This tastefully decorated apartment modern located in the heart of the island of Ortigia, the historical center of the city of Syracuse. The apartment is on the ground floor of a historic building on Crocifisso Street, a street close to the picturesque Cathedral Square and other tourist attractions. The total area is about 60 m2 . It is an open space with some special architectural elements , including the staircase to the loft bedroom is via steps 40 cm high , not suitable for people with mobility problems. The apartment has a large living room with sofa bed, dining table, kitchen, bathroom with shower and apart, toilet with bidet. The island of Ortigia is connected to the city of Syracuse with a bridge and has at its entrance a large covered car park (called TALETE) very cheap and useful, allowing you to leave your car and reach the heart of the island (where the home is located) in less than 10 minutes by foot. However, in the streets of Ortigia you can park your car while respecting the signs and municipal rules. For those arriving from Catania airport it's possible to go to Syracuse by bus service and the terminus is just a few hundred meters from the island of Ortigia. The advantage of staying in this open space is that it is located in the heart of the island , in one of the most famous and popular streets, a step away from all the restaurants, tourist shops and only 200 meters from the rocky beach ( solarium ) formed from wooden platforms mounted on the rocks for a fast swim without leaving the city life.
