About the neighbourhood
The island of Ortigia, where more than 1000 years ago settled Greek colonists from Corinth, is today a fascinating maze of streets where the yellow of the sandstone consumed by time and saltiness suddenly stops in intense glimpses of blue. The house is located in the 'market' quarter, overlooking the seafront of Levante, a few steps away from the temple of Apollo In this area, in addition to the market stalls of fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and spices where shopping is a real experience, you can find a wide choice of restaurants where you can try traditional recipes or experiment with a more refined cuisine, or also stop in the historic drugstores to enjoy fish rolls, tasteful stuffed sandwiches and platters of meats and cheeses
Getting around
Made illustrious by the genius of Archimedes, the city of Syracuse still bears the architectural and cultural stratifications of the many peoples who inhabited it. You can easily walk to discover the charm of Ortigia: Piazza Duomo, the elegant stone parlor dominated by the cathedral built on the columns of the temple of Atena, the Miqwè, the ancient Jewish Bath, the mythical Aretusa spring and the Maniace Castle, the extreme tip of the island stretched out towards the Mediterranean sea. By bus reach the Archaeological Park of Nepalis outside Ortigia with its wonderful Greek theater. To explore the gorgeous surroundings and the Val di Noto a car is recommended.
