The island of Ortigia is the historic center of the city of Siracusa, Sicily. I think it can be considered a true open-air museum with monuments that tell the story of the Mediterranean of the last three millennia (see my last post). But it is when it gets dark and the lights come on that Ortigia Island reveals even more its special charm.
Ortigia (Ortygia) is a small island very close to the east coast of Sicily. The isle has always been the heart of the city of Siracusa (Syracuse) and looks back on a history of almost three millennia. I liked strolling around Ortigia getting lost in the many narrow streets, crossing the ages of Mediterranean history in its buildings and monuments. And then, as said, it’s a small island and every walk ended up on the sea with beautiful views of the waterfront.
