Interaction with Guests
Guests are welcomed like old friends. I'm glad to help them spend a great vacation. I can tell them where to eat, where to go to sea.
Our neighborhood is called "Borgata", we are in the old part of the city opposite the island of Ortigia, near the small port of Syracuse. Finding parking is very easy, and often you can park near the entrance of the house. Here seems to be in a small town within the city, it can feel the atmosphere and the customs of the old Sicily, and the cost of living is lower than that of Ortigia. From the small port you can find a boat that take you in a few minutes to Ortigia. You can easily go to Ortigia on foot or by bicycle or with a mini bus. We are also close to the archaeological site, where in May and June you can watch the ancient tragedies staged in the theater greek. At 10 meters from the house you can pray in the place of the miracle of the Madonna of the tears. Nearby there are pizzerias, restaurants, bars, ice-cream shops, take-aways, pubs, gyms, pharmacies, mini-market, shops.
The sea is just 200 meters. Near the house there are areas equipped for bathing. With a walk of a few minutes you can reach the areas of tourist interest, the railway station and the bus station for suburban and beaches. A cycle path begins 150 meters from our house and has about 6 km of gravel road near the sea.

We enjoyed our stay at Salvo's place a lot. The appartment is quite small, but does have everything to offer what you need when (sight)seeing the city. Salvo gave us a map and soms directions to go to, we really appreciated that.
The bikes which are included are a really nice welcome to have, and we used them almost everyday. Ortigia is a 5 min ride, and also the archeological site is about 5 minutes. The small place outside is nice to sit, and is nice for having breakfast. It can get a bit noisy from the shouting neighbours, but that's just part of the charm!
He is a very nice person. Salvo drove to the station to meet us, we take the time he drove us to the station. Very pleased to meet him. Tell us about the living environment nearby. But Wi-Fi signal is not good in the house.
It's a little apartment behind the house of Salvo. But the courtyard is very nice for eating. It's just ten minutes of walk to the island. But there was a strange smell in the apartment, maybe it's because the kitchen is just beside the bed, and there is no flow of air. Salvo is nice, and we can hear his family singing sometimes :)
Salvo was absolutely fabulous! He and his girlfriend met me at the station and took me to the apartment. The apartment is situated within walking distance of both Ortigia and the Greek theatre. I was only there for 1 day and managed to do most by foot.
Apartment is cute and perfectly formed though there is a noise from the neighbours as the apartment is in a courtyard.
Salvo not only agreed to an early check-out, as I was travelling to Palermo, but even offered for take me to the bus stop. Would highly recommend!
Excellent accueil de Salvo et son épouse pour que nous sentions trés bien. Le logement est vraiment mignon et très fonctionnel. Quelle détente de manger dans la cour intérieure. De plus des vélos sont mis à disposition. On regrette de ne pas avoir pu rester plus longtemps. Merci beaucoup Salvo.
situé dans la ville de syracuse a environ 10 minutes à pied de l'ile d'ortega (quartier sans charme) le studio est assez petit et sombre (pas de fenetre) avec un coin kitchenette dissumulé. la salle de bain est assez grande. c'est suffisant pour 1 ou 2 nuits mais pas beaucoup plus. nous y étions en avril donc pas de probleme de chaleur.
il y a une petite cour interieure pour dejeuner c'est assez agréable.
Salvo et sa femme habitent juste a coté donc c'est assez pratique pour echanger et profiter de leurs conseils. Ils nous ont prété 2 vélos pour nous rendre a une plage a 12km et c'était tres sympa.
De locatie, het rondleiden van Salvo, het bed en het gebruik van de fietsen, prima.
Maar het luide geruzie van de bovenburen, en de kakkerlakken in de badkamer maakten het een stuk minder
