charmingly integrated much of our initial conversation with him into his comments about Sicily. It could not have been a better virtual experience. Because Andrea was so thoroughly enjoyable, would it be possible for us to request him for our next tour?
