Composed of a large and very well equipped open plan living room/ kitchen, with 2-seater sofa-bed, a double bedroom with en-suite-shower, it is ideal for couples and families with children In the living room we have enhanced the look of those vaults typically found in these noble buildings. The balcony, overlooking the Palazzo Buffardeci, also deserves a particular mention, with its pot-bellied railings, typical of the Baroque period. Ortigia is a small island, historical center of the City of Syracuse. The island has always been a unique destination for travellers and today confirms its absolute authenticity and beauty. The island is the hart of Syracuse, the ideal place to relax in the sea, but also to take a dip in the Sicilian history and gastronomy. Interaction with guests We will be at your disposal to ensure we could transform your holiday in a sensational experience. You will receive all the necessary advises and tips to discover Sicily as a local people do Other things to note Tourist Tax not included (£1,50 per person per night) We can offer the B&B formula, with a continental breakfast served into the nearby Hotel Gargallo for an additional cost of £5 per personMore
