Fabulous place, stunning views, disabled access
Posted Dec 11, 2014
We decided to stay just outside of Ortygia but within walking distance (about 15-20 minutes) and we made the right choice. Located on a high bluff overlooking the Ionian Sea, the Giuggiulena Villa was the absolutely perfect spot. Our room was spacious, lovely, and most comfortable. Our hosts made sure that all our needs were taken care of , accommodated our rented car right next to the entrance, and spent a good amount of time, reviewing the map of the area to point out the Greek ruins, archeological museum (among the finest I have visited), their favorite restaurants (excellent suggestions) and other points of interest. The breakfast was extraordinary, a buffet fit for royalty. We decided to stay longer and put off leaving Syracusa because we hated to leave. ***Note: For any disabled travelers, this is an ideal place to stay. We ended up in the room designated "disabled" with an accessible balcony and large bathroom and shower, that could be reached by a small elevator from first floor, a rarity among B&Bs in Sicily!
