We will meet you at your hotel at 09:00 am to return at 5:00 pm. We recommend using a local tour guide to thoroughly enjoy these antique villages.
Marzamemi is a fishing village in the Siracusa’s Southern coast. In the second half of the 19th century, a harbour was built near the already existing tuna-fishery and the 1600’s villa of the Princes of Villadorata. The Tonnara is a complex where the activity of fishing, processing the fish and selling it took place. Marzamemi is a small fishing village built around the Tonnara. The main attraction is the square where you will find the two churches and the old fishermen's houses, some of which are transformed into ice creame shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy a drink before lunch in the square, it's absolutely fantastic.
There are some nice restaurants and shops with local food/fashion and books about sicily and its history. There is also a shop that produces many local tuna specialties such as salted tuna, ‘bottarga’ (salted tuna fish eggs), tuna sausage and many more local products. Sometimes musicians play in the square and there is a quaint little market as well. Local people come down to the square with a chair and if their lucky they have a spot to enjoy the evening and the breeze. It is really an amazing little place with the beach only a 10 minute walk away.The sea is crystal clear and the water is so warm you can swim for hours. The tour continues with a visit to the Villa del Tellaro that is very similar to the famous Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina and here we can admire the decorations made entirely of mosaic. The Villa Romana del Tellaro is a Roman villa dating from the late Roman Empire on Sicily in Southern Italy. It is located South of Noto. For lunch we recommend a seaside restaurant in the center of Marzamemi or alternatively a local vinyard with wine tasting of the best Sicilian wines very famous in the area.
