Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

This ground-floor apartment is an ideal base for a small family or group of friends on a Syracuse stay. Sure, it’s fairly fuss-free in style, and we think the kitchen is best suited to whipping up light bites, but this home’s all about the location for us. Dining out is a breeze with an abundance of eateries nearby, and Ortigia market is a must-visit. The Temple of Apollo is a stone’s throw away, or venture further south to discover the Cathedral of Syracuse, the Fountain of Diana, and Cala Rossa beach.

Home truths

    You won't find an oven here – though there is a hob. We think the kitchen is better suited to prepping lighter bites than large meals.

    The bathrooms in this home are very small. That said, they have everything you need to get ready for the day.

    This home is located within an apartment building, with a shared entrance. Expect to bump into other guests during your stay.

    Given the home's central spot, expect to hear some street noise throughout your stay.
