After 3 days exploring Syracuse, I felt sorry for anyone who was NOT staying in Linda's apartment. The location is perfect and Linda has done everything possible to make it a comfortable home-away-from-home. I've stayed at a lot of Airbnb apartments and this was the best equipped:
* Anything you could want in the kitchen (good knives, cookware, spices) and a 4 burner gas stove.
* A comfortably-sized bathroom with shampoo, soaps, lots of towels and hairdryer).
* A lovely bedroom with sea view (across a road) with a comfortable bed, nice selection of pillows.
* The apartment was immaculately clean.
* Everything, including the high speed wifi, worked perfectly.
* I didn't use the TV or the bike, but they were there and I have no doubt they worked perfectly given the great condition of everything else.
Did I mention the location??? The apartment is in a delightful neighborhood within an easy walk of everything you would want to see. The neighbors are friendly.
Linda and/or Bruno provided transportation to and from the bus station, which was lovely.
I would definitely come back and recommend it to my friends.
The only caveat (and it's a small one), is that there is some traffic noise because there is a street on either side. However, there is not a lot of traffic and it is very quiet overnight. I'm a light sleeper and I slept like a rock.
We had a very nice stay in Linda's apartment. Linda's partner picked us up from the bus station and drove us to the apartment where Linda welcomed us and explained the practical details. The apartment is actually much nicer than on the pictures! It also felt so soothing to hear the sea from the sleeping room and be in the heart of a place with multi-millennial history. Also, all those little details that make one's stay so nice : Linda thought about mineral water, milk, tea (green and black!), coffee, pasta, spices, etc. We had a nice ride on the bikes too. We highly recommend Linda as a host and the apartment for a lovely stay in Syracuse and would like to thank Linda for her kindness and generosity.
The most wonderful experience using Airbnb . Linda remained in contact when the enquiry was made and was super helpful with information regarding the apartment and how to get there especially with the car parking situation.
The apartment itself was immaculate, clean and in the best location imaginable. The fact that there were bikes to be used and super fast WiFi was such an added bonus. Location iswrfdect and so easy to get around
Linda and Bruno were the best hosts and their hospitality was unbelievable and so kind. They provided lots of great information about ortigia places to visit , restaurants to eat and took me to one of the best places to eat in Sicily. Linda and bruno are such amazing and kind people who went out of their way to make me feel welcome.Can truely say the best place I have ever stayed using Airbnb . I will definitely be returning and have recommended to friends who are coming out next year
We had a wonderful stay at this charming and spacious flat in Ortigia. Linda and Bruno are terrific hosts and have provided everything you need for a great stay. The apartment is well furnished, everything is clean, works well and is in good condition. The neighborhood is wonderful too—close to everything without being too busy or noisy. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly and Sky TV was a fun diversion—now we are hooked on the series, Borgia. The only thing that would have made this visit better is if we could have stayed longer—4 nights was too short for us. Ortigia has many great little restaurants, snack shops and cafes that we would have enjoyed visiting. We also loved the produce market and especially Fratelli Burgio salumeria at the end of the market. Ortigia is a great destination and this apartment was just perfect for us.
We loved our stay here in every way. The flat is extremely comfortable and well equipped. It is thoughtfully organised and has two comfortable bikes which we found very useful. One of the nicest things is the location, right by the water and the swimming platform, and just a little away from the most touristy parts of Ortigia (not that they are offensive in any way, and it takes a few minutes from the flat to the 'centre' of Ortigia. Linda and Bruno were very helpful, picked us up from bus and organised a taxi to airport shuttle.
Linda and her husband, Bruno, made us very welcome. The apartment is true to description and within easy walking distance to local shop, cafés and restaurants. The locals also made us feel welcome wherever we were in Ortigia and we hope to visit again in the future. Everything was available for us in the apartment and it was a pleasure to stay. We will definitely recommend to friends. Thank you again Linda and Bruno.
You couldn't ask for a more friendly and kind couple. Linda and Bruno (Who is a hilarious Sicilian) were extremely accommodating, they collected me to take me to the apartment and dropped me off to catch my bus at the end of my stay.
The apartment was just perfect, as a single female I found it was safe and in a perfect position. Five seconds to the beach and seven mins walk to the Duomo where all the action is happening for restaurants and shopping.
The apartment has everything to make your stay comfortable, air conditioning, very fast WiFi and Sky TV if your just wanted to chill out. The kitchen is well equipped for you to be able to cook your own meals and the market is super close. Linda and Bruno had kindly left pasta and water and little treats for my arrival.
I would highly recommend this apartment, I fell in love with this little town and I will definitely be coming back.
Thanks again Linda and Bruno, it’s the little things that make the difference to a foreign traveller and you made my stay a very enjoyable one. X X

I am originally from the United States living now in europe for over 10 years -most of that time in Sicily. My husband was born and raised in Siracusa. We split our time between Noto and our other home in Ortigia. Between us we speak English,Italian,Sicilian,French,and basic Greek
