Stella in Ortigia This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Apartments in Sicily in Siracusa

Description

Live like a Sicilian in this romantic one-bedroom duplex with a fabulous terrace, set in an aristocratic palazzo. Wander through the city’s narrow lanes and alleyways, uncover layer upon layer of fascinating history, and take time out to soak up the sun on one of the local beaches. The apartment is conveniently situated close to the main public car park at the entrance to the baroque island of Ortigia, the historic centre of Syracuse.

The apartment entrance is on the first floor of the palazzo, accessed via a classic marble-stepped staircase. The first floor of the duplex houses the bedroom, with a double bed and a double sofa bed suitable for 2 children, and bathroom (with shower).

An internal staircase leads up to the simply furnished, contemporary open plan living room, with a double sofa, on the second floor. At the far end of the room, the kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, including a microwave and dishwasher, and small dining table. The washing machine is in a separate toilet. Step straight out on to a spacious roof terrace, fitted out with comfy chairs, sunbeds, a BBQ and dining table, ready to dine alfresco or just relax back and gaze out over the city below.

The area

Stella in Ortigia’s location, close to the Talete car park at the entrance to Ortigia, is ideal if you’re picking up a car on arrival in Sicily. As Ortigia is a traffic limited zone closed to non-residents, all visitors to the tiny island leave their cars here before making their way to their accommodation.

Syracuse is one of those much sought-after cities where you can intersperse city sightseeing with on-the-beach relaxation. Plan your time carefully to fit in visits to the enthralling Archaeological Park, home to a 5th century BC Greek Theatre and a Roman Amphitheatre, the Duomo and the Church of Santa Lucia alla Badia which houses Caravaggio’s the Burial of Saint Lucy. But leave time also for leisurely wandering, through the picturesque Jewish quarter (Giudecca), along the Lungomare, and through the colourful Mercato di Ortigia where you can pick up local specialities such as pistachios from Bronte.

If you have time to venture beyond Syracuse, hop in your car and head for the architectural treasures of Noto, or, a little further away, the magnificent UNESCO heritage towns of Scicli, Modica and Ragusa.

When you’ve absorbed as much history and culture as you can, make tracks for one of Ortigia’s sundecks to soak up the sun and swim, or head south to the beaches at Arenella, Fontane Bianche or the more remote shores of the Vendicari Nature Reserve.
