Home to two ports, the city of Augusta, in the Italian island of Sicily, is home to some impressive sights. Set on a long sandy island, the old town is connected to the mainland by two bridges. Entering the fortress through the Spanish Gate, you can visit sites such as the Swabian Castle, - an imposing building, which is now used as a prison, the cathedral and the Palazzo Comunale. Nearby is the interesting archaeological site of Megara Hyblaea – ruins of an ancient Greek colony, and the wonderful seaside resort of Brucoli – a charming Mediterranean resort with natural canals and creeks. Here you can lay back and enjoy the southern Sicilian sun and dine out on fresh seafood and fish.
