Syracuse is a very old place that has already been conquered by many peoples and kept quite long. The old town itself is located on a peninsula that were once divided by a wide strait that today there are only round 20 m separates the old town from the mainland. However, the old town has its own fresh water wells, making the island could always take care of herself. The well is still there and the water still runs well. Surrounded by a city wall are many old buildings, some built by the Greeks, temples available. The Romans later reconstructed the temple in churches, but the pillars of the temple are still visible well today. Within the old town is a street market. There are few tourists in Syracuse and mostly Italians.
