Travel Tips for Siracusa
Admire the architecture in Ortygia
By looking carefully and wandering slowly around Ortygia you can see some wonderful buildings and details that a more casual observer may not spot. Maybe it's the birdwatcher in me but I really like to see the careful filigree under the balconies, the care put into the door signs, the haphazard way buildings can be built next to each other and yet have survived ( some only just) for tens of years.
Do have a look at the photos. Hopefully they will persuade you to think about visiting Ortygia.
The historic island in the city centre again...Here are some pictures I had no special place for but still wanted to include, starting with what I think is Palazzo Beneventano del Bosco (in Piazza Duomo). Correct me if I am wrong - it is still a beautiful palace.
Those of you who would like to see more of Siracusa should try to watch the film "Malena" which has many scenes shot here. I watched the film AFTER my visit which was not that good for my mental health :)))
Many of the inner streets on Ortygia are pedestrian which is a huge relief in an otherwise quite congested city.
