    Brilliant local and foodie experience I ever had

    We visited three absolutely amazing food and wine spots: first one with fish delicatessen and white wines, second with typical homemade apptizers and red wines; third place with surprising sweets and liquors. Between the places we had a great walk through Ortigia jems with friendly and very knowledgeable local guide who shared with us a lot of secrets about local life and traditions of Siracusa. Highly recommended to everyone who visit Siracusa.

In the end of the tour I was totally full. Tour finish in a patisserie for shots of Sicilian liquors and pastries. Guide was very funny and informative. Great tour
