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

Stylish, uber cool, well located - terrace is fab

5 of 5
Perfect location just a short walk away from the main square. Small street that is lively during the day but quiet at night. Ideal for a couple but has two bedrooms so suit two couples as well. Slept in large bedroom on lower level right next to the bathroom which is at the back of the flat away from the street so very silent at night. Great kitchen with oven and everything you need to cook. The flat is much larger than photos suggest. Big comfy sitting room. Terrace is amazing - but you must be willing to water the plants! Melina was very helpful in answering our question prior to arriving and her friend Viviana met us and got us well settled in. Would want to come back to this super cool flat again. Ortigia is truly amazing. Thanks for allowing us to share your special home Melina - we had a really good holiday. Best Homeaway property we have ever stayed in!
