After the lunch, we continues with a visit of the island of Ortigia, Syracuses historic center, which since 2005 has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site for its unique charm due to the presence of the remains of ancient Greek temples, the Maniace Castle, the baroque churches, noble palaces and the amazing Cathedral overlooking the main square.
