Cirico with private courtyard, typical stone ceiling

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Syracuse, Province of Syracuse, Sicily
Our residence is located in Ortigia island, the old town of Siracusa and world heritage site, in historical building of the 800’, recently restored and returned to all its original splendor. The location is impressive: a few steps from the sea and Aretusa Spring , half way between the Cathedral and Maniace Castle.

“Ciricò”, pride of our home, is a typical Sicilian apartment. The Mediterranean charm is accentuated by the recovery of existing resources in our land: wood and stone are the materials used. Every detail is a tribute to elegance and charm: from the original floors, wooden beams, the stone arches, to the ancient well and the stone oven. A small entrance decorated with period furniture introduces the large vaulted living room: here old and new blend together harmoniously.

The typical kitchen overlooking a courtyard, which with...

We had a lovely week in this characterful and comfortable apartment. It was ideally situated near the sea and near the central area, with good restaurants very close by too. Nevertheless, its location in a narrow side street was quiet and peaceful. Luca was incredibly...More

Siracusa is a great destination. beautiful city, stunning location. Great market and atmosphere. We are more than happy to recommend a stay at any of the Delfatte apartments - we previously stayed in another. Luca was most welcoming, helpful and informative. Ciricao feels like home....More

About the neighbourhood
Syracuse, the most ancient and magnificent of all Mediterranean cities, and former capital of the Magna Graecia, owes its unique charm to the succession of invading civilisations that have conquered it. It is a true melting pot of ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, Norman, Byzantine and Spanish cultures and combines all their styles, tastes and scents. In every corner of the city traces of these ancient civilisations can be seen. A visit to Syracuse is like a journey in time and through history. Added to which is the wonderful coastline and delightful surrounding countryside. You will have the chance to mix art, history, nature and fine food with our warm Sicilian hospitality.

As a visitor to Siracuse, you should first see around the historic city, concentrating on the island of Ortigia, befor...
