Syracuse: Holiday homes, holiday apartments and B&B


It is that mix of modern lifestyle and millennia-old culture that makes a stroll through Syracuse and its Old Town a very special experience. For days at the beach we recommend the coastal resorts Ognina and Fontane Bianche.

Holidays at Syracuse: individual holiday homes & holiday apartments with sea view, with and without pool

The city of Syracuse is located in the southeast of Sicily and includes the historic town center (Ortigia) and the new town district. Ortigia, picturesquely situated right at the seaside, on a peninsula, is surely the part of the city which is best-known and most frequented by tourists.

In the course of the city’s millennia-old history, rulers from the Orient and the Occident have left their traces, which are still visible today. It is this fascinating blending of both worlds as well as the impressive Baroque townscape that make Syracuse and Ortigia one of Sicily’s most interesting sights. The city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In ancient times, Syracuse had, for centuries, been the most significant town of the world then known. Even Cicero called it the "the greatest and most beautiful of all Greek towns".

Ortigia: touristic and cultural heart of the city

Ortigia, the "island of quails", is adorned by Baroque palazzi of white limestone, spacious squares and narrow alleys with bars, restaurants and cafes, which mark the face and the atmosphere of this beautiful Old Town.

The cathedral of Santa Maria delle Colonne, which dates from the 7th century AD, rises majestically in the center of Ortigia. Inside you get to admire remains of the Greek Athena temple. The semicircular cathedral square is the touristic heart of the town and surrounded by grand 17th and 18th century palazzi.

Steeped in legend is Ortigia’s "Fonte Aretusa", which you simply cannot miss. It is a fresh water spring right at the seaside and for the old Greeks at the time was a source of drinking water. According to legend, goddess Artemis transformed nymph Arethusa into a spring to protect her from lecherous god Alpheios. The papyrus plants growing from the fountain were the raw material for the manufacture of paper.

At the Greek theater somewhat outside of Syracuse classical tragedies are staged every year.

Our tip: Stop by the market of Ortigia!  

At the market, which takes places every morning from Monday to Saturday, you meet with a symphony of aromas, colors and bustling activity. Apart from grilled peppers and artichokes, Indian figs and tomatoes of varied shapes and colors, offers include fresh-caught fish, mussels and seafood. Of course, there are also quite a number of different kinds of cheese made of goat’s, sheep’s or cow’s milk.

A veritable delight for your senses!

Restaurant tip for your visit to Syracuse

"Le Vin de l'Assassin" – a restaurant which combines Mediterranean specialities and French cuisine and serves veritable culinary delights. Taste the excellent onion soup, the delicious starter puff pastry with aubergines and swordfish or the freshly prepared gilt-head bream, for example.
Address: Via Roma 115, Ortigia Siracusa (Open: daily except Mondays)

Ognina - Idyllic bathing and holiday resort at the seaside

Ognina is only about 10 km from Syracuse and known for its idyllic location and the variety of its underwater world. Snorkelers and divers get their money’s worth in the crystal clear waters and their fill of colorful fish and coral formations.

Access into the sea at the mostly rocky coast is easier at Ognina at a small section of beach with golden-yellow sands.

At a leisurely pace, fishermen start on their daily tours from Ognina’s landing, where you find a bar which is open during the summer months.

Fontane Bianche – Popular seaside resort with a touch of the Caribbean

The beautiful seaside resort of Fontane Bianche is located about 12 kilometers south of Syracuse.

The coast at Fontane Bianche is made up of rocky sections with crystal clear water and light golden sandy beaches. Restaurants, grocery stores and bars are also found at Fontane Bianche.

Combine beach holidays with visits to cultural highlights in the southeast of Sicily. The UNESCO World Heritage listed Baroque town of Noto, for example, one of Sicily’s most beautiful towns, is about 19 km off.
