About Luca Giannini
I am an artist and the owner of Anime a Sud properties in Modica and in Siracusa. Art and travelling share the value of discovering beauty. When travelling I am always looking for special places to stay, featuring an original atmosphere and in the meantime being able to let you feel at home. This is Anime a Sud's concept: charming artist homes where the authentic blends with style. Welcome to a new concept of staying in Sicily
Luca Giannini purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Luca Giannini chose Ortigia
Casa Sabir is our third home in South Sicily, a magical land where nature, sea, cultural heritage and food combine in a unique way. When I first saw this property I was fascinated by its close relationship with the underlying food market , with its fish and vegetable stalls, the call of the sellers, the colors and the aromas of the spices... an authentic picture of sicilian life which I would love to share with thoughtful travelers coming from all over the world

The island of Ortigia, the ancient heart of Syracuse where more than 1000 years ago settled Greek colonists from Corinth, is today a fascinating maze of streets where the yellow of the sandstone consumed by time and saltiness suddenly stops in intense glimpses of blue.
Casa Sabir is located in the "market" quarter, overlooking the seafront of Levante, a few steps from the temple of Apollo, the oldest one in the city.
In this area, in addition to the market stalls of fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and spices where shopping is a real experience, you can find a wide choice of restaurants where you can try traditional recipes or experiment with a more refined cuisine, or also stop in the historic drugstores where you can enjoy fish rolls, tasteful stuffed sandwiches and platters of meats and cheeses.
