Aretusa Vacanze is a fantastic BnB. The location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle but 2 mins walk from the main attractions. All the staff have been so kind and helpful, they went out of their way to help track down our lost baggage. The breakfasts up on the terrace were really really good, they even had gluten...

Nice B&B in Ortigia with comfortable rooms, nice well-equipped kitchen(we ate out), bedroom with adequate space for 2 single beds for my son and I, and lovely bathroom fully equipped with sink, shower, toilet and bidet. We had a little problem, no biggie and it was fixed right away. The breakfast on the upper outside terrace was really nice, with...

We stayed at Aretusa Vacanze for one night. As we were traveling with a person in a wheelchair, we needed some additional assistance - the owner were extremely helpful and caring! The rooms are clean, spacious and quiet. The breakfast, with a lot of things made by the owner itself, was served on the rooftop, which was very beautiful. Thanks...

We stayed 2 nights with the most wonderful hosts, Maurizio & Cinzia in their comfortable & centrally located B&B in Ortygia. We arrived and Maurizio immediately helped unload our bags and drove me to the garage to park the car as opposed to giving me directions. When we asked for a restaurant recommendation, Cinzia walked me halfway there to ensure...

We definitely associate this B&B with the most memorable breakfast had in our two-week vacation throughout Sicily, full of local specialties, home-made with passion of the owners of this place, enhancing the authenticity of the experience. A warm welcome and great care of the guests also characterizes this place, our first contact with Sicily. Location: Can not be beaten, near...

Echo all that has been said about Antonio and his staff being extremely helpful, and the wonderful freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast and all the effort put into presentation of the food.Location is absolutely brilliant too. We booked fairly late so only room available was ground floor economy triple for my husband and I. We were advised that the...

Felt like a family run business - very helpful with all our touristy questions. Car parking made so much easier with staff help. Not enough space to gush about breakfast on the roof. Yes. Would return

Incredibly helpful host rode with us to the nearby parking garage they had booked for us. Well-equipped ground floor room with fun mezzanine bed. Outstanding breakfast with fresh ricotta, fresh orange juice and almond granita just a few of the offerings. Excellent location.

We arrived at Siracusa on May 26 for a 4 night stay and, with help from Antonio, we made it to Vicolo Zuccala 1 in Ortigia. We had emailed ahead to say that we would need more help than usual because Paulette broke her foot in Taormina. Antonio made sure we got a room that was easy to get into,...

They came and pick us up to show us the parking space of our car. The room was modern and nice. Breakfast at the 3rd floor terrace was excellent, fresh squished orange, home made cakes. We had a great time.
