VISION AND MISSION
The initiative aims to the realization of an integrated network that provides tourists with a range of suggestions and itinerary, information about places of interest and services in the area of Syracuse and Ragusa provinces. It offers visitors a network of 45 touch- screen devices, called Totems, placed in sites of tourist attractions, as for example the main street in the Baroque Noto or the historical Balata in Marzamemi. Local institutions, associations and professionals have participated in the realization of itinerary and booking services so that tourists can choose and book online and receive a prompt confirmation. Through the use of this portal you can get tips about where to eat or to sleep. Furthermore, everyday you will be able to choose the “today” program, a daily special deal, created on purposes by local operators. On the web site you can find an e-commerce space where to buy local and typical products, directly delivered at place. This allows tourists to travel without luggage and enjoy colors and scents of Sicily.

Stunning Sicilian towns will be promoted with several and new means of communication: the geo-localization totem system, the multilingual portal and social media where it is possible to share images and news and to intercept a gradually wider band of visitors.
