Augusta Villa Rentals

Augusta is a town in the province of Syracuse, located on the eastern coast of Sicily (Italy). The city is one of the main harbors in Italy and faces the Ionian Sea. Augusta is on the route between Catania and Syracuse. Accommodations, vacation rentals, condo rentals, villa rentals and apartment rentals facing the ocean have breathtaking views.

The old town is an island, made by cutting an isthmus in the sixteenth century and is connected to the mainland by two bridges. One bridge was built recently (Viaduct Frederick II of Swabia) and the other built when the city was founded and is called the Spanish Gate. Augusta is home to two ports. It is 47km to Catania & 37km from Syracuse.

When planning to stay in one of the beautiful accommodation, vacation rental, villa rental or apartment rental options make sure to miss; the "Castello Svevo", a Swabian fortress built by Frederick II between 1232 and 1242, with a square plan and four corner tower, used in the last two centuries as a prison. The excavation at Megara Hyblaea, an ancient town founded in 728 BC by the Greeks, then destroyed by Gero of Syracuse in 483 BC, rebuilt and again destroyed by the Romans in 213 BC. The excavation at Thapsos, a lively commercial center of the 15th century BC, with relics of the Bronze and Iron Ages, and items coming from Malta and Cyprus.

Syracuse city is notable for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheaters, architecture, and as the birthplace of the preeminent mathematician and engineer Archimedes. This 2,700-year-old city played a key role in ancient times, when it was one of the major powers of the Mediterranean world. Syracuse is located in the southeast corner of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Syracuse next to the Ionian Sea. In the modern day, the city is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site along with the Necropolis of Pantalica. The town has many holiday lodgings and luxury villas to choose from. Accommodation, vacation rental, villa rental and apartment rental options are varied and visitors will be spoilt for choice.

Important sites in and around Syracuse include; the Temple of Apollo, adapted to a church in Byzantine times and to a mosque under Arab rule. The Fountain of Arethusa, in the Ortygia island. According to a legend, the nymph Arethusa, hunted by Alpheus, took shelter here. The Theatre, whose caves are one of the largest ever built by the ancient Greeks: it has 67 rows, divided into nine sections with eight aisles. Only traces of the scene and the orchestra remain. The edifice (still used today) was modified by the Romans, who adapted it to their different style of spectacles, including also circus games. Near the theatre are the latomìe, stone quarries, also used as prisons in ancient times. The most famous latomìa is the Orecchio di Dionisio ("Ear of Dionysius").

Catania is known to have a seismic history, having been destroyed by a catastrophic earthquake in 1169, another in 1693, and several volcanic eruptions from the neighbouring Mount Etna volcano, the most violent of which was in 1669. Catania has had a long and eventful history, having been founded in the 8th century BC. In the 14th century and the Renaissance, Catania was one of Italy's most important and flourishing cultural, artistic and political centres, including having witnessed the opening in 1434 of the first university in Sicily. Today, Catania is one of the main economic, touristic and educational centres in the island, being an important hub of the technological industry, thus gaining the nickname of the "European Silicon Valley". Accommodations, vacation rentals, villa rentals and apartment rentals in and around town range from historic to modern.
