About the location
Holidays in Syracuse are an immersive voyage of discovery through the ages. Situated on the south Eastern coast of Sicily and surrounded by the Ionian Sea, Syracuse is one of the most important towns in Italy for its architecture, monuments and art. From ancient Greek origins, the history of the town spans the Roman Empire and successive Saracen, Norman and Spanish invasions. Today, the peaceful atmosphere, with its natural beauty, stunning coastline and historical diversity, will seduce you too. The town is an ideal base for couples and families with a passion for cultural travel.
Under the Sicilian sun, retrace ancient civilisations through the flagstone paved streets lined by warm stone buildings, where unique statues and evocative relics are to be found around every corner. Take advantage of the slow pace of life and take the time to check out the inspiring range of restaurants, shops, bars and street markets. This maritime town, tracing nearly 3000 years of history, provides an unforgettable backdrop to an inspirational and fascinating holiday at any time of year.

This is a biggish hotel, v close to the sights of Syracuse. The rooms are large, comfortable, good bathroom. Breakfast was the usual Covid affair ........ which I'm sure the hotel cringes about......but was perfectly adequate. There's a useful lounge for clients in transit - you can wait there and help yourself to a coffee or tea whilst waiting for an airport taxi.

The Grande Albergo Alfeo justifies the "Grande" in its name - the high-ceilinged public areas are very spacious, as was our double room. The hotel is conveniently situated between the railway station and the heart of old Siracusa on Ortigia. Reception staff were very helpful and courteous, cleanliness couldn't be faulted, and a better than average breakfast was served in difficult Covid circumstances by letting guests pre-order the day before. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Siracusa.
