24 Hours in Ortigia

With its old and restored baroque architecture, Southern Sicilian food – a unique blend of ancient Greek and Arabic cuisine – and legendary Sicilian culture steeped in over 2,700 years of art and history, it’s no surprise Ortigia is one of Sicily’s most popular destinations. From its tight-knit medieval lanes pleasant for strolling, the abandoned palazzi, seafront churches and picturesque alleys, here I share where to go, what to see, and how to most enjoy the colorful and vibrant destination.
