The delights of Ortygia


The magnificent Island of Ortygia constitutes the oldest part of Syracuse and is a destination not to miss for those visiting the city. Visitors can discover its ancient history and its legendary Greek past just by walking it. Splendid buildings in white stone surround us: for instance, Palazzo Beneventano, inspiring palazzo frequented by artists taking the Grand Tour of Europe. Facing out from its balcony, they could enjoy a privileged view onto Piazza Duomo. Syracuse, rich in culture and charm, also offers excellent cuisine and very special enogastronomic products.
