Syracuse and Ortygia tour duration app. 6/7 hours.
Geographically and historically, Syracuse can be divided into two distinct areas. On one side is the island of Ortygia, the site of first human settlements and home to Syracuse’s most ancient history. On the other is the modern city, with its architectural, artistic and cultural wealth and contradictions between the old and and the new. More than any other modern city in Sicily, Syracuse manifests a visible continuity from its ancient Greek past, both historical and mythological. We will stroll upon our arrival, the open local fish and fruits market situated in the historical centre.
