L’Approdo delle Sirene
“Turn right immediately you have crossed the bridge into Ortigia and we are just before the corner”.
The directions to L’Approda delle Sirene were easy to follow.
On the first floor of an old building on the waterfront, this 7 room B&B is in a perfect position.
Our room was light and airy with a view over the water separating Siracusa and Ortigia.
Simply decorated, it has all you will need including wifi and your own Acer notebook.
Breakfast is served upstairs on the roof terrace and often includes a beautiful cake made by Fiora, the owner.
If you book ahead, cooking classes are also available.
