Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel
What a fantastic place to start your vacation in Sicily. The beautiful old city of Syracuse is full of charm and character and we quickly found ourselves exploring its winding old streets. The Algila Ortgiga Charme Hotel is located right in the old part of the city and is perfectly located to use as a base for exploring.
Set on Ortigia Island overlooking the Ionian Sea, Algilà Ortigia Charme is right on the seafront. It features elegant, air-conditioned rooms equipped with antique furnishings from the 1700s. Some rooms boast wood-beamed ceilings or a four-poster bed.
Breakfast is buffet style, and includes Sicilian specialties such as organic marmalades. The restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine with seafood specialties and a choice of gluten-free meals.
To explore, you can enjoy their free bike service.
Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel is 5 minute walk from Siracusa Cathedral and half a mile from Castello Maniace. The ancient Greek amphitheatre is 10 minutes away by car.
Sicily has a mild climate that makes it an attractive destination for much of the year: spring and autumn are sheer delight and though high summer temperatures really do soar, sea breezes in coastal areas take the edge off the heat.
Sicily is one of the world’s most captivating places: with ever-present scent of lemon trees, purity of dawn light on terracotta walls, colorful decrepitude of Palermo’s markets, drama of Stromboli erupting against a darkening sky, sense that history lurks always just around the next corner, reflective marble glow of late-night Ortygia and Marsala streets, the lonely majesty of Segesta, exotic flavors of Sicilian food and island’s endless cultural complexities.
