Beautiful island idyll. Great shopping, restaurants and swimming from rocks.

5 of 5
The apartment is fantastically situated only minutes away from the sea where we swam from the rocks every day. It is very comfortable with everything you could need. The little patio for drying clothes was very convenient. Fabio (Roberta's brother) met us and very kindly sorted out the complicated parking for us. The island itself is very picturesque with lots of lovely shops, bars and restaurants. The market is good for food and we had the best sandwiches in the world at the famous sandwich man's stall - although be prepared to queue (the time goes quickly as it's like performance art!). We went during the Ortigia Film Festival which was an added bonus. Open air free films, several in English or with sub- titles. The archeology museum in Syracuse is also well worth a visit - there's tons to see. Also the Greek theatre etc. We took a day trip to Noto, which is quite small but did have the best ice cream in the world. And swam at one of the many beautiful golden beaches on the way home. We also had an excellent, reasonably priced boat trip to see the caves and swim from a the boat. All all I can thoroughly recommend Ortigia as a base and Roberta's lovely flat. We wouldn't have bothered with a car though as parking is difficult and we just walked everywhere anyway. We would definitely go back - already missing the sunbathing on the 'solarium'.

Central, clean & pretty quiet. Only issue was parking.

4 of 5
2 weeks in Ortigia late July 2017. Floriana's apartment is very central & convenient for the local shops, bars & restaurants of Ortigia and is clean & today with everything we needed. There is a small supermarket just around the corner which has most things needed on a daily basis. Despite the 'no traffic' rules in the town, there did appear to be traffic (the usual scooters) at all hours, though the apartment is pretty quiet, especially the rear, twin room. The Air-con works well (we had 40deg days!) and the 3 little balconies are secure for toddlers. Ortigia is lovely, but for a family with small children, a two-week stay was perhaps, not ideal, as there is only one pebbly 'beach' on one side of the island - good for sheltered snorkelling but little shade until mid-afternoon - and a tiny patch of sand & stones on the other side - shady in early morning only. The main drawback we found was parking... it is a real problem on Ortigia and I was lucky to only get one fine. There is a car park, but was often full & at 10€/day, would have been v expensive over our whole stay. There are some lovely places to explore nearby, but the thought of moving the car deterred me from making the most of these. Ortigia really needs a 'Park&Ride' type scheme... but this is Sicily and that would be unlikely and the police would not issue temporary Resident's Permits even for a two-week stay. I would love to return, but only when the children are older.
