"Excellent apartment for two in the heart of Ortigia."

Well placed first floor apartment in a quiet pedestrian street in the heart of Ortigia. Everything is a five minute walk away, the Duomo, street market, sea, etc. A 30 minute walk to the Neapolis and the 5th century BC Greek Teatro.
No fault with the apartment, clean, well equipped, air-conditioned, etc. although the cooking area of the 'kitchen' consists of only two hot rings. This is not a problem with so many excellent restaurants close by but limits the usage of the excellent produce at the daily market.
The published description of the apartment loses a little in translation to English as there is no parking (except occasionally on the street or for 10 euro a day in a car park) , or roof terrace, or sea view from the balcony.
Overall, great value for the price, a friendly welcome, and I would recommend it and hope to return.
