Cute, beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We had a bit of a rocky start in getting things (electronically) to work properly (hair drying wasn't hooked up, iron plug wouldn't work) but it all evened out. The apartment is cute and the winding staircase good and sturdy. It's too bad there isn't room for a small sofa or loveseat instead of the two chairs. (But I tend to redecorate in my mind no matter where I go.)

With Google Earth it was easy to find where to pick up the keys and how to get to the apartment.

I did add a few things to the apt, like a nice big mug and a larger coffee pot (I'm afraid that's a United States thing, we like big mugs of coffee) and a couple dish towels (no one ever seems to have dish towels) and new scrubbers. I don't care to use the scrubbers from the last tenant, but that's just me.

Things were okay but eventually I kept having trouble with the heating system and I'm afraid I left half way through my stay and checked into a hotel. The owners worked a bit on the system and we thought it was just that the batteries were dying. I bought new batteries and things seemed to be okay but then it got goofy again. I knew that the owner had a different apt. right next to this one but I'm afraid I decided I wanted the comfort of a hotel instead. Hopefully all is working well now.

Sea views, restaurants and all sites steps away

  • 5 of 5

The apartment couldn't have been easier to find, just a few minutes' walk from the electric bus stop at the Fontana Aretusa, one of the main piazzas of Ortigia. Checking in, and getting info for the apt. from the very friendly V. at the Hotel Mediterraneo in Syracuse was easy. The only tricky part was our heavy, wheeling suitcase and the warm June day. Once there, we were relaxed and relieved to be in such a beautiful place, filled with history and art.

The apartment itself is small, as shown, but perfectly adequate for a couple (and our small, 5 lb. dog). There is a nice balcony which you can step up into from the kitchen which fits one chair (since the air conditioner unit takes up some space on half of it). It overlooks the bay as well as all the restaurants under the apt. on the lungomare. The TV and wifi works perfectly well (something that didn't work so well at all during our stay in a similar apt in Cefalu last year).

The bathroom and shower are fine, and there's even a bidet and hairdryer. The kitchen only has two electric burners, a tall mini fridge and a microwave, but it works well enough to cook simple meals or do lunch and breakfast at home. Since Ortigia has such a great daily fresh market of fish, meats, cheese, vegetables and fruits to discover, it would be a shame to do every meal in a restaurant.

The apartment was neat and pretty clean, and the apartment building was quiet. The only "noise" we heard during our stay was on the last Friday night. Since the apt. is right on the lungomare and next to a busy, small piazza where teens gather to meet each night, that one Friday was a bit loud with kids in groups. However, we had left the window open onto the street for air. If you close it and put the a/c on, the noise wouldn't have been noticeable. Since we live in NYC, we are used to such city sounds.

Tourist hint: do rent a bike! There's a print shop right near the architecture school around the corner by the castle that rents bikes for around 10 euro a day. Also, go down to the marina and rent a boat (if you know how to drive one). It's a great way to see the full coast around Ortigia and Siracuse and the villas and rugged coast across the sea at the Peninsula Maddalena.
