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'.

Kleines Apartment in wunderschöner Altstadt

  • 4 of 5

Ortigia ist eine wunderbare alte Stadt, alles ist fußläufig zu erreichen. Wir haben Ausflüge mit dem Auto nach Noto und Ragusa gemacht, auch ins Naturschutzgebiet Vendicara, alles gut zu erreichen und wunderschön. Zum Meer sind es nur ein paar Schritte und es gibt unzählige - sehr gute - Restaurants in Ortigia.

Das Apartment ist klein, aber gut ausgestattet; die Vermieterin war ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und hat auch im Vorfeld alle Fragen beantwortet.

Einziger Minuspunkt: die Aussicht von der kleinen Terrasse ist nicht so idyllisch wie auf den Fotos - man blickt auf eine Brandruine, ehe man das Meer sieht.

Ansonsten war alles ansprechend.

Le bonheur à Syracuse

  • 5 of 5

C'est une ville qu'il faut découvrir et qu'on apprend à aimer au fil des jours. Il y fait bon flâner, visiter de superbes églises et monuments et aller à la mer.

Pretty location full of character

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this apartment. It's so pretty (I felt like we were staying in a castle with the lovely arches and exposed stone) and has everything we needed. We were welcomed by Roberta's mum who was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know. We also loved the location... It's close to a solarium, electric bus stop, has a little supermarket and bakery just around the corner, a lovely bar nearby. It's easy walking distance to all the main sights (or electric bus). I loved my time in Ortigia and wish I was staying longer.

Ritornerò

  • 5 of 5

Complimenti a Roberta e alla mamma. Struttura assolutamente coerente al prezzo richiesto. Pulizia, organizzazione e posizione rendono questi appartamenti assolutamente piacevoli. Necessario un mezzo proprio per vivere la zona esterna ad Ortigia (mare, musei escursioni). Consiglio un garage pubblico (Ztl multe risolto e posto assicurato) suggerito dalla proprietaria.
