Rooms were clean, breakfast was great, wifi worked amazingly, but the best thing was easily the owner. She made me feel right at home. She told me how to get to all the sights, asked when I wanted breakfast and what kind of croissant I'd like (there's other stuff too), and was all around amazing and helpful. Definitely stay here...

It was a very lucky coincidence for us that we found this place. The B&B is very comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. It feels like home, the staff is very friendly and we loved the fresh croissants and for breakfast!

This B&B is very well located with most of the historical attractions within a 10 minute walk. The rooms are basic, but very comfortable and clean. Teresa is lovely and so helpful and friendly and made us feel at home.

Very good location, very central between Ortygia and newer part. Teresa is an amazing hosts, she definitely goes the extra mile to make sure all guests are happy. Highly recommended, my favourite B&B in Sicily!

The location is very good (10 min walk from Ortigia and from Archeological park). The people are nice, but the furniture is old and the room not so fresh. The rooms are not as beautiful as shown on the pictures. There is no parking. Breakfast is ok.

We were very lucky to find this charming and cosy B&B, and get a gorgeous double bed room for a very reasonable price. The B&B is located in the city centre of Syracuse, it's very close to Ortigia (10-15 min walk) where all of the historical buildings, markets and piazzas that one must visit are located. Antonio and his mom... More

I just came back from a 10 stay in La terra di Siracusa and I am absolutely impressed. The place is great- it immediately makes you feel home. Teresa, the owner, is a fantastic lady, very warm, sweet, super helpful. The place is very strategic- close to all the attractions, including Ortygia, the theatre, the museum etc. It is clean,...

The owner of this B+B was very helpful to me during my stay and I really enjoyed my visit. The room was very good value, especially compared to other places situated in Ortigia itself . (Actually it is quite an easy walk to Ortigia, armed with a street-plan.)

My plans for Sicily changed so I had to book a single room and save costs and found this place on Hostelworld. I didn't realise it was a short distance to the station so the taxi driver tried to rip me off so I gave him seven euros to shut him up and he disappeared when I mentioned "Polizei". The... More

Very good place to stay, it made us feel at home. Rich breakfast (we would recommend the ricotta cornetto and local orange juice). Although not at Ortigia, B&B La Terra di Archimede is excellent located; at a stroll of the Greek amphitheater, the must-visit: Madonna delle Lacrime and Ortigia of course. Cheap, typical Italian, but good pizzeria's (like Forestiero) around... More
