We really enjoyed this tour and our tour guide - Ava - was wonderful. She gave us lots and lots of facts about what we were seeing. She spoke English well and it was easy to understand her. She has a lovely personality and we so enjoyed working with her. The tour content was amazing and we are so glad we had this time to learn about Ortigia and all the amazing things there. Thank you to Miss Ava!!

We took a walking tour of Ortygia, led by Eva. She was terrific, her English really good and she tailored the tour to our interests flawlessly. She was very interesting and we saw many older buildings and Eva gave them context. Greeks came, then Romans built upon the Greek temples, then Arabs, then Christians......so much of what's left is on top. 2 plus hours gave us a good feel for the island across from Siracusa
