Description

Stunning historic old town of Syracuse, good shopping and great markets. 

The tiny fortified island of Ortiga (1km long) covers two and a half millennia of history. The natural centre is Piazza del Duomo, the cathedral square, with grand old buildings lining the approaches. The cathedral itself incorporates old fluted columns from a Greek temple built around 500BC.
