Wines directly on the market: Ortigia, Syracuse, Sicily
A visit to the peninsula of Ortigia is an absolute must for every holiday on Sicily. The local market offers incomparably fresh regional specialities. The inhabitants of Syracuse and the restaurant owners purchase their groceries and specialities here daily, and tourists too shouldn't miss the chance to sample a range of local specialities, and feast their eyes on the colourful hustle and bustle: Fresh Mediterranean fruit and vegetables, fish and seafood, local produce and the indefatigable hospitality of the people make shopping an unforgettable experience here. Be sure to drop in at the delicatessen "I Sapori dei Gusti Smarriti" located right at the end of the market: There are tables there where you can sit and spoil yourself. Aside from the fresh food from the market, there are freshly prepared dishes and, most importantly, fine wines to be had. It's a wonderful way to round off a visit to the market, and one that we've enjoyed on every visit we've made to Sicily.
