Other Things to Note
Being a historical center on an island, there are not many parking spaces in Ortigia. Therefore it is a restricted traffic area. Evenings, weekends and on public holidays only permanent residents are allowed to access by car. You will know if you amy access by car, when the traffic light at the beginning of Corso Matteotti is green.
Parking is only allowed on the white (free) and blue spots (payment at the ticket machines), yellow is reserved for residents.
The easiest way is to leave your car at the Talete park deck, Lungomare di Levante.
Please do not smoke inside the apartment and use ressources responsibly (switch of the A/C when you're not in the apartment).
- wash dishes and bring out the garbage before you leave
Max and Iris's apartment was perfect for my visit. It is very clean, modern and very close to all the major sites in beautiful Ortiga. The guidebook is very useful for those new to Sicily and both Max and Iris were friendly and helpful during my stay. Highly recommended!
These guys are awesome. Helped us with logistics of getting to/from train station, gave us excellent local advice on food etc, super nice people. We had a great time staying at the studio apartment exploring Siracusa. The apartment is very nice, clean, all good. Location is **amazing**, close to everything.
Avevo già soggiornato in questo appartamento un anno fa e non posso che confermare il giudizio positivo che avevo espresso la prima volta. La posizione è perfetta per visitare Ortigia e la casa è accogliente e pulita, e in una zona tranquilla. Max e Iris sono stati di nuovo di grande aiuto, puntuali nelle comunicazioni e molto disponibili, meritano la massima fiducia!
We had a lovely time in Ortigia. The apartment is really nice. It is big and has everything you need. The bed is excellent so we could have a good nights sleep after the busy days in Ortigia/Syracuse.The only thing that didn't work was the wifi, it was broke. Max gave us directions about where we could park our car for free and picked us up at the entrance in Ortigia and walked us to the apartment. A bottle of wine and water was a welcoming gift. Max is a friendly guest and made us feel welcome in the apartment. The location is perfect: everything is at walking distance!
L'appartement est super beau et idéalement placé sur la presque-île d'Ortygie. Nous sommes arrivés tard dans la soirée et Max était là pour nous donner les clés, nous faire la visite de l'appartement et nous donner tous les renseignements utiles pour notre voyage (restaurants, moyens de transport, commerce à proximité). On le recommande chaudement !
Very accommodating reception, with both water and very good wine as welcome present it was just begin of great stay.
The apartment is at great location and Iris and Max made the stay even better by giving great tips for the visit (where to eat etc.) in a very informative brochure - great idea.
Beds are very comfortable and in this quiet areas we slept very well.

About the Host, Max & Iris
Austrian by origin, Sicilian by choice. I really love Sicily and especially Syracuse: there is history everywhere, the nature (spring!), the sea, the climate.
I love to travel and explore new places. Greece and Thailand hold a special place in my heart. I am interested in history, arts and photography.
I also love outdoor sports and I can tell you all the good places in the area for running, biking and diving. I am a staunched environmentalist - things are not perfect here, but definitely getting better.
I have been working in the travel industry for many years in different countries and different fields. Only recently I have opened my own business as a private travel consultant for tailor made solutions for active tourism in Sicily.
Togehter with my husband Max we manage four properties. Our aim is to offer our guests a nice and comfortable place to stay at affordable rates. We really enjoy working with Airbnb - we have met so many nice and interesting people from all over the world! We love to share our insights, to tell our guest about our favourite places and are happy to help with any kind of information.
