Our tour starts from Porta Marina in Ortigia (Syracuse) where we will take the bikes. After the bike's setting, we will go toward Piazza Duomo to admire Syracuse's Cathedral. Our second stop will be the Aretusa fountain and then the Maniace Castle. After leaving the massive castle of the Federician era we will go alongside the eastern promenade to see the ancient walls of the Spanish era. Then we will leave the Aretusean Isle through the Umbertinian Bridge and we will reach, almost completely on the bike path, the old Tonnara of Saint Panagia, an old site of tuna fishing and processing active until 1970. During the tour, we will make a short stop at the Basilica of Santa Lucia to see, for those who wish, the "Burial of Saint Lucia", a famous painting made by Caravaggio. After that, returning to the starting point, we will make a short stop to see the Artemide fountain in Piazza Archimede, ending the tour in Ortigia's market.
