Aretusa Vacanze has an excellent location in Ortygia, the beautiful old town of Syracuse.

Finding some of our accommodation in Sicily has proved to be quite a challenge, however we have very clear instructions from Aretusa Vacanze B&B as to what to enter into our GPS, where to park and who to phone on arrival to help with the luggage. All goes to clockwork and when we phone, Michael meets us to help us take the luggage to the accommodation – about 100 metres away in a small pedestrian street.

Entrance to Aretusa Vacanze B&B

Someone stays with the car, as we are parked in a bus stop, so once Michael has shown us into the B&B he goes back to show us where to park the car – in fact he drives the car to the carpark!

In the meantime, Anton checks us into our room. We have Room 8 on the 3rd floor. There is a small lift which is a blessing as we don’t have to carry the bags up three flights of stairs.
