The island of Ortigia is the beating heart of the whole city: just a square kilometer yet an enchanting treasure trove of treasures and natural beauties ready to amaze you.
Temples, castles, ancient aristocratic residences and baroque churches determine the charm of the small island dedicated to Artemis. It is pleasant to get lost in its alleys, in search of rare atmospheres lost elsewhere and which here are perceived even more alive than ever.
Of Ortigia it really strikes its human dimension, its tranquility and in its small but intoxicating market the soul resides. Among fruit and vegetable stalls, cheese shops, typical products and fish stalls, in perfect harmony, all the colors, flavors and aromas of this enchanting land can be enjoyed in the evening in the typical local trattorias or in its refined restaurants.
From the Arethusa terrace, above all at sunset, the whole city is dominated: from the ruins of the Greek fortress of Eurialo, to Etna, dwelling on the elegant Frederick's fortress of Castello Maniace, the southernmost tip of Ortigia that seems to caress the blue waves of sea.
The undergrounds of Ortigia unfold telling the secrets of its people and jealously guarding other treasures: the "Jewish Bath" in the heart of medieval Giudecca, and the Hypogeum of Piazza Duomo, the scene of local chronicles of the Second World War.
Furthermore, the view is lost in the undulating Plemmirio, today a protected marine area, an ideal destination for nature excursions by sea and by land, and which is located close to the seaside areas of Syracuse, Arenella, Fontane Bianche, Ognina and Terrauzza.
A few kilometers from the city another magical place: the "Fonte Ciane", testimony of the love between the beautiful nymph and Anapo.
Here we recommend the return of the river by boat, among unique specimens of Papyrus to the source.
Del Papiro in Syracuse still retains its memory, not only in its small museum but above all in quality craftsmanship which, faithfully following the recipe of the ancient Egyptians, reproduces the beauties of the Aretusian city in watercolors on original papyrus paper.
Syracuse is all this and much more: a continuous discovery, between warm and welcoming people.Get the full listing »
