Description

Ortygia is the historical and religious centre of Syracuse. Is a small island joined to the mainland by a couple of bridges. When is possible, I like to offers also  tastings of typical Sicilian food, like Modica’s chocolate, cheeses and charcuterie, at the Local Market or shops in Ortygia.  Is also possible to have lunch together, at a Restaurant or at the Market with Sicilian cheeses, cold cuts, sun dried tomatoes and other traditional food.

You can choose the starting time that you prefer. In the summer I suggest to start in the early morning.
The meeting point will be the Temple of Apollo, which is in Ortigia in Largo XXV Luglio (96100 Siracusa).
During our private walking tour of the island of Ortigia I’ll show you: the Temple of Apollo, the T emple of Athena/Cathedral, the Duomo Square, the Church of Saint Lucy with the painting of Caravaggio (The Burial of Saint Lucy) and the Arethusa's Fountain.
The ticket to the Cathedral/Temple of Athena costs 2 euros per person. Free entrance under 10 and on Sunday.
The Church of Saint Lucy is closed on Monday.
