Amazing town with a stone beach with high wall behind you. We love the charming Sicilian Baroque building in the old city.
the food in this is the BESTEST
A perfectly clean city with welcoming, friendly people comparing with other cities in Sicily. All major spots can be reached on foot or cycling.
A nice city that you can walk around, relax, and get lost.
We stayed in Ortigia but visited siracusa to see the greek and roman amphitheatres.also a big secondhand articles market.
there are lots of cafes &restaurants and shops.but it is a big concrete city.not pretty.devoid of treed streets and the streets are dirty.the people we had contact with were very friendly and helpful.l would not like to stay in the city.Ortigia is quiet very pretty and in easy walking distance of siracusa city.the harbour area that separates ortigia and siracusa is very interesting, an abundance of fishing boats and yachts.
