Founded in 734 BC from colonists of Corinth, Syracuse will become for Cicerone “the greatest and most beautiful of all the Greek cities”. The name originates from Syraka (“abundance of water”), thanks to the numerous waterways of the city. During the Greek period, Syracuse reaches its maximum splendor. Today there are several historical testimonies of this era: the Fonte Aretusa di Ortigia, the Teatro Greco, the Acquedotto Galermi, the Orecchio di Dioniso and the Ara di Ierone, the Templi Greci di Apollo e di Zeus. The power of the Greek polis of Syracuse extended to the Adriatic, with several Syracusan colonies. After the Greeks, with the Romans the importance of the city decreases. Despite this, notable remains of the era remain today: from the Anfiteatro Romano to the Ginnasio, up to the Catacombe. Syracuse is the first city of the West with a Christian community. After the Vandali, the Bizantini with Belisario in 535 conquered Syracuse and Sicily. With Constant II, the city lives a flourishing period and becomes the imperial seat, but with its successors a civil war puts an end to the Byzantine Empire. The arrival of the Arabs in 878 shakes Syracuse violently, causing 5.000 victims. A political crisis will bring the Arab domination to be replaced again by the Byzantine one. This period corresponds to a cultural revival of the city, especially from an architectural point of view.
