Vik and his apartment were wonderful! We were sad that we were not able to meet Vik in person - he was out of town - but he arranged for us to meet his father, Jose, to get the keys and an introduction to the apartment. Vik was amazingly available via WhatsApp or airbnb text/email - for example, when we arrived the wifi wasn't working properly but within 5 minutes, with Vik's help, we had the issue resolved. Vik/Jose provided us with a wonderfully detailed map of the island which we carried with us everywhere - this was extremely helpful as our maps were not this detailed and Ortigia is a lovely little labyrinth of tiny little streets that a regular map might have missed. Vik informed us that the apartment we originally booked was unavailable just a few days before our arrival, however, he accommodated us in a different, nicer apartment that he provided us with for the same fee. The apartment we stayed in (The Docking House), was perfect - large, spotlessly clean, modern conveniences, quiet, and a PERFECT location (though to be honest, Ortigia is so small, any location on the island would be perfect!). We were bummed that the weather wasn't nicer - there are two lovely little balconies that in warmer weather, would be fantastic to open. And Ortigia . . . I miss it! The island is a perfect home base for exploration of southeastern Sicily - we stayed for 4 nights and did day trips to Noto, the archaeological sights in Siracusa, and a day exploring the lovely little island. There is a taxi stand just a few blocks from the apartment, though they are expensive and there is a bus/train station just at 10-15 min walk across the bridge to the mainland for regional travel, while local buses to the archeaological sites in Siracusa are available right by the taxi stands just a few blocks away. The food is out of this world - please eat at Osteria d'Seby and O'Scina and you absolutely must go to the market and do not miss the best cheese you'll ever eat at Borderi cheese shop (warning - they will give you so many free samples that you will not be able to eat the rest of the day). I can't say enough good things about Vik, his apartment, and Ortigia. Enjoy!
Das Appartement war superschön, sehr liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet...es hat nichts gefehlt! Die Lage in Ortigia ist einfach perfekt und wir haben jeden einzelnen Tag dort genossen. Die Kommunikation mit Vittorio hat super funktioniert, leider haben wir ihn erst am Abreisetag kennengelernt, dafür durften wir seinen Vater kennenlernen, der uns trotz sehr später Stunde (unser Flug hatte Verspätung) noch die Schlüssel übergeben hat und sogar das Gepäck die Treppen hinaufgetragen hat. Dafür nochmals danke!:-)
After an initial "communication break down" we were eventually relocated to different accommodation.
This was extremely modern, comfortable, clean and well equipped and on the opposite side of Ortigia.
Vittorio was very attentive and helpful, offering tourist advice and general information.
It is hard to imagine a better holiday than we had at Vittorio's. Thank you. I would only dream of returning to Syracuse as soon as possible after we stayed at this wonderful apartment. Hope we will do it very soon. Thank you so much!
Vittorio was an excellent host who put up with us getting lost and not being able to find the names of places we were to meet. He explained where everything was and provided us with a map on which he marked restaurants and places of interest. The unit was very comfortable for the two of us and we were able to walk quite easily all around Ortigia from there. I would highly recommend this unit and Vittorio for anyone visiting Ortigia and or Syracuse-- and I would highly recommend visiting Ortigia
Très bon accueil de Vittorio . Se rend disponible.
Emplacement idéal a Syracuse et vivre comme les siciliens !!!
Un petit supermarché se situe a 50 m. Idéal.
Appartement avec beaucoup de charme.
Ottima location, comoda per raggiungere il centro (via Cavour, Duomo, etc) e anche per parcheggiare (nella piazza antistante il tempio di Apollo, rigorosamente dove sono le strisce bianche!). Host decisamente ospitale, buona la pulizia e la flessibilità. Forse da rinnovare la doccia.
Soluzione nel complesso stra-consigliata.
