Sicily is one of the most beautiful regions in the South of Italy, that you can visit all year round, but, obviously, the peak season for tourism, fun and more is summer.
Once arrived in the Sicilian town, you can choose the car rental service in Fontane Bianche (it is only 15 km from Syracuse) and enjoy its marvels.
Its name is inspired by the 4 km white sand beach and by the freshwater sources on the fundal.
The beach of Fontane Bianche has a transparent sea and here you can find both free beach stretches and many bathing establishments equipped with sunbeds, parasols, canoes, pedal boats, bars and other services.
It is considered an ideal place to enjoy the sea, practise the fishing and let yourself be tented by good local cuisine.
What to see in Fontane Bianche
Fontane Bianche is well connected and close to many points of interest, such as the nature reserve of Cassibile, a natural area rich in vegetation, crossed by one of the longest rivers of the South-East Sicilian territory (river Cassibile), which, over millennia, has formed ponds (Laghetti di Avola), ideal for a bath in a natural and paradisiac climate. Moreover, we cannot forget that in Cassibile the armistice was signed in 1943;
And, then, thanks to the car rental in Fontane Bianche, you can get to the UNESCO site of Pantalica, where you can find the necropolis and the remains of the villages of the ancient inhabitants of Sicily;
An unmissable stop for nature and history lovers is the reserve of Vendicari, an unspoiled reserve within which the traced of the ancient world are preserved, from the Greeks, to the Byzantine age and the Middle Ages, up to nowadays;
For those who love the sea and the nightlife, the tour must continue towards the beaches of Calamosche and Marzameni (centre of the nightlife).
