Ortygia

We arrived in Ortygia from Noto with a driver organised by our host at the B&B in Noto. He was a lovely man and had his small son with him. I practiced my Italian with the little boy. Always good to speak to children. They don’t think you are so bad!
Our arrival into Ortygia was great. It’s a small island connected by a bridge and is just lovely. Our hotel,  the  ROMA was easily found and is right in the centre of town. Perhaps closer to the water would be good but we figured we wouldn’t be in the hotel all that much. And I was right!
