Great stay in a fabulous location
Casa Guilietta is a lovely compact apartment in a beautiful old house in the heart of Ortigia. We loved being close to beautiful old churches and piazzas. Our kids loved being close to cats, ice cream and beaches. Lynette and her daughter were extremely kind and helpful to us from picking us up from the bus station to providing us with a fantastic and knowledgable guide for our amazing day trip to Mount Etna. Our kids also loved their lovely dog George! Ortigia and Casa Guilietta are highly recommended.
Thank you Matthew, Stacy, Helen and Hannah for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have such a lovely family as my guests. I hope you will come and visit us again one day.
