"Acceuil exceptionnel !

Une corbeille de fruit nous attendaient ,la disponibilité et la gentillesse de Francesca nous a beaucoup touchés et d'ailleurs nous avons gardé contact .

Appartement de charme très bien situé au coeur de l'île d'ortigia .

Très calme car il se trouve dans une petite impasse fleurie avec terrasse aménagée ,ce qui a permis à ma fille de jouer en toute sécurité .

A deux pas à pied de la mer et de tout les monuments historiques et musées ,l'originalité de cet appartement sont les deux entrées et sorties qui permet d'aller d'un coté et de l'autre de l'île ce qui est très pratique (gain de temps)avec un magnifique lavoir à l'entrée .

Excellente qualité à tout point de vue .

Nous vous recommandons chaudement cet appartement .

"Accueil très agréable; disponibilité de l'hôtesse (si problèmes ou pour renseignements....)Location propre, calme. L'accès avec un véhicule est impossible, du fait de l'emplacement (au coeur des ruelles d'Ortigie dans une impasse)mais on accède à la plage à pied.Un bémol : l'équipement (compteur électrique trop faible, pas de cafetière électrique, un peu plus d'ustensiles de cuisine serait plus pratique)"

Things to do around :

Scuba diving, sailing, fishing, watersports, kayak, hiking, museum, historical sites, cinemas, nightclub.

How to get there :

From the airport of Catania, take a taxi or a bus (which is the cheapest option) till the bus terminal Siracusa “Ortigia”.

The apartment is 300m from the bus station. To go from there till the travel agency (to get the house keys) take “piazza Archimede” (next to the temple of Appolon) and then “via Maestranze” and go the the agency “Technocasa” situated at n° 41/43 (phone n° 093148336).

Mr Angelo Aprile will be wating for you to hand over the keys and guide you to the apartment.

A 300€ deposit will be retained and returned after the inventory of fixtures.

Good Ideas :

The tourist office is at 100m away from the apartment (via delle Maestranze).

You have a typical Sicilian market at 200m away (facing the temple of Apollon).

Here are the closest monuments from the apartment (from 30m to 200m by walk) :

- Count Gargallo Palaca

- Apollon’s temple

- Duomo Cathedral

- Archimede’s Square

At 2km away, you can visit the sanctuary of Madonna delle Lacrime and one of the world’s biggest Greek theatre, and Saint Giovanni’s catacombs.

There are also extraordinary visits you can do in Sicily such as :


The volcano of Etna

The gorge of Alcantra





And you can also go to Malta by speed boat from Ortigia (around 2 hours)
