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 :-)

I had a great time with Andrea as he took me on an historical march through Siracusa and other parts of Sicily. One learns why this island is such a great place to visit and why its people are so friendly and curious about visitors. Andrea's tour allowed me to remember my time in Sicily, almost 20 years ago, and brought back memories of ruins, and great food, citrus aromas and volcanoes! Andrea speckled his slides with pictures of Sicilian cuisine. I learned a lot and loved having my memories jostled. I must go back to Sicily! Thank you, Andrea and Eternity Tours!
Beautiful tour and city
I think this was my favorite tour so far... Andrea starts with the history of the Mediterranean to set the stage for the story of Syracuse. I knew there was a major Greek settlement, but Andrea explains all of the other cultures who ruled the area and how the layers of their cultures are part of the city today. The Moors, the Arabs, the Etruscans, the Phoenecians, and more. Even how so many of the crops were imported by these different cultures and how they are part of the fabric and economy of Sicily today. The Greek theater and buildings are stunning, lending their ancient magic to the city and to the vibrancy of the island of Sicily , making me wish I were there.
