Syracuse is known for its catacombs, aqueducts and underground tunnels that were developed across ages since the subsoil terrain of the city was easy to cut into. Over years, the underground tunnels formed a network almost like an anthill that had many colonies below the ground.

One such network is the Ipogeo di Piazza Duomo that has its entrance at the base of the Archbishop's Garden. The Ipogeo was built to supply water to not just the garden but to the whole of Ortigia. The hypogeum was also used during the Second World War as a bunker to protect the locals from air attacks.

Today, its tranquil tunnels pull tourists to explore a whole new world under the city and be one with the sound of the water dripping, rich echoes, the cool environment and the sheer history that resonates through its walls.
