I love visiting Ortigia, Syracuse. The Piazza Duomo has been so beautifully restored. Sit down at one of the cafes and sip a capuccino or a drink and soak up the athmosphere.

A marvellous place.The architecture ...centuries of it. The mixture of styles plus the history of the city. Archimedes lived and was murdered in a great Island.

This whole area of Ortygia is beautiful. The plaza is clean and pristine and surrounded by elaborate Baroque buildings. Be sure to walk across to the Church of Santa Lucia Alla Badia and see the painting by Caravaggio.

A enormous piazza with shops, street cafes and a large Cathedral. We sat in an outdoor café and watched the bustling activity. The cathedral was absolutely beautiful and inviting.
