Island of Ortigia

Island of Ortigia

The UNESCO-listed island of Ortigia is essentially the heart of the city. It’s where you’ll find stunning church façades, trattoria tables spilling out onto grand public squares and sea views that are hard to rival. You can spend hours strolling the streets and stopping to eat, drink and shop in some striking settings. Don’t miss the 13th-century Maniace Castle that sits at its tip.
