  • Fantastic! Lovely place, highly recommended, Vittorio was very friendly and helpful. Perfect location

  • We had a wonderful stay at Three Arches recently. We stayed for six nights. The apartment is in a great location - it really is just a few minutes walk to so many amazing places, the piazza Duomo, the sea front ( on both sides of the island!) and the wonderful fish and veg market that takes place every morning. Ortigia is such a beautiful place to stay and three arches is the ideal spot to stay and enjoy the island. Vittorio was an excellent host, he met us when we arrived and told us some good places to eat, visit, beaches, towns etc. but more importantly when we had a problem he was there straight away to help - within 15 minutes of me messaging him to ask about the air con and how to get some heat ( it was a bit chilly at night) he came around and fixed it for us. Whilst we were there a tap broke in the bathroom, again, Vittorio was round in ten minutes. New taps were fitted the same day! He also kindly offered us another apartment, but we wanted to stay at three arches. Vittorio was always easy to get hold of, a really excellent host and we will certainly be back, this is a real find, we both recommend Three Arches and our host Vittorio, thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • We had a great time at Vittorio's place! The location could not have been more perfect if you are interested in exploring scenic Ortigia, the old town of Siracusa. We had a rental car, and the lot in Ortigia where non-residents can park is a short walk to Vittorio's place.

    Vittorio was always very prompt and helpful to communicate with. He met us at the apartment when we arrived and pointed out local highlights for us on a map he provided. We also easily arranged a departure time at our convenience.

    The apartment is on a very picturesque little street, close to restaurants, shops, etc. Our favorite restaurant--La Tavernetta, a homey and delicious spot--was just around the corner. The apartment is quite spacious--lots of room for two adults, and could very comfortably accommodate a family with a couple of children. Nice kitchenette with basic amenities. It was cool weather in Siracusa during our visit, and we were a little chilly in the apartment. I imagine that this would be a big advantage in the hotter summer months.

    Overall, a terrific set-up, friendly host, spacious place, ideal location! Thanks, Vittorio!

  • 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.
    Bello!

  • 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.
