Rental Home
vintage apartment on the second floor of a 1923 building overlooking the Grand Harbor of Syracuse. We are in the heart of the historical center of Syracuse and the house has the great advantage of being halfway between the island of Ortigia and the archaeological zone (Greek theater, Roman amphitheater, etc.), so that absolutely must not use any means of transport to get both of these centers of historical, natural and cultural. Another important feature is that two balconies and two windows of the apartment have a view of the Grand Harbor of Syracuse, body of water where in 212 BC, during the Siege of Syracuse, Archimedes used burning mirrors to burn and destroy Roman ships. Just outside the door, in fact, just cross a road and you are in the touristic port and the great St. Anthony parki...vintage apartment on the second floor of a 1923 building overlooking the Grand Harbor of Syracuse.

This was one of the best apartment rentals I've ever had. The kitchen and living space make you feel like you are home and the owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome. If I return, this is where I will stay.
