Together with the Ancient Greek and Baroque beauties, Ortigia historic food market is a must-visit place when you travel to Syracuse.
This market takes place every morning (except Sunday) and is characterized by the evocative and lively atmosphere of the Italian markets. Vendors shouting and gesticulating, fascinating colors, the smell of fresh produce, the catch of the day and local herbs, everything is so authentic and alive.
