Wonderful old town of Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in Ortigia, we already knew, that we made a good choice. Ortigia is a wonderful old town with many little streets that welcome you to have a walk and explore them. We were even happier, when arriving at the apartment. Lino and Laura gave us a warm welcome, showed us the beautiful apartment, that would be our home for the next two weeks, and provided lots of help and advice from then on. No matter if we had organizational questions or just needed a suggestion for one of our daily trips. But back to the point - the apartment. The apartment is really as beautiful as shown in the pictures. Two rooms, an attached kitchen, a bathroom, wardrobe and a laundry machine privded everything we needed to feel comfy and 'at home'. The air conditioning provided comfort even on those very hot days. In the well equipped kitchen we were also able to prepare some meals ourselves, although we only did this on few occasions.

Since we had Internet access via WiFi, we could easily plan our trips, that basically lead us through the whole of Sicily, when and how it suited us best.

The apartment is located close to the coast, but this felt to be the centre of Ortigia, since most of the restaurants and stores of any kind could be reached within few minutes by foot. One of my highlights, Le Vin de l'assasin, is right across the street and apart from that I can only recommend the restaurants in this neighbourhood.

For gourmets and hobby chefs the market at the Apollo temple might be of interest, which is roughly 15 minutes (by foot) from the apartment. The market as well as the temple are worth visiting. A bit further, at the western outskirts of Siracusa there is an archeological park, where the Teatro Greco can be found. I definitely recommend going there!

At this point we want to thank Lino and Laura again for their kindness and helpfulness. We had a wonderful vacation. Should we ever travel to Siracusa again, we would like to stay in this beautiful apartment again.

Best wishes from Berlin.

Nous avons été très bien ...

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueilli, l'appartement est conforme à l'annonce, idéalement situé au coeur du magnifique quartier d'Ortigia et est très bien équipé. Les petites attentions nous ont touchées : boissons fraiches et pâtes à notre arrivée, produits de douche et de vaisselle... Bref, nous conseillerions cet appartement pour une visite de Siracusa ! Merci.
