Half Day Walking Tour of Ortygia

Culture and History tour in Siracusa

Tour Price : €180 Duration : 4 hours Languages: English, Italian

"Alpheios’ sacred stream, precious gem of the great Siracusa, Ortygia, altar of Artemis" (Pindar, "The Nemean Odes")

The island of Ortygia was the first site of the Corinthian settlers, and it contains the complex historical events of Syracuse among the streets of Greek origin, the walls of the Medieval buildings and the facades of the Baroque churches. Here, as one can seldom find elsewhere, myth and history, ancient and modern, pagan and Christian, light and shade, combine harmoniously with a natural backdrop of incomparable beauty.

During this tour, we will walk among the narrow lanes of Ortygia, that discloses exceptional Greek, Roman and Late Antiquity monuments not only among the walls of Medieval and Baroque buildings but also under its stone-paved streets. This island represents an extraordinary ensemble of myth, history and art.
