Two bedroomed renovated first floor apartment situated in Ortigia, the centro historica of Siracusa. The apartment overlooks the Ionian Sea and has stunning sea views, especially when the sun rises. The apartment is accessed through double wrought iron gates which lock automatically, or through a single wrought iron gate on the Lungomare side. The inside courtyard has also been renovated with new flooring with integral lighting and switches on the inside for the automatic gates. The apartment is set out on one floor with the front door leading straight into the kitchen/dining area and the lounge and a small corridor on the left, leading to both bedrooms. The terrace overlooks the internal courtyard and is accessible through double patio doors direct from the kitchen or from the front door. Nearby are local shops, designer shops and the amazing daily fish market. The market also sells local cheeses, breads, olives, fruit and vegetables, no need to eat breakfast before as there are always samples on offer. It is situated in an ideal position for exploring Sicily with Mount Etna and Taormina to the North and beautiful beaches and archaeology sites to the South. Also nearby is Caltigirone for wonderful ceramics, Piazza Armerina the roman villa with amazing mozaic floors and both Noto and Ragusa. The rocks are just a short walk away where you can both swim and sunbathe. Ortigia is best explored on foot as each turn takes you through alleyways which open up to amazing sights. Beautiful little churches, bars, shops, patios in flower, baroque buildings and sleeping cats laying in the sun. There are so many wonderful historic sites in Ortigia, Archimedes Square, Aretusa, The Duomo and the nearby Catacombs and Papyrus museum.

About this location
The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and the nearest land is North Africa. It is hot and steeped in ancient history and has been a very important island strategically over the years. Ortigia is a world heritage site and is a small island connected to the mainland by three bridges. As you come over the bridge into Ortigia on your left is an amazing building lovingly restored to its former glory. The was the Old Post Office but will be a new hotel. On both your left and right you will find little boats moored and fishermen sorting their nets. Piazza Pancali with the Tempio di Apollo is the first site you see and to the left is the daily bustling fish market selling everything from fish, fruit and vegetables to clothes, hats and jewellry. You can walk all around the island or take the free shuttle bus and get off to see the Duomo, Archimedes and Aretusa or just wander around taking in the atmosphere and have a coffee and delicious Sicilian pastry at any of the numerous bars. There are many buses in Ortigia which take you to Catania, Noto, Ragusa, Piazza Armerina and various beaches. However, there is also the Greek Ampitheatre, Catacombs, Papyrus Museum and Archeological museum all within walking distance of Ortigia. The magnificent Mount Etna is worth a visit and can be seen as soon as you arrive at Catania Airport.
