We had a fantastic stay in Lorena's apartment in Ortigia and can highly recommend it - it was everything and more than we expected. Clean and spacious, it was perfectly located - a very short walk to the Duomo and many beautiful cafes and restaurants. Our particular favourite was A Putia (just round the corner) - fantastic food, great hosts and excellent value. A big thank you too to Lorena's father, Bruno. Bruno picked us up from the station, showed us around Ortigia, gave us great background on the history of Ortigia AND told us the best places to go for dinner, coffee and canaloni! What more could you want!! Thank you Lorena and Bruno.
Staying in Lorena's apartment was one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. The location is perfect -- right in the middle of everything but on a quiet street. Lorena and her mother literally thought of everything -- the house contains practically anything you would need for a great holiday stay. The beds were comfortable; the apartment was clean and modern. We highly recommend this apartment.
The apartment was very nice, modern design, clean. It was a real pleasure to stay there. It was very easy communicate with the host. And above it all the father of the host came to give us a key and told us the history of the town and gave us some names of the places to visit. It is located in the center of the town and close to the sea. I recommend this place.
We very much appreciated being met by Lorena's father at the bus station- and the information and advice he gave us.
The apartment couldn't be better located, and the neighbour downstairs was very friendly.
The apartment itself is large and very well equipped ( although we would have liked a grater and a larger coffee maker!) and Lorena is extremely generous in leaving well stocked cupboards and a starter pack in the fridge.
We had a really good holiday exploring Siracusa and the surrounding area, and most especially eating fabulous food in the restaurants of Ortigia.
We have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.
The only way to make it even better would be to get rid of the very large glass table and chairs in the sitting room and replace them with another sofa/ some comfortable chairs.
Many thanks, Lorena!
This is a lovely apartment in the best area of Ortegia. Really modern, well equipped and tastefully furnished. Lorena's friends made us most welcome, showed us where to park our car (not easy in this area, so you need local knowledge!) and gave us tips on where to eat.
Thank you, Lorena, we look forward to returning next year!

Great apartment in a quite neighborhood and the duomo was really close by. The apartment was spacious and clean. Highly recommended.
Lorena's apartment in the center of historical Syracuse met all our needs. The location was just perfect and after 3 weeks we felt that we were part of the charming neighborhood. Lorena was always available to answer any question as well as recommend restaurants, hair dressers and so forth. She immediately responded to any need that came up.
The apartment is divided in such a way that makes it ideal when being shared by 2 couples.
For these reasons and for all the other wonderful memories that we have of our stay in Syracuse. I highly recommend Lorena's apartment.
Lorena's place is in the heart of the old city on the island of Ortigia. It is the best location we could ever imagine, just a few steps from the duomo and beautiful shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The island is magical and charming, and just downstairs we could walk around the small streets that were all lit up in a romantic atmosphere at night. Lorena's father met us and showed us around. We had quite a challenge getting two babies and several large suite cases to the apartment, as there is no parking for large cars near the place. Bruno was patient and helpful, navigating in the narrow streets trying to get us as close as possible. He had many recommendations for us that turned out to be great! Lorena was also helpful and always answered us immediately through the airbnb website, even at late hours of the night. The apartment is great, very clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed and allowed us to have a great stay on the island. I would highly recommend it.
Квартира Лорены совершенно восхитительна. Это расположено в хорошем месте. Рядом все достопримечательности, супермаркет, рынок и улица с магазинчиками, кафе.
Квартира идеально чистая, со всем необходимым, полностью укомплектована кухня.
Мистер Бруно был восхитителен, он забрал нас с автобусной станции и сделал небольшую экскурсию по Сиракуза и привез нас в квартиру. Мы получили в качестве приветствия бутылку вина, сладости, фрукты (местные апельсины и мандарины - супер), напитки. Это было приятно.
Сиракуза просто прекрасный небольшой уютный городок. Мы были очарованы им.
И кроме того бонусом была прекрасная погода.
Спасибо большое Лорена и мистер Бруно.
И добро пожаловать в Сибирь :).
