Immersed in the heart of the historical center of Siracusa, in a quiet street of Ortigia Island, with easy parking nearby.

The apartment consists of 2 rooms and bathroom, about 50 square meters., on the first floor with private entrance to offer a comfortable stay in complete freedom and privacy. A living room with window and balcony, kitchenette and two comfortable single sofa-beds, a double bedroom with a window and a practical bathroom with shower. Furnished in a modern style, has been renovated keeping the architectural elements, such as stone arches and niches exposed in the Catalan Gothic style, giving a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Equipped with every comfort such as TV, hair dryer, safe, baby crib, washing machine, refrigerator, ceiling fans, air conditioning, linen, etc.., can accommodate up to 4 people.

It is a few minutes walk from the most important monuments of Syracuse as Piazza Duomo with the imposing Temple of Minerva, the Doric Temple of Apollo, the mythical Fountain of Arethusa, the Maniace Castle of Norman, Corso Matteotti with fine shops, the Hispanic Porta Marina from which starts one of the most scenic walks along the sea that surrounds the island of Ortigia. You can walk through the alleys of the Arab era full of shops, softened by palaces with their beautiful artistic statements and balconies in a stunning mix of architectural styles. A short walk to the bustling Old Market with its typical colors and scents of Sicily, where you can buy local produce to cook comfortably at home. Alternatively, there are numerous restaurants, taverns and pubs where you can enjoy traditional Sicilian cuisine renowned throughout the world. In the upper part of the city you can find the Archaeological Park, with famous monuments such as the Greek Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Latomie of Paradise, the Ear of Dionysius, etc.. A few kilometers from the most beautiful rocky and sandy beaches of Syracuse. Ideal base to visit other cities of Baroque Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Modica.

"Eine schöne Wohnung mitten im Herzen von Ortigia!"

Wir verbrachten eine Woche in Vittorios Wohnung und genossen die zwei großzügigen Zimmer mitten im Zentrum von Ortigia. Vorteil war, dass die Wohnung zudem dicht am Ufer gelegen ist - sowohl zum Domplatz als auch zur Fonte Aretusa und zum Meer sind es nur wenige Minuten.
Die kleine Gasse ist urig und lässt einen diese alte, traditionsreiche Stadt erst richtig erleben. Die geschmackvolle Einrichtung vermittelt sofort ein "Zuhause-Gefühl" und so ist es kein Problem, in der Wohnung zu entspannen, wenn einem die Füße vom Sightseeing schmerzen. ;)
Vittorio erwartete uns bereits und das, obwohl wir kurzfristig erklärten, dass wir zwei Stunden früher ankommen. Er erklärte uns hilfsbereit, wo wir gut essen gehen und den Markt finden können - so war es kein Problem, noch am selben Abend ins "Al Mazari" zu gehen und leckere Pasta zu essen und in den Tagen darauf auch selbst in der gut eingerichteten Küche zu kochen.
Sehr sehr kleines Manko an der Wohnung war das Bad, dies könnte etwas erneuert werden - ansonsten war alles sehr sauber und ordentlich!
Wir hielten uns die eine Woche fast ausschließlich auf Ortigia auf - so viel gibt es dort zu entdecken!
Die Wohnung in Syrakus ist definitiv weiterzuempfehlen!
