This is THE place to stay in Ortigia if you are traveling with a group of four or more! Large, comfortable, incredible location. Perfect for longer stays with great kitchen and laundry and two bathrooms! Highly recommended.

The location was fantastic - right in the most beautiful spot of Ortigia. The living room window opened right onto a beautiful fountain. The apartment had a lot of character! Lovely floors, shutters, doors and walls. We had 7 people and fit comfortably. There were 2 bathrooms but only one shower which was fine. You could hear the neighbours at night / early in the morning but this is to be expected and it didn't bother us. This was a great base for our group and I would recommend it. A great stay overall!

The apartment is very well located at the entry of Ortygie (old Syracuse). You have a direct view on the port and you can park for free your car just in front of the house. The apartment is really big and you can easily sleep at 8. All equipment is on it with all kitchen facilities and a mobil gaz heater that can be very useful when weather is cold. One big bathroom with toilets and a separate toilet. The area is full of shops and the apartment is just below a bars then it is a bit noisy at night but it's closing quite early. The apartment was very clean. We really enjoy our stay.

Giorgio and Angela were extremely kind. The apartment is large, and has four rooms, it is perfectly located in Ortigia, and has a marvelous view of the sea canal between Siracusa and Ortigia. We only miss a microwave owen, but everything else was perfect. A couple of little domestic problems were promptly solved by Giorgio.

This was a great place to stay, right at the entrance to Ortigia with nearby markets, harbor, cafes, restaurants. The atmosphere was lively but not excessively noisy. It was perfect for making excursions into either Ortigia or the main town of Siracusa, and parking in front also made it easy to head out of town to see surrounding attractions like Scicli, Noto, the Necropoli (not to be missed). The flat itself is spacious, with four bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, big living room and lots of windows that opened on to great views. You get the picture. It is highly recommended. If you are looking for a dead quiet place to stay this is not it. It is the midst of all the things that make a vacation interesting - lively markets, cafes, restaurants. But we were there in off-season (late November) and did not find the ambient sounds a problem at all. They just made us want to go out exploring. I did use earplugs, though, because my room was at the front of the building and above a bustling cafe (which, by the way, has wifi - nudge, nudge, wink, wink). I have stayed in many great AirBnB flats, but this may well top this list. Finally, Giorgio's parents Angela and Carmelo were lovely and kind. They were there to greet us on arrival (even though we were about an hour late) and made us feel incredibly welcome. Angela speaks perfect English and said they would be available for anything we needed. Because the flat was so well equipped, we didn't need to contact them (by the way, the broom and dustpan are on the balcony off the kitchen), but appreciated their
