Location information for Syracuse

Introduction

Syracuse is the capital of the Italian province of the same name and an interesting mix of an old center and modern architecture. The old center is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, together with the nearby Necropolis of Pantalica. The city is a good operating base for exploring southeast Sicily.

Population

The city has approximately 125,000 inhabitants.

Location

Syracuse is located on the east coast of the Italian island of Sicily. The old, historical city is situated on an island (Ortygia).

Economy

Syracuse's economy mainly revolves around the large oil refineries near the city and the companies in the surrounding industrial area. The last few years, there's more emphasis on tourism, also because Syracuse is listed as a World Heritage Site. Besides the historical city, tourists are attracted by the various archeological sites nearby. They have also built a marina, Marina di Archimede. Fishing is of less importance, but agriculture in the surroundings isn't insignificant with citrus fruit plantations and vineyards.

Airports

The nearest airport is Catania Airport, over 60 kilometers north of Syracuse. Catania International Airport (officially: Aeroporto di Catania-Fontanarossa) is reachable by rental car via the SS114 and freeway A18.

Public Transport

The old city on the island of Ortygia is largely a pedestrian zone, but also small enough to explore by foot. Syracuse has good public bus transport, including a bus (line 26) to the Necropolis. There's also a train station with connections to Messina, Taormina and Catania.

Traffic and Parking

The few parking places in the old city are almost all reserved for locals. To visit the old center it's best to park your rental car on one of the parking lots just outside the center. There are sufficient parking facilities on the Talete parking lot (free during the day; € 1,00 per night) and in the Molo San Antonio, the street just before the bridge to Ortygia.

Hotels

With Syracuse being a World Heritage Site and growing tourism, the number of accommodations in and around the city has significantly increased. This doesn't mean there are now sufficient bed & breakfasts, guesthouses and hotels. We advise booking your hotel room in Syracuse well in advance. The city has a five-star hotel; cheaper accommodations can be found around the post office and near the Temple of Apollo. Real budget accommodations are concentrated near the train station.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
