The space

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.

Valentina's appartment is cosy, clean, perfectly located not to mention the kindness of her father who allowed us to store our luggages in his other appartment. This was priceless for me. Mille grazie! I would return there anytime. Alina

Really terrific location - right around the corner from all the action! Valentina's father met us to let us in and show us around, and was very nice! Would definitely recommend!

The apartment is in a perfect location to wander the lanes of Ortiga. Its at the door of numerous restaurants and cafes and sits in a beautiful laneway. Paola is a delightful guy who could not be more helpful. Our last few days in Ortiga was the highlight of our time in Sicily.

The place is very scenic and lively. Check-in is accurate and just in-time. If you want to feel Siracusa Valentina's place is a must to stay.

My partner and I stayed at Valentina's place for four nights. The apartment is beautifully designed and has many historical features with a few new, more modern aesthetics. The stairs for example are really cool. However the best feature of the apartment is its location right it the heart of Ortigia, which is one of the most beautiful towns I have ever visited. We were a stones throw away from bars, shops, restaurants and only a short walk to the attractions in Siracusa. All in all a fantastic apartment that is great value. Will be sure to stay again.
