About the property

Studio near the island of Ortigia

After the experience with 'The delicious house Lilia - Sea and Culture' we decided to create a second studio to offer our guests a warm welcome. The two apartments are close and in the same building. The result is a second nice studio full of all comforts!

The apartment, which sleeps two people has:

Kitchen with ceramic stove, fridge, kettle, crockery etc

Living area with dining table, sofa and TV

Bed area with wardrobe and bed very comfortable.

The bathroom and 'very nice and functional.

The studio is equipped with air conditioning and free access to the Internet via Wifi.

It is located on the first floor of an old building in Corso Umberto, who is one of the main streets of downtown Syracuse. In fact, this road leads to the city center in 10 minutes walk (Ortigia) across a bridge.

Among the main advantages are: ease of parking (the old town is pedestrian), extremely close to the central station and the bus terminal. Located close to major roads to and from Syracuse.

To our guests we can suggest how to rent a bike, how to find a good local restaurant and ice cream parlor.

A few minutes walk there are supermarkets, bars, tobacco, ATM.

A 15-minute walk you can reach the archaeological park.

At 15 meters away there is a SPA for your well being.

Happy holidays

Mark and Lilia

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful little studio apartment with an owner who is a delight! Everything was immaculately clean. It was very easy to find. When driving just head to the train station, from there Marco will help you find your way to the apartment. Great restaurants are close by and all of the major sites are within walking distance. We did not move our car until the day we left. The best part is that you are sleeping in the kitchen (almost) and your husband can easily bring you coffe in bed. We loved our stay and you will as well

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Marco is a warm, hospitable person who treats his guests like family. The apartment includes everything you could want and more. Marco has a talented eye and it shows in the design and decor of the place, including stunning photographs of Siracusa. The location is perfect--right on the doorstep of Ortigia but with easy exit for road trips and a number of good cafes and bakeries steps away. My wife and I would recommend Marco and his apartment very, very enthusiastically!

Perfect Siracusa Visit!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Marco's appartamento is the perfect place to explore Ortigia and Siracusa from. It is a 10 minute walk from L'Isola D'Ortigia, straight down Corso Umberto, and the benefit of staying here is...FREE PARKING!!! The apartment is huge and comfortable with tons of great storage, you can really unpack and unwind here. The neighborhood is cute and safe and quiet. Marco has many perfect suggestions for where to eat (La Tavernetta di Piero), what to do at night (Live Music at Sale), and where to get an apertif, etc. He is a true local and has lots of great ideas for you. He is also a wonderful host and gave us a bottle of sicilian wine and a fully stocked kitchen. We ate lunches at home and saved a lot of money that way. I highly suggest staying at casa vacanze lilia as opposed to staying in Ortigia. So easy and it gets you out into a neighborhood you might not otherwise discover:) Grazie Marco!

Owner's Response: Thank you Maggie Your review is correct. I think the location of the house about 10 minutes walk from the historic center (Ortigia) and free parking are advantages for my guests. Thanks again Marco

a clean and cosy apartment for an excellent break

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is perfect and the apartment gave us a great holiday. It proved a good base to discover Siracusa and Ortigia (Ortigia is just a 15 minute stroll away). The owner made us feel very welcome indeed and provided lots of highly useful information - perfect service! Thoroughly recommended...

ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo

  • 4 of 5

Non distante da Ortigia ( circa 800 metri), vicino alla stazione dei bus, ben collegato con la Siracusa Monumentale e con le zone balneari. Stanza climatizzata con condizionatore ben funzionante che, a minimo, ci ha consentito di riposare nelle calde giornate di fine giugno. Ho molto apprezzato la presenza di un supermercato a pochi metri. Stanza ampia così pure il bagno.

Ein Traum!

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung entsprach in allen Punkten genau der Beschreibung.

Sie war sehr sauber und gemütlich. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet. Das Bad ist sehr modern mit sehr guter Dusche. Außerdem liegt sie in der Nähe der Altstadt, aber auch des Bahnhofs/ Busbahnhofs. Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war unkompliziert und der Vermieter ist ein sehr angenehmer Zeitgenosse. Wir wurden sogar vom Flughafen abgeholt.

Wir würden diese Unterkunft wieder buchen!
