Ortigia by the sea with aperitif

Tours Reseller exclusions

The waves of the sea of Ortigia speak of heroic battles and folk legends. Seen from the sea, the island's precious architecture reveals unexpected forms and meanings.


  • Enojoy the waves that cuddle the boat over the blue sea
  • Taste the excellent local food and wine
  • Relish the colors and the fragrances that this beautiful city offers


Furrowed by the waves of Porto Piccolo, the tour of the island begins by exploring the many caves, tinged with green and blue by the glare of the sea. Sailing back to the island of Ortigia, you can admire the monumental bulk of the Maniace Castle and the endless sequence of churches and elegant palaces that imposingly overlook the sea. A swim stop is planned in Porto Piccolo followed by a tasty aperitif of local cold cuts and cheeses accompanied by a good prosecco. Diving into the clear waters where the river god Alphaeus chased his beloved nymph Arethusa, you can admire the seabed populated with colorful marine species swimming among the buried remains of the famous Athenian defeat. Finally to contemplate the sun setting over the sea, lulled gently by the waves, toasting to the wonder with a glass of prosecco while the sky is tinged with pink and orange.
