Plemmirio Marine Area
Nature and history combine in the marine depths of the protected marine area of the Plemmirio, just a few kilometres to the south of Syracuse, an ancient city in Magna Grecia, famous all over the world for its immense archaeological, artistic and cultural heritage. The Plemmirio Marine Area includes the sea around the Penisola della Maddalena, the southern continuation of the bay from Porto Grande in the town, following the coast for about 10 kilometres with its inlets, gorges, rocks and bays. The crystalline waters and extraordinary rocky sea bed, abounding in a wide variety of marine life, have made the Plemmirio a favourite with scuba divers, while the fascinating grottos and caves and underwater architecture are a real marine paradise. Ideal location for a holiday in Sicily, to discover the unforgettable beauty of this fascinating corner of the Mediterranean, once witness to the fleets of Phoenician, Greek and Roman ships on route to Syracuse. The Plemmirio marine area still preserves treasures from various periods and civilisations that make diving even more magical and special, but is also worth visiting on land. The coastal footpaths are ideal for walks, enjoying the scenery of Mediterranean maquis and dwarf palms and seawatching. Get ready for your next holiday in Sicily. Treat yourself to a villa holiday and discover the Plemmirio Marine Area wonders!
