Ideal for Ortigia

4 of 5
Residence Calarossa is right in the heart of Ortigia and has all the facilities we needed. The owner's representative, Gianluca, met our bus from Catania airport and took us to the apartment and made us very welcome. Excellent value for money. Chris & Barbara Robinson, Lymington, Hampshire, UK.

A great apartment in a good location.

4 of 5
Central location with a well equipped property. There is some building work going on around, and the apartment would benefit from an outside area to sit and have a drink after sightseeing. Overall though, Siracusa is fabulous and a wonderful place to visit. I would definitely come back
