Overview

About the property

Ideally located.

The property is in fact the heart of Saint Lucia (A bugged in Syracuse), is the name of the second division and what is considered the second historic district of Syracuse historically also known as Borgata.

The neighborhood has emerged in the second half of the nineteenth century began when the expansion of urban development to the north of the city. The name derives from the formation of neighborhood houses then inhabited by the emerging middle class who followed a checkerboard pattern.

The main monument of the neighborhood is the church of Saint Lucia to the tomb outside the walls, in the square where the legend took place the martyrdom of Saint Lucia (thus explaining the name of the second quarter), which is why on December 13 of each year Luciani becomes the epicenter of the festivities, at the height of the long procession started from the Cathedral. The statue of the patron saint remains there for a week until the date of 20 December the eighth.

Here you can easily find free parking, in a few minutes walk to the island of Ortigia, as well as the archaeological area of Syracuse (Greek, Roman Amphitheatre, Ear of Dionysius). Nearby attractions include the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Tears, S. John to the Catacombs, the museum Paolo Orsi, and several beaches of sand or stones. The marina of the same name, you can also take boat trips.

The district is provided with every type of commercial service.

"We stayed in the apartme...

  • 5 of 5

"We stayed in the apartment for 2 days and absolutely loved it. It is located on the third floor on Via Sollecito Fratelli overlooking lovely Piazza St Lucia. There is plenty of free parking space outside which came in handy although driving in Syracusa is a bit crazy. The apartment is massive – we only used one double bedroom and it was more than sufficient for our needs. It is designed for a couple or a large family who are looking for peace, quiet and privacy. It is conveniently located just a few steps away from the historical centre (10 -15 mins on foot) and archaeological site (15 mins on foot) and within a walking distance to the nearest bakery and grocery shops.

The bedroom was incredibly spacious and clean with a retro decor, a comfortable double bed and air con. The kitchen and bathroom were extremely well-equipped: I loved the sci-fi shower. There is even a washing machine in the top floor storage room which came in handy! Having arrived with stacks of dirty laundry, we left with a neatly packed suitacase of clean clothes! This was a real treat! In the kitchen we found everything we could possibly imagine – pots and pans, a coffee maker and all of the utensils one can imagine. Funnily enough, we only prepared breakfast and ate out in the evenings. The owner Salvatore was delightful. Although we did not speak Italian and Salvatore did not speak much English, we managed to communicate. He was very kind and helpful and gave us a number of tips on where to go and what to see. I cannot thank him enough for his hospitality and kindness. He made our stay in Syracusa one of the best experiences in Sicily. In my view, the apartment is perfect as a romantic getaway for a couple looking for peace, privacy and comfort! Well done to Salvatore!"

Appartamento baricentrico ai siti più importanti

  • 4 of 5

L'appartamento è in posizione perfetta per visitare comodamente a piedi tutti i siti più importanti di Siracusa. Molto ampio con dotazione di utensili e stoviglie. Si nota una particolare predisposizione del proprietario alla tecnologia di cui si gode con piacere. Non è presente l'ascensore e questo crea non poche difficoltà nella salita. La seconda stanza da letto non è climatizzata: da considerare nelle stagioni molto calde. Molto gentile e premurosa la mamma del proprietario.

syracuse for ever

  • 5 of 5

Très bon moment passé dans le quartier de Santa Lucia.

Le marché du dimanche est vivant...en dix minutes on se retrouve dans ortigia,les monuments antiques sont proches et ...... la belle Syracuse s'ouvre à nous...

L'appartement est confortable, nos enfants et nous nous y sommes sentis très bien. Le troisième étage donne accès à une terrasse ce qui est agréable.

Salvatore vous accueillera sympathiquement.
