The District and the surroundings
Easily accessible from the airport of Catania, Casetta Azzurra is located in a well served area (bar, pizzeria, newsagent, bakery, supermarket, organic products shop, pharmacy, etc.). In ten minutes you can walk to some of the most interesting places of Siracusa as the Neapolis Archaeological Park, (which includes treasures such as the Greek Theatre, the Ear of Dionysius, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Latomie of Paradise) , the Paolo Orsi museum and the Catacombs of St. John.
The island of Ortigia is less than three kilometers (about twenty minutes walk): you can easily reach it by bike, but if you decide to go by car, being the island mostly pedestrian area, I will recommend a parking nearby.
Alternatively, near the house you will find a convenient bus (bus no. 12. Runs every hour from 7. 20 to 20. 20) that will take you to the station, from where you can easily reach Ortigia walk or take a shuttle.
If you love the beaches, in 15/20 minutes by car you can reach all the main beach areas of the city.
For more information about the apartment, Syracuse and local events, see the page fb casettaazzurrasiracusa. More photos of the house and the city you will find on Instagram looking for casettaazzurrasiracusa.
In the apartment you will find books and guides about Syracuse and the surrounding areas to read, but if you want to try to live like a local, I will give you plenty of advice on what to see, what to do and where to eat!
Syracuse is the ideal starting point for day trips to Noto (30min), Marzamemi (40min.), And, at about 1h, 1h and 30min. Ragusa, Modica, Scicli. Inland we suggest visiting Palazzolo (40min) and Caltagirone (90 min). In the north direction Catania (45 min) and Taormina (90 min).
The ancient traditions are still preserved in Syracuse and in neighboring countries, especially during the Christmas, Carnival (February 26th-28th) and Easter (April 16th): visiting the area during these periods will allow you to take a dip in the past and enjoy our mild climate.
In addition, I would like to mention the "Classical Representations", a wonderful theatrical festival of international importance that will take place in the Greek Theater from 6 May to 8 July, reachable on foot from the apartment in 5 minutes.
An experience not to be missed!
