Valeria was an excellent guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about Syracuse, Ortygia and Sicily. Her passion for history was evident. And we were able to see in detail by walking that any other form o f transportation. We would highly recommend both Valeria and the walking tour over

This was a very interesting tour- our guide, Carmine, was very nice and knowledgeable and showed us the most interesting parts of the city, including a very old Mikveh ritual bath that we never would have seen otherwise.
Highly recommended!

Eva was our tour guide in Ortygia. She is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Ortygia's history. Her passion and love of this beautiful and historic island made our stay there that much more enjoyable. We highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was excellent and we couldn't have asked for more from her. She spent a lot of time with us walking around Ortygia and the markets and he English was excellent.

Eva guided our tour of both the archaeological park and downtown Ortigia. She was outstanding. We absolutely and whole-heartedly recommend her! It was a wonderful experience for us. Eva is so knowledgeable, very kind, easy to talk to. She had an answer for every question. Thank you!!

If history is your thing, you'll enjoy this stroll through the gorgeous island of Ortygia or Ortigia, which is brimming with beautiful sites, churches, restaurants and narrow streets. Don't miss Saint Lucy's bone stored in a chapel inside the cathedral it'll cost an extra 2 Euros, but the stunning inside of the cathedral is worth it or Caravaggio's masterpiece painting The Burial Of Saint Lucy in the neighboring church of Santa Lucia alla Badia. Our guide was a lovely German woman who has resided in Syracuse for the past 40 years, and she was full of knowledge. We got her to expand on the hilarious mythology of the Fonte Aretusa simply by asking some questions so don't be afraid to ask the guides to go into more depth. They love talking about this stuff.
