Spring is the perfect time to plan a visit to Ortigia.


Not to be missed is the Greek Theater of Syracuse, one of the largest and best-preserved in the Greco-Roman world, where the echoes of ancient plays can still be heard during spring events. No less impressive are the remaining monuments of the Neapolis Archaeological Park, such as the Ear of Dionysius and the Roman Amphitheater, which blend magically with nature in bloom, offering ideal settings for unforgettable souvenir photos.


The Island of Ortigia, the ancient heart of the city, enchants with its Baroque-style architecture and charming alleys that come alive in fine weather. Here, every corner hides stories to tell, such as the magnificent Fountain Arethusa, a living legend that continues to flow through the city's veins.
