Come for the location. Siracusa is one of the most important historical towns in Italy. Landmarks span from ancient Greece to late baroque, the sum of which is the cathedral in the centre of Ortigia, built over a Greek temple with huge Doric columns. You won’t need a car; stroll to shops and restaurants, sunbathe and dive from rocks into the sea. Your apartments can be reached from the seafront promenade or through the intricate streets and alleys which you can lose yourself in – rather fun! Each is a mix of old and new, not state of the art but comfortable and spotless with air conditioning and kitchenettes with all you need for holiday cooking. Friendly owner Giuseppina (a teacher) lives on the top floor and is there to help you with suggestions about eating and exploring; she also gives her guests a shared sea-facing terrace which is truly lovely. From here you can be braced by the sea air while enjoying breakfast or having a glass of wine. This won’t suit people who are looking for a swish, formal place to stay but it’s a great base for some stunning places to visit.

lovely apartment, a real cosy snug for 2! its on the quiet side of Ortygia, but just a few minutes walk from all the sights and plenty of restaurants. So the best of both worlds. Giuseppina made us feel very welcome and had great suggestions on local places to eat etc.

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment we stayed in is well appointed. There is a bedroom upstairs with a small bathroom, and the main bathroom, kitchnette and living room are downstairs. The front door opens to the charming street, and the back door opens to a small patio from which one can climb a spiral staircase to another patio with a view of the Ionian Sea. Sea access is a short walk away down some steps to a wooden platform, from which more steps lead into the water. Giuseppina was charming, informative and always ready to help.

I felt very much at home at Giuseppina’s. Everything was spotless. The comfortable bedroom has its own air condition/ heating. There is also a small bathroom next to it. The living area and kitchen give to the courtyard and the shared terrace with a fantastic sea view. There is another bathroom with a big shower, good quality towels and organic toiletries. The kitchen is well equipped, but with so many restaurants for all budgets around I did not use it that much. The WiFi connection worked very well. Giuseppina booked me a safe parking for my car in a garage 2 min walk from the house.
