Our stay at Giancarlo's was our favorite stop from start to finish. Communication with both Giancarlo (prior to our stay) and his father Luigi (during our stay) was easy, detailed, and thoughtful. The apartment was in a great area of town, off the tourist path, but a 5-15 minute walk to any place on the island. The kitchen was very well appointed so we were able to take advantage of Ortigia's fantastic market and cook our own meals - although there are some great places to eat! Our hosts went above and beyond with their service securing a parking pass for us at the nearby garage and welcoming us with traditional Sicilian cookies. As for the rest of the apartment details - bed and pillows were comfortable, wifi and AC worked well, shower was great, and everything was very clean. Thank you, Giancarlo and Luigi - we had a great time!

Syracusa in the Spring

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible three weeks on the Isola di Ortigia, But the one thing that really set this vacation apart was Luigi Latina.

First let me indicate we found the apt. immaculately clean. It is furnished in a modern style. The apartment will comfortable hold I would say 3 people, but up to 4 would be possible. All the amenities specified are as listed. There is a place to hang washed clothing outside. The shower is European in that the water heating tank is smaller, but you can comfortable take a quick shower and it quickly warms. By the time I finished in the bathroom, there was a full tank for my husband. The apartment is located in a quiet area on the isola, and you can walk easily anywhere on the isola. We also walked up to the archaeological park and other sites. We were there at the end of winter, beginning of spring so it was cool, but the apt has both heating and cooling. There were quilts on the bed so we were comfortable on the cool days.

Now for the extraordinary. From the beginning Luigi went in my estimation above and beyond. He met us at the bus terminal and took us to the apartment. He recommended several sights when we did a side trip to Agrigento. I unfortunately developed bronchitis during the last week and got very ill. Luigi recommended a doctor to see me. At the end since I was still not doing well, he drove us to Catania so I would not have to navigate a bus or train. He is an extremely thoughtful and considerate host.

I would highly recommend Tu Casa Ortigia as a comfortable place from which to explore Syracusa. We intend to return to explore Sicily further and to see Luigi again.

Sicilia Bella!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Sicily many times for vacation and visiting family, but this was our first time staying in an apartment. The owners of the apartment, Giancarlo and his father, Luigi, were both lovely. Prior to our arrival, Giancarlo answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was always very helpful. Luigi greeted us on our arrival to the apartment, showed us around, explained everything to us and even left us some local almond sweet treats which were delicious and very much appreciated. He even came back later in the day to take my husband to help him get a parking pass for our rental car as parking is very difficult in Ortigia. As for the apartment, it was clean and very comfortable, big enough for my husband and I and our 13 year old son for our 2 week stay. The kitchen was functional and nicely stocked with the essentials needed and everything worked well. There were plenty of towels and linens that seemed to have been pressed, definitely a very nice touch. The bedroom was spacious and airy with a comfortable bed and our son slept on the pull out sofa bed with no complaints. There is an air conditioner in both the bedroom and main living space, both worked beautifully which is a must as it is very hot in August and very much needed. The apartment is centrally located and an easy walk to everything. This was a wonderful stay overall and we would love the opportunity to stay again in our next travels back to Sicily. Thank you Giancarlo and Luigi.

Super Lage mitten in der Altstadt von Siracusa auf der Halbinsel Ortigia. Aber doch ruhig, da auf dem Innenhof. Ideal für Leute die mit Bahn oder Bus nach Siracusa kommen. Eigener PKW ist schlecht, da de facto keine Parkplätze in der Innenstadt. Es gibt aber preisgünstige öffentliche Busse, Haltestelle in 50 m Entfernung. Die Wohnung ist neuwertig eingerichtet. Es ist Alles da. Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Insbesondere der Vater Luigi stand mit Rat und Tat immer zur Verfügung. Insgesamt ist die Stadt sehr schön und sauber. Ein Cafe ist gleich im Nachbarhaus, Lebensmittelgeschäft in 50 m Entfernung. Uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen. Danke!
