Ortigia - How is this location?

We are thinking of staying near the Southern tip of Ortigia. We will have a baby and strollar and also plan to take day trips to other areas.

1. Can someone tell me how far of a walk this place is to the train station with a strollar

2. Does anyone know if this street has alot of hills, or bustling traffic making it more difficult to push a strollar around?


It is near "via delle sirene" and via salomone.

Ortigia is flat and there is very limited traffic so its fine for a stroller. The walk up to the station is about 1km, also flat but gets increasingly busy the nearer the station you get.

It’s a 20-minute walk from your location to the train station and there are many possible routes on Ortigia, so not a challenge at all since it is flat and you could avoid traffic, but once over the bridge from Ortigia to Siracusa’s mainland, Corso Umberto has traffic, but you would still be able to walk.
