Floridia Holidays

Floridia is a pristine town in the province of Syracuse, in the Sicilian region of Italy. Famous for its architectural and cultural treasures, Floridia is also adorned with abundant natural beauty. This serene town, though very close to the town of Siracusa, has a kind of remoteness in its atmosphere, which gives you a feeling of complete peace and tranquillity, once you’re there. Floridia is also well known for its culinary delights and especially for its distinctly flavoured wines. Coupled with the neighbouring towns of Noto and Siracusa, Floridia is a completely engaging and exhilarating tourist destination, catering to the interests of the historian and the naturalist alike.

Intoxicating Floridia

Floridia lies 12kms west of Syracuse and thrives mainly on livestock, agriculture and manufacturing. It is an independent municipality which spans across 2.6 hectares, and is situated 109 meters above sea level. It was founded in the year 1628. Many of Floridia’s architectural splendours were destroyed in an earthquake in the year 1908. The churches of Floridia are grand, majestic and truly picturesque, bearing testimony of the religious origins of the city. For the culturally enthusiastic minds, there are supremely beautiful architectural gems in Floridia, which are almost enticing to explore. The pristine locales, exotic beach views, mouth watering cuisine and uniquely prepared wines, all add to the intoxicating ambience of this lovely city.

General Etiquette in Floridia

Floridia has a certain rustic feel to it, and the people here are warm and polite. Simple gestures, like handshakes and goodbyes go a long way here. The language spoken is both Italian and Sicilian; a little knowledge of both could come in handy.
