The apartment was well located, near the beach but also close to historic sights. We could have done with better instructions of how to reach the apartment plus contact details for the host.

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'.
