Exploring Ortigia

October 4, 2017

Monday was a day to sleep in a bit, since my only obligation was returning my little Fiat by 10:00. After dropping the car, I had a late breakfast at the cute Angelina’s Bakery, where I could actually get a spinach and cheese omelet. Then I did a proper tour of the Ortigia market, buying some lovely peaches, pears, and a prickly pear cactus fruit.

The fishmongers were pretty vocal, calling out encouragement to buy (click to watch the short video)…

My wanderings took me to Fontana Diana (!), the Jewish Quarter, and the Museo dei Pupi (Puppet Museum).

  1. Well at least they don’t throw fish like they do at Pike’s Market Place.
