From Syracuse it is easy to reach and visit the Noto Barocca, the natural reserve of Vendicari, the ponds of Cavagrande, the Monello cave, and the Etna, an active volcano in nearby Catania, which periodically with its eruptions offers a breathtaking spectacle. From May to July the obligatory stage is GRECO THEATER to admire the great spectacularity of Greek tragedies by breathing a delicate perfume of zagara.

Bathing in the clear waters of the Ionian Sea is what can not be missed during your stay in this city; a beach umbrella enjoying the relaxation or a dive from the cliff for the most dynamic. If you want to stay in the city, 300 meters from the house, on the seafront of Ortigia there is an equipped solarium that awaits you.

No pets, no smokers.

The child in a cot € 30.00 for the entire stay to be paid to the owner at the checkin.

A beauty of an apartment: well designed, well maintained, very clean and neat. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the help the owner gave us when we could not find the address: Greeting us from the balcony was terrific! The apartment could not have been better located, right in the heart of Ortygia, with super-easy walking access to any and all wonderful tourist sights and restaurants, and shopping. I simply cannot say enough good things about this apartment, and Ortygia in general. Perfect for a couple of mobile middle-agers with a little money to spend and appreciation for the best things in life! Thank you, Floriana!

Miabella Apartment Sicily

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful hosts, very comfortable, beautiful and exceptionally clean apartment which met all of our needs for our holiday. The apartment is situated in a quaint laneway behind one of the main streets of Ortegia. We enjoyed staying there and would do so again if ever back in Ortegia. we have recommended the apartment to our friends. Thank you Floriana.

A great base for exploring Ortigia

  • 4 of 5

Floriana gave us a very warm welcome on arrival to her home and was very helpful throughout our 3 night stay. She had provided a bowl of local blood oranges and strawberries, food for breakfast, as well as a bottle of wine.

Floriana’s well-kept and clean flat is a perfect base for exploring Ortigia. Just a couple of minutes’ stroll away to the south, through the old winding streets, is the town’s colourful market. Five minutes to the north is the grand Piazza Duomo.

Thank you for an enjoyable stay Floriana. Mille grazie.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We felt welcomed with a basket of tasty fresh fruits and a bottle of wine.

Floriana, the owner was there to welcome us when we got there.

It's ideally placed for a stay in Ortigia. The street market is a couple of minutes away.

The public parking is close as well (Talete parking). You can get a 40 Euros monthly rate that allows you to use the parking as much as you want. For this you need to go to the Uffici e Servezi Autoparco Communale.

Definitely a keeper.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that Samuel had a pleasant stay in my apartment. I always try to offer the best to my guests and Samuel's liking rewards me for my efforts, but it is also a reason for me to continue and improve on this path.

Central, clean & pretty quiet. Only issue was parking.

  • 4 of 5

2 weeks in Ortigia late July 2017. Floriana's apartment is very central & convenient for the local shops, bars & restaurants of Ortigia and is clean & today with everything we needed. There is a small supermarket just around the corner which has most things needed on a daily basis. Despite the 'no traffic' rules in the town, there did appear to be traffic (the usual scooters) at all hours, though the apartment is pretty quiet, especially the rear, twin room. The Air-con works well (we had 40deg days!) and the 3 little balconies are secure for toddlers. Ortigia is lovely, but for a family with small children, a two-week stay was perhaps, not ideal, as there is only one pebbly 'beach' on one side of the island - good for sheltered snorkelling but little shade until mid-afternoon - and a tiny patch of sand & stones on the other side - shady in early morning only. The main drawback we found was parking... it is a real problem on Ortigia and I was lucky to only get one fine. There is a car park, but was often full & at 10€/day, would have been v expensive over our whole stay. There are some lovely places to explore nearby, but the thought of moving the car deterred me from making the most of these. Ortigia really needs a 'Park&Ride' type scheme... but this is Sicily and that would be unlikely and the police would not issue temporary Resident's Permits even for a two-week stay. I would love to return, but only when the children are older.

Owner's Response: I'm happy Stephen and her family have had a good time in my apartment. Unfortunately, parking in Ortigia is not always easy especially during the time Stephen has stayed in Syracuse. Just a few miles away there are beautiful beaches equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas but Stephen had to choose between the beach that best suits his children and parking for his car. Fortunately, the children grow up in a hurry and Stephen can then return to Syracuse and enjoy the beauty of this city. Thank you
