DescriptionThe Walking Tour of Ortigia will start from the Temple of Apollo, the oldest greek temple in Sicily. Continue, then, in the direction of Piazza Archimede, where you can admire the Fountain of Diana, linked to the myth of the nymph Arethusa, who is represented here with the Greek goddess Artemis, the most important moment in which he transformed it into a source. In the days when it is open to the public, you can then reach the Church of San Filippo Apostolo alla Giudecca. Here, in the depths, is hidden a secret Ortigia: you will visit the crypt, an anti-aircraft shelter used in World War II and the well, which was previously a baptismal font. You will arrive in Piazza Duomo. Here you can visit the majestic Cathedral and immediately after, if you want, you can independently visit the Hypogeum. Before ending the tour arriving at the enchanting Fountain Arethusa, linked to the love story between Arethusa and Alfeo, you will have the opportunity to taste the cannolo, a symbol of the Sicilian confectionery art.
