Perfect location, perfectly fine

We spent 5 nights in the Porta Marina apartment at the end of February. Two adults and one toddler.
The good points: the apartment is perfectly located, everything is reachable by foot, even the train and bus stations were an easy 20 minute stroll. The fantastic food market and other shops all within 5 minutes, in fact almost anywhere on Ortigia is just a few minutes away (the cathedral, the castle, the fountains and springs). The apartment is on a quiet alleyway with almost no through traffic (ie. mopeds), we got up late every morning because it was so quiet. Everything was clean and tidy, the bed large and comfortable, the shower functional. The apartment was perfect for a toddler, nothing breakable or dangerous within reach, everything on one level, and a baby bed provided (no high chair). We had a friendly welcome.
The not so good points: the apartment is on a small alleyway, so it is a bit dark, but at least for us in a cosy kind of way and the lighting was just right. And the apartment is quite airy, not too well insulated, so a bit fresh at the end of February, but the heating unit easily kept us warm in the main room, only the bathroom with window was cooler. The stone floor was cold but we had slippers with us. All these points probably work in favor as the weather gets hotter. Probably a bit small for 4 adults (in the photos, what you see is what you get), especially cupboard space and the small bathroom. The decor and furnishing is functional rather than luxurious, but more than adequate and with a nice big table.
Altogether recommended as a base for a short break for sightseers, but not the place for people who want to spend time at home.

Ortigia is an island with architectural masterpieces dating from the Greek times on, at the center of a magnificent bay with cliffs and beaches, the natural park of 'Plemmirio'. The nearby area is rich of archaeological, historical sites and natural parks. In Siracuse there is the Greek and Roman archaeological site with a still performing theatre. Going west there is Pantalica, a necropolis of the Bronze Age, located on impressive canyons, and Palazzolo, the inland Greek outpost. To the south there is the 'barocco capital' of Noto, with its magnificent urban views, and the natural park of 'Vendicari', facing the sea, where the natural environment is still untouched. Sea resorts are in 'Fontane Bianche' and 'Arenella', they can be also reached by bus. Main cultural events: in spring the 'classical Greek thetre' and in Summer the 'Ortigia festival'.
