Came back to Ortigia after 12 years. It is still oustanding as I remembered, actually it looks even more beautiful by night. A living memory of the richness of the ancient Syracuse. Bright, shining amd polished flooring. Architecture is amazing. The cathedral is awe inspiring.

A large piazza where tourists and locals spend a lot of time. It is busy at all times of the day and night. There were four weddings at the Duomo in the two days we were there. Several ristorantes line the edges and it is...More

Fabulous by day but particularly in the evening, when the great lighting makes it look even more amazing. A good place to have a drink and people watch, although expensive.

The square feels like you are in the center of a large city not the center of an island. Of course the exterior of the cathedral is beautiful but the surrounding buildings are equally as beautiful to see.

You can say this is the heart of the old Syracuse. A beautiful Piazza surrounded by elegant buildings and includes the Duomo. Restaurants with outdoor sitting and as lively as it can get. Musicians, painters, etc.

We only enjoyed a day trip to Syracuse. We came by Interbus from Catania, and enjoyed the day tremendously. But is certainly was far too short a visit to enjoy what is a beautiful city steeped in history over 3000 years. We saw he Piazza...More
