This has been our second year renting in Ortygia but our first time at this apartment. All the reviews who have said that the pictures do not do justice to this wonderful apartment are right. The place was so much more spacious and lovely than what we had imagined. Everything is very new and immaculate in the apartment. We loved the peaceful terrace overlooking the roof tops of Ortigia. We would so look forward to having our breakfast and evening wine on the terrace. The second bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom had doors that led to the terrace making it so nice to have fresh air blowing in all the rooms. All the doors one of which had beautiful glass had an old world charm about them.
The Syraka Apartment is centrally located , but then all of Ortigia is within walking distance to every site. A car is not necessary only a hop, skip and a jump from the open market, which became our second home. You must try the baked ricotta from the new cheese store at the market.
Giorgio and his daughter were so helpful and nice. Giorgio got back to us immediately when we couldn't figure out how to turn the hot water on in the kitchen.
We do not hesitate to recommend the apartment and climbing all those stairs only put us in better shape. After a week of climbing the stairs I felt very fit.
