Caruso Ortigia Apartments is located in Ortigia, just a few steps away from the Temple of Apollo, the old Ortigia Market, and the sea. It is situated in a characteristic small building from the early 20th century, in the picturesque Graziella neighborhood. This historic fishing district takes its name from the devotion of the seamen to Madonna delle Grazie. The neighborhood was spared from the demolitions during the fascist era, and still retains an urban fabric dating back to the Arabs, with narrow streets and courtyards whose charming labyrinth still serves to mitigate the violence of heat and winds.
Our apartments are perfect for hosting groups of travelers, families, couples, or solo travelers. Caruso Ortigia Apartments offers refined apartments with independent entrance and private bathroom, comfortable and functional, equipped with an autonomous and fully equipped kitchen, flat-screen TV, air conditioning, and free fiber optic WiFi connection. The property is located a five-minute walk from the Talete parking lot.
By staying in our centrally located apartments, you will immediately be immersed in the lively island of Ortigia, just a few meters from the Temple of Apollo, the characteristic fish and local produce market, the Cathedral of Santa Lucia, the Aretusa fountain, and the sea.
