L'appartement est très bien situé car proche du centre d'Ortygie.

Il est spacieux et adapté à une famille de 4 personnes, la décoration est simple et un peu vieillotte.

Contrairement à ce qui est indiqué sur l'annonce, il n'y a pas de parking sous la maison, on peut, avec un peu de chance, garer gratuitement la voiture à quelques centaines de mètres sur le front de mer.

Pour ce qui est de la vue sur la mer, on peut effectivement en se penchant et en tournant la tête voir la mer au bout de la ruelle !

Après de nombreux échanges de mails portant sur le règlement de la location et sur notre heure d'arrivée, nous n'avons plus eu de contacts avec Franco qui a délégué à son père (qui ne parle qu'italien) le soin de nous accueillir.

Heureusement que la visite d'Ortygie a compensé la déception de cet appartement.

Ideale ed accogliente

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è ubicato in una posizione comodissima per girare Ortigia a piedi e raggiungere tuti i punti di interesse, piazza Duomo, i monumenti, il mercato del pesce, i locali . E' stato appena ristrutturato, tutto è nuovo! Pulito, completo di ogni comfort per 5 persone e silenzioso nella notte. Al nostro arrivo Franco ci ha accolto con gentilezza e con ogni tipo di informazione utile alla visita della città! Il sottofondo del rumore delle onde è indimenticabile. Sicuramente da consigliare

L'appartamento è perfetto per 4 persone, credo ristrutturato da poco e dotato di ogni comfort in un palazzo in perfetto stile Ortigia.

Spazioso, luminoso e in una posizione strategica: vista mare e vicino alle strisce bianche dove abbiamo lasciato tutte le sere la macchina senza dover pagare nulla (in caso non ci fosse posto il parcheggio Talete è comunque ad un passo). Vi sentirete parte del luogo.

La macchina la potete dimenticare al parcheggio perché Ortigia si gira tutta a piedi ed è un posto magico.

Franco è una persona molto carina e disponibile.

Sono stati 5 giorni magnifici.

The city of Siracusa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the oldest cities around the Mediterranean and in it today are melted together different souls (the Greek and Roman, Arab and Norman, Byzantine and Spanish ) in a set of styles, tastes and smells that make it unique. The most vital and fascinating is its historic center, the island of Ortigia, characterized by its important archaeological sites and museums, baroque palaces, the characteristics churches that dot the winding alleys of the island, from its folkloric daily market fish, with its many local, some restaurants and shops. A short distance from Ortigia you reach the magnificent Archaeological Park, where you can visit the Greek Theatre, the Ear of Dionysus and the Roman Amphitheatre.

Syracuse is also renowned for its crystal clear beaches that, in addition to the beautiful cliffs of Ortigia, is starting to find a few kilometers away in the car just outside the city and extend to the southern part of Italy.

Many cultural initiatives including including you remember the missed cycle Classical Plays, which take place every year at the Greek Theatre of Syracuse during the months of May and June.

Staying in Syracuse the traveler has the possibility to combine art, history, culture, nature and gastronomy plus a touch that is given by the warm hospitality of the Sicilians, they will feel at ease at all times.
