The apartments are located in a small palace dating back to the 15th century in via dei Cordari, a small pedestrian road very close to Piazza Duomo, Porta Marina and to the sea front. Both apartments have been recently renovated using traditional materials, and retain several old architectural and decorative elements (face exposed arches and niches). The apartments suit perfectly for a comfortable stay in the heart of Ortigia, the historical centre of Siracuse.
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'.
