I read from an old post that parking is not allowed in Ortigia or is very expensive. I was going to stay in Ortigia on the sea but I'm wondering if that makes sense if we have a car? What is the major benefit of staying on the island? I see that we can park in Talete and bus or walk-in but I'm wondering if staying in Ortigia is worth the added hassle of parking outside and busing to the car or is it so beautiful that it's worth it to stay in the center of it all? We would stay in Ortigia our first 2 nights which are a Thursday and Friday. Is it the nightlife that is great?
