Maniace Ortigia's Place-of-Arms

The Maniace Garden, a stretch of grass planted with palm trees, facing the sea and the 13th century Maniace fortress that protrudes into the sea. We would like to thank Bar Maniace, who manages this space, for offering us this wonderful opportunity.

Antico Mercato


Facing the ruins of the Apollo Temple, this palace will be the hub of the festival. It is surrounded by the daily market. Its rooms have high ceilings and face the central patio and its columns.

The 15th century Palazzo Francica Nava is home to Exedra Mediterranean Center (EXEDRA). Custom and Faculty-led programs, Italian language and culture courses, Workshops and summer schools, Study-holidays for all. It is 20 meters away from the Duomo square.

Forte Vigliena


The Forte Vigliena was part of the ramparts erected by the Spanish around the island. Its terrace, facing east, dominates the solarium of the same name and the sea. It lends itself perfectly to morning greetings.
