Ortigia, Sicily 2 BR, 2 BA


100+ Posts
This is a sea-facing apartment in Ortigia, the lovely old part of Syracusa. You enter from the street into a courtyard, then up a flight of stone steps to the apartment. Large living/dining room with comfortable furnishings and a window with Juliet balcony overlooking the street and the sea; and a quite well equipped kitchen beyond. Up a flight of slate stairs (no handrails for the bottom few steps) are two double bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom has a grilled door opening on to the tiled stairway leading up to the best feature, a terrace overlooking the sea. Note that the bedrooms are rather dark with no view, but that didn't bother us at all as we spent so much time up on the terrace.

About a five minute walk to the main Piazza; and about 10-15 minute walk to the morning Market. Many shops and restaurants around

The owner lives elsewhre, but there is a very responsive local keyholder. We had a plumbing issue one day which was resolved within hours. We reserved a parking space in a nearby garage through the owner, a 2-minute walk from the apartment.
