Honeymoon retreat in the heart of Ortigia
Posted Sep 26, 2015
My wife and I had an amazing stay at B&B La Via della Guidecca, which was the second stop on our honeymoon. The location is perfectly situated in Ortigia, within a short walking distance of all the attractions on the island, and within a few minutes from two incredible rocky beaches. The B&B staff were all super helpful with recommendations for sights/restaurants/excursions and they even helped us research the train/hydrofoil travel to our next destination in Sicily. They also emailed us beforehand to let us know the best way to get to the hotel from Siracusa. The breakfast was delicious, with a wide range of meats, cheeses, fruits, breads, cereal, pastries, and tea/coffee/juices - we always left full and ready for a day of exploring. They even invited us early for breakfast the day we were leaving, so we could catch our morning train. TOP TIP - if it's your honeymoon, tell them! We were upgraded from a double-room to a beautiful suite on the top floor, which was spacious, well decorated, comfortable, and clean. And the views of Ortigia from the large balcony were breathtaking. The air conditioning was also good, which was nice when we returned from a full day of walking around in Sicilian-summer heat. This B&B is HIGHLY recommended.
