The recommended bus company is INTERBUS, but you can also have a look at AST website in case the time table is not matching your needs.

If you can enter into Ortigia island (see CAR section above) it is possible to park the car in the streets around the building, but not in the yellow lines. If you cannot enter it is possible to either park the car for free out of the island (immediately before the bridge) and walk in, or use one of the 3 available toll parking (1 immediately before the bridge, 2 immediately after) which are all at walking distance from the apartment.

The apartment is large, comfortable, clean and in a great location. There's even a pebble beach not 5 minutes from the apartment for an early morning swim. Cesare and his family have been extremely kind and attentive to our needs, really going out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday. Being in a very central area there is often loud music from the street at night (at least in high season), but that's the price to pay for beaing next to the Duomo square. However, the apartment has two bedrooms, and we slept comfortably in the smaller one (furthest from the street). Overall, we can heartily recommend it and we'd surely return if back in Siracusa. ---- L'appartamento è spazioso, pulito e in posizione eccellente, con una cala balneabile a pochi minuti a piedi. Cesare e la sua famiglia sono stati disponibili e gentilissimi, assicurandosi che la nostra vacanza procedesse senza intoppi. Da menzionare che essendo a due passi dalla piazza del Duomo c'è spesso (almeno in alta stagione) musica fino a sera tardi nei locali vicini. Ad ogni modo l'appartamento ha due camere da letto, e noi abbiamo dormito comodamente in quella più distante dalla strada. Appartamento da consigliare, e in cui certamente proveremo a tornare se ritorneremo a Siracusa.

Der var fin kommunikation med Cesare over mail og sms og hans far var meget hjælpsom i forhold til opholdet i lejligheden. Bragte os også kager undervejs.

The host left a little welcome pack of fruit, milk and cookies for us. The apartment was even better than the listing. The rooms were exceptionally well furnished and decorated. The walls were covered with beautiful paintings. It felt as if we were in a chateau. The kitchen was better equipped than my own. The apartment was situated quite close to the seafront. We were within a short distance of many good restaurants and bus stop. We made three visits to the nearby Mariano restaurant, which our host recommended. The food here was beautiful and very reasonably priced. The one drawback to this property is its close proximity to a Cafe Bar, which meant that there was a lot of on-street talking and laughing at night.

We spent a month in the apartment on the first floor of Via Giuseppe Maria Capodieci 45. It is a large comfortable, well-furnished apartment that is very close to the major sights of Ortigia (e.g. Fonte Aretusa, Piazza Duomo, Castello Maniace) but is still located far enough away that you are not bothered by tour groups. There is a small supermarket within walking distance and many restaurants from which to choose. When we had any difficulties, we were ably assisted by Gianluigi, Cesare's brother, and Giovanni, his father. In October, the weather was perfect and when it was hot outside, the air-conditioning inside made it very liveable. We can recommend the apartment unreservedly.

We loved our stay in Cesare's Ortigia home in Sept. Cesare (and his father) made everything very easy for us from start to finish. His home is charming and comfortable. The location is fabulous. In fact, everything about our time in Ortigia was just wonderful. There are two items to be aware of when renting this place. First, while the location is wonderful, it is on a very nighttime noisy mostly pedestrian street. The main bedroom fronts onto the action and can be very loud until past midnight with the windows open. For us, we learned not to mind the noise as it was just part of the local color. Second, the second bedroom is up a somewhat narrow and windy staircase. This, too, was not a problem for us but one should take extra care descending them for that middle-of-the-night bathroom run.

After having lived for awhile in the apartments you see listed on AirBnB, I left my own town to move for professional reasons first to Bologna, then to Lyon, and finally to Brussels where I live since December 2014.

Travelling so much has helped me see the importance of staying in a place that feels like home or at least with a "personal" touch, which I found lacking in many of the hotels I stayed in during my own travels.

Having shared the philosophy of AirBnB since I first discovered it, my goal is to try to create for my guests the experience I would like for myself when travelling.

As I live abroad, I manage all the communication with guests while my family takes care of welcoming them and ensuring their needs are met during their stay.
