Price is extremely fair. Many steps but they are safe and well spaced. The free guides were three students - I'm in my 60's and their English was limited - we had an interesting, educational and informative time understanding and interperating each other. Well worth...More

If you like tunnels, then these are pretty tunnelish! Deep down below the Piazza and reached by descending many stairs, there are a series of tunnels that lead down to a chamber that was used as an air raid shelter and a further tunnel that...More

We were told about the tunnels by our host otherwise it would have easy to miss them. We found them amazing and they extended a lot further than we were allowed to explore. The best room was the one with the large domed ceiling that...More

Many visitors seem not to have been impressed with this place, but I was and spent several hours in it. It depends on what you were expecting. Maybe because my expectations were low, I got more than I thought I would. Particularly impressive for me...More

It's the big square in front of the Duomo, with lots of marble, cafes and restaurants, plus some places to buy post cards.

Suddenly realised on our last day in Ortigia that the entry to this was right opposite our appartment and basically is a load of tunnels that go underneath Piazaa duomo! It's not well signed up to be honest but is a little doorway in a...More

An atmospheric collection of tunnels, well lit with fascinating but seemingly random information boards, some about the place itself and others about other parts of Sicilian history, as a result there's no coherent explanation of the story. The exit is in a completely different street...More

Paid 5€ to wander through some underground tunnels with a few pictures on the walls. Nothing like I imagined it would be like. Felt like a total waste of money after paying 2€ to visit the spectacular Duomo next door. Got to end of tunnel...More

Deep, well-lit, stepped descent to a remarkably large central section with long passages leading off in different directions. A dome under the cathedral was a surprise! There was a display of old images of Ortigia in the main area - apparently a bid to kick-start...More
