Baroque beauty in Ortygia

A day or two in Ortygia, the old historic center of Syracuse, is spent soaking in all of its Baroque beauty. Visit the oldest Greek Temple in Sicily, the Temple of Apollo built around 6th century BC. Visit the bustling street market in the morning. Join the locals at night in the flood lit square of Piazza Del Duomo. Watch a sunset that rivals any at a waterfront cafe. Sip a refreshing cocktail under the shade of the umbrella at Cafe Minerva – a local favorite. Reflect on why there are so many reasons to love Sicily and to love Ortygia. Did I mention it is a World Unesco Heritage site?
