Such a lovely apartment in the most beautiful area of Ortigia. From the moment we arrived Mariella was the perfect hostess. The flat is in an amazing older building just steps away from the sea. I absolutely loved Mariella's decorating, it lives up to it's name, elegante. The kitchen is large with everything you need. The cooking and sink area are a bit small but manageable for simple meals. The location is perfect, very quiet but within walking distance to everything. We had one minor issue with the older plumbing but Mariella was quick to address the problem. Milko was also helpful in steering us towards some good restaurants.
One thing I had some issues with had nothing to do with the apartment but with Siracusa in general. The tourist infrastructure is sorely lacking, we had a very hard time finding information about tours, local sites, public transportation, etc.
