Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The apartment is in Ortigia, the heart of Syracuse historical centre, minutes walk from the main square and the promenade by the sea. Ortigia is a small island linked by two bridges to the main town and is now one of Unesco protected World Heritages centres. Its labyrinth of little alleyways dotted with ancient Greek ruins, Baroque fountains, open air restaurants and cafes will not fail to entertain you.
Syracuse was the capital of the Magna Grecia and you can enjoy visiting one of the largest Greek theatres, where in May and June they still perform plays from Aeschylus to Aristophanes; another sight not be missed are the S. Giovanni Catacombs, second in size only to the Rome ones. The heart of the town is the magnificent Cathedral Square, a large pedestrian area surrounded by beautiful buildings. The sight of the lit up square enjoyed while having a meal in one of the open air restaurants will be an unforgettable magical memory.

The Sicily region
"To have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not having seen Italy at all - for Sicily is the key to everything". - Goethe
"This is where Europe finally ends. Beyond is Africa and on Asia". - D H Lawrence
A holiday in Sicily will take you on the most extraordinary journey through time and space. A journey amongst different scents, colours, sounds and flavours. Through 3,000 years of history and civilizations.
Over many centuries the Sicilian island - thanks to its geographical position - has been a very important destination and a natural harbour for the ancient navigations of the merchants in the Mediterranean.
Land full of myths and legends, a central region between the East and the West and main colony of the “Magna Grecia”, fortress of empires and reigns, Sicily guards an amazing treasure of history, culture, art, traditions and folklore. This is why Sicily - ancient land of conquer- still today conquers and charms all visitors.
Sicily is a fascinating mix of different peoples that have come to it over the centuries - Ancient Greeks and Romans, Arabs, Byzantine, Spanish and French.
All of this is reflected in the island's customs, history, food and architecture.
The centuries of different dominations have left artistic and cultural marks, and today a holiday to Sicily lets you travel through thousands of years of history.
Syracuse was the capital of the Magna Grecia and you can enjoy visiting an extensive archaelogical site includig one of the largest Greek theatres, where in May and June they still perform plays from Aeschylus to Aristophanes; another sight not be missed are the S. Giovanni Catacombs, second in size only to the Rome ones. The heart of the town is the magnificent Cathedral Square, a large pedestrian area surrounded by beautiful buildings. The sight of the lit up square enjoyed while having a meal in one of the open air restaurants will be an unforgettable magical memory.
The city centre is on the baroque island of Ortigia, crowned by the 17th century cathedral built over the remains of the Greek temple of Athena. Ortigia is a small island linked by two bridges to the main town and is now one of Unesco protected World Heritages centres. Its labyrinth of little alleyways dotted with ancient Greek ruins, Baroque fountains, open air restaurants and cafes will not fail to entertain you.
Syracuse is by the sea, with a lively promenade running alongside the length of the marina, where visitors can admire the many varied boats. Sandy beaches are nearby. The town has excellent connections to all the island and it is around 35 miles from the international airport of Catania.
