Casa del Forte

Casa del Forte is located in an old fisherman’s house in Ortigia, the old town of Syracuse. Just a few minutes walk from the city beach and at the same time in the middle of the bustling old town streets with its ancient sites, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated on the first floor facing the courtyard, Apartment A features a living room with kitchenette and dining area as well as a bedroom which is separated from the bathroom by a broad marble panel. Colourful accents in the otherwise all-white apartment create a sunny atmosphere, and the blue window frames add to its Mediterranean flair. On the spacious roof terrace — which is shared with the studio B also housed within the building — you’ll find a private seating area just for you. Blue and white wall tiles, a red circle that marks out the outdoor shower, yellow armchairs, a beautiful view of the sea, and the gentle sound of the waves … what more could you possibly want!

What to do

The Casa del Forte is located less than 100 meters from the marina of Ortigia. In the narrow, winding lanes around the (daily) marketplace, you can find wonderful local produce and fresh fish. In 15 to 45 minutes by car you can reach various beautiful beaches in the surrounding area of Syracuse (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
