L 'island of Ortigia is the oldest part of the city of Syracuse. Its name comes from the old "ortyx" greek which means quail. It is the heart of the city, the first to be inhabited in antiquity, thanks to its geographical position and the presence of water and springs.

As the whole of Sicily, Ortigia is also testimony of past centuries and populations that have occurred. Its territory tells of an ancient history that saw the arrival of the Greeks followed by the Romans, by the Swabians, Aragonese and by the Arabs.

Today visit Ortigia is like walking through history and admire its splendor, get lost among its small neighborhoods, revealing wonders.

The most famous areas of the island are: Bottari, Cannamela, Castle, Cathedral, Gancia, Giudecca, Graziella, Maestranza and Marina.

Among the most interesting things to see to find Ortigia Maniace Castle, the Temple of Apollo (VI century a. C.), the Duomo (Ionic temple VIII century b. C.), the Fountain of Artemis (1906), the Source Arethusa, Porta Urbica (VI-V century a. C.), the Palace of the Archbishop, the Church of San Martino, the Church of Saint Lucia to the Abbey, the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Palazzo Beneventano-del Bosco, the Palace of Mergulensi-Montalto, Porta Marina del '500, the church of St. Peter's Intra Moenia and the Church of St. John the Baptist.

The island has followed the times and it is also filled with restaurants, pizzerias and various places where you can spend some 'time in the company to enjoy the excellent Sicilian cuisine. Even a stroll along the promenade is an experience not to be missed.

Fantastic property in brilliant location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Ortigia in Stefano’s apartment. The flat was spacious and the location was amazing – right in the centre! Stefano was a brilliant communicator – replying to our queries immediately – and also very helpful in picking us up from the bus stop and taking us to the flat. A very nice man! The reason we’re not giving 5 stars is that the kitchen was a bit lacking in equipment…e.g. kitchen knives and oven-proof dishes would have been helpful. Apart from that – fabulous!

Wonderful location in Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

Stefano met the four of us at the railway station when we arrived and drove us to the apartment. He was very welcoming and was very thorough in showing us the apartment and it's features. It is a great location, easy walking to Ortigia's many historic and archaeological sites, snd very close to a good supermarket and fresh food market. The apartment is very spacious, with big bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms, and plenty of windows. It easily accommodated two couples. We had a great time and would highly recommend this apartment to friends.

Room for a family to relax

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place for a family or a few couples, this is the place for you. It is spacious , has 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large dining room table. However, the major attribute is its central location. It is literally in the center of Ortigia, meters from the best restaurants and a short walk from everything including the market. The kitchen equipment was a bit sparse, so without to much detail, I would recommend you think about what you might be cooking and then discuss with Stefano which utinsiles you might needed in case something is not there like a large kitchen knife. Note that there is a new large fridge, and Stefano leaves a stock of delicious local lemons. A car is not needed or even convenient on the island, but if you have one for day trips you leave it in a large parking structure about 10 minutes walk. You immediately feel at home in this apartment the first time you return from your initial exploration of the town. Also, Stefano is always available to you by phone or text. My party would definitely seek to stay here again, should we return to Siracusa.
