Mai stata in Sicilia e in due giorni mi sono innamorata di Ortigia. E la casa di Vittorio ha contribuito a rendere i miei giorni perfetti. La casa è carinissima, molto pulita e curata, in una viuzza molto caratteristica e in pieno centro. Vittorio è stato gentilissimo e veloce e puntuale nel rispondere a qualsiasi mia domanda.
We had the best time in Vittorio's apartment in Ortigia. Vitttorio was a delight to communicate with throughout, warm and prompt in his replies to any queries we might have. He met us at the apartment and took time to show us the sights and his own recommendations for his immediate neighbourhood off the island or Ortigia as well as the larger area of Syracuse. There is a fantastic local food and fish market where we bought our supplies for a few meals cooked in the well equipped kitchen. The apartment was charming, generously proportioned, and brightly decorated. The area is rich with historical and cultural significance and easy to traverse, as well as being incredibly beautiful. The location of the apartment this ideal, in a small street seconds away from the activity of Ortigia. I would highly recommend staying in Vittorio's delightful apartment in that really special area of Syracuse that is Ortigia.
This was the most delightful apartment and could not have been better located, right in the heart of Ortigia and the lovely pedestrian shopping streets. It is comfortable, quiet and well equipped. Vittorio met us at one of the main gates and walked in front of our car to get us securely to the apartment. He insisted on helping to carry our bags up the stairs, after which he drew all over maps for us and answered every question with attention and thought and helped us get our car securely parked. We absolutely would recommend this apartment with our highest praise.
Nous sommes venus avec nos deux fils visiter Syracuse et nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'appartement de Vittorio. Celui ci est vraiment très bien situé, dans une ruelle tranquille et à la fois tout proche de l'animation et des bons petits restaurants ! Le petit super marché à côté est aussi bien pratique..... L'appartement est confortable et nous n'avons eu aucuns problèmes !
Vittorio's appartment is very central and all refurbished. Vittorio was flexible on the time for us to arrive and leave, and spent time with us to show us around on the map and give us useful advice on the city. Only remark... The appartment only has one room, then the two single beds are in the living room. But you will spend all your time outside discovering Syracusa anyways! Definitely recomend the place. Hugues
Great apartment in the middle of Ortigia!! Vittorio is a great host - quickly responding to emails. The apartment was very large for the area and had everything we would need. The balcony was nice to open up for fresh air and to look out on the tiny street. The rate is also super affordable! We parked in the Talete area, before the blue lines, and didnt pay - dont know if we got lucky or what! Highly recommend the apartment and area.
Vittorio's apartment is fantastically situated in the old city of Siracuse, and easy to find from the bus station. The apartment is full of character. It is spacious, clean and has all the facilities needed to cook, eat, and relax. There are also shops, restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as the harbour, the cathedral square and everything else worth seeing within walking distance.
Vittorio's father met us at the beginning of our 4 day stay, and was very welcoming. We met Vittorio at the end of our stay, and he was also warm and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend this apartment.
We had a lovely stay at this apartment. Vittorio is a helpful and gracious host. The flat is well located and equipped- highly recommended to anybody travelling to Syracuse!
Vittorio's house was in the center of Ortigia island. We were late because of train delayed for couple of hours, but his father was waiting us for check-in.
Room, bathroom, kitchen, livingroom, every place was clean and tidy, good wifi, close to supermaket, beach, sunset point, just perfect location in Siracusa.
For check-out Vittorio came up and we could meet, very nice guy with great smile. Recommendable to anyone staying in Siracusa.
The appartment was exactly like described, everything tidy and clean. Ideal central location
Communication with Vittorio super, key transfer to and from without problems. There are thin and thick bed covers. Be careful not to make contact between the apparment-key and your credit cards (magnetic!). WLAN ok.
Remember that you book an appartment in the middle of the old town where streets are small and you live amidst the urban Ortigian people. Advice for those who arrive by car: street of appartment definetely too small for a car....park near the Postoffice, there are white-lined free parking places (be aware: do not park there at weekend, because the parkingplace turn into a market at weekend) or at Talete Parkhouse or alongside Via Nizza/Via Vittorio Vineto.
Think of moscito Spray, even in November
For those who arrive late and are in need of a fast, good and reasonably priced eating possibility: Taverna Cane di Cavour; Via Cavour 67 (1 minute walk, out of the appartment walk right and then turn next left, 100 m.). Next to it is a small supermarket, open until 22.00h; sundays until 14.00h.
