Siracusa, Sicily

May 27, 2019 - Sea Cloud


It’s breakfast time when we arrive in Siracusa, one of the most beautiful cities in Sicily and our last stop in the country. Sea Cloud is docked along the canal that divides the new city from the island of Ortigia, the original historic center of this powerful Greek colony of the past. Everybody is excited to go ashore to see the Greek theater, the Ear of Dionysus, the colorful market, and to stroll in Ortigia, where we can taste our last Italian gelatos.
