The
Experience

Wander down to the popular swimming platform (150m): bask on the rocks and splash in the sea. This elevated flat has the old town on one side and the sea on the other.

Giuseppina’s townhouse, Palazzo Colpace, was re-built in the 1800s. Climb three storeys to find your sleek spacious retreat: a spotless sitting room and an excellent kitchen off the hall, and two simple bedrooms with balconies… the smaller one overlooking the sea. Fling open the French windows to the terrace; enjoy an aperitivo in the breeze.

Saunter around the streets of Ortigia, the ancient ‘island’ of Siracusa. The town’s landmarks span from Ancient Greek times to late baroque, and the 18th-century Duomo is a six-minute stroll. Laze by the bars in the harbour, and watch the yachts pass by.

Location

The neighbourhood

The house stands 100m from the amazing cave-like Jewish baths: step back 1,500 years. Ortigia’s restaurants, cafes and treasures are a five-minute stroll, including the cathedral and its attractive piazza. For snorkelling waters, head for Parco Marino Plemmirio (15 km). Closer to home, off the crenellated walls of Forte Vigliena, is a much-loved swimming and sunbathing platform - visible from your terrace.

Local points of interest from Giuseppina Arancio

  • Ortigia has many gems to discover: Piazza Duomo with its ellipytical shape rounded by Baroque "Palazzi", St. Martin church, the Jewish area of Giudecca, Maniace Castle, the underground site, the fish and food market.
  • In the mainland you can visit the archeological park with its unique Greek Theater where every year in May and June Greek tragedies are played.
  • Plays to visit around this area: the ingenious baroque town of Noto whose stone buildings become pinkish at sunset, and the marine reserve area of Plemmirio, the nature reserve of Vendicari with its sunny beaches and the archeological site of Pantalica.
