Great location for visit to Syracuse
The property is in a great location for visiting both Ortigia and the sights of Syracuse. Only about a 15 min walk to the Greek theatre and archaeological museum or 10 mins to get onto the beautiful island of Ortigia. The apartment is spacious and clean with plenty of room for 6 adults. Simona was a great host and was always available to answer any questions we might have. The wine that she gave us when we arrived was also very much appreciated. Would definitely recommend the property as a good base for a family visit to Syracuse.
Great location. Comfortable and clean
Excellent location for walking to Ortigia. Well equipped 3 bedrooms. Fun market nearby on Sunday morning.
Two en suite bathrooms. However the occupants of the third bedroom have to enter one of the other bedrooms to access the toilet and shower.
Great stay, responsive hosts.
This place was perfect. Location was an oasis in a busy city. Lots of street parking and only a 15 minute walk to the tourist hub of Ortigia. Beds were super comfortable, kitchen we'll set up and they even left us a bottle of wine. Santi met us and gave us a sheet with tons of recommendations, most of which we tried. All in all just perfect, especially if you are driving and just want to park the car. The also gave us the name of a taxi service and our driver, who spoke fluent English, was fabulous. Thanks for a great stay!
Wonderful Syracuse Adventure
Simona and Santi have a wonderful apartment right next to the Santa Lucia Piazza / Park. The apartment is well appointed with everything and more that we expected. Simona was very helpful along with her lovely mum at our arrival. We were able to walk everywhere and of course spent much time in beautiful Ortigia. The apartment was obviously updated with wood beams and lots of skylights upstairs that were opened letting in so much fresh air.. Would highly recommend this apartment. Best Regards, Jim & Dianne Hanson
The property was very clean and very modern.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Our son was able to stay with us. He lives in Syracusa. Our hot water went out one morning due to the very severe weather the night before and the owner responded immediately to getting back on. The place is very clean and cozy. It is within walking distance to ortigia and to most anything you want to do in syracusa. We plan on returning in May and hope the property is available. Easily sleeps 6. All utilities are new. Thank you to the owners for responding so quickly to any questions that we had. You made us feel at home.
A very comfortable house in a good location
We were very happy in this well equipped house just off the Piazza Santa Lucia. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms excellent, the kitchen well fitted for as much as we wanted to cook. The heating was effective, hot water plentiful, the wi-fi connection fast and reliable.
There is a large step in the upstairs bathroom - we could have done with a little plug-in nightlight to remind us of it in the night.
Of the recommended restaurants we tried, La Putia was the best. The bakery around the corner was excellent for breakfast pastries, the supermarket on Corso Gelone for most other things, and the little street market stalls good for veggies and oranges.
There was a huge market in the square on the morning of the 17th, if this is a regular thing it would be good to mention it in the information.
We would like to recommend the Cafe Riviera on Via Arsenale. The staff were extremely friendly to us, they have wonderful savoury pastries, the coffee is good, and they make a splendid negroni!
We found it easy to walk all over Ortigia from the house, the hop on hop off bus is good value for an initial orientation day, the archeological park is a wonder and we visited as many museums as we could fit in. The tourist maps are often confusing and we often got lost but it was a pleasure wandering down new alleys.
