Walking Tour of Ortygia

Alpheios’ sacred stream, precious gem of the great Syracuse, 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 façades 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. 

On this private walking tour, we will stroll along the alleys 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 "basolati" (stone-paved streets).
