Located in the historic centre of Syracuse, this apartment is a stylish and unique place to stay. It overlooks the Forte Vigliena, an ancient fortress dating back to the Bourbon era – and it also boasts wonderful sea views. There are two balconies for you to admire the sea views from, and you’ll also have access to an internal terrace with garden furniture and plants. We love the simple style of this home, but its location is surely the biggest draw – you’ll only be 10 metres from a sandy beach, after all.
