Description from owner


Palazzo Colpace in Syracuse, is a uniquely elegant and spectacular vacation rental. Built in early nineteen century, the Palazzo perfectly complements the ancient beauty of Ortygia, the old island and nest of the most powerful of the Greek colonies. Ortygia is a pearl in the middle of the blue waters of the Ionian sea. The Palazzo resembles a nave-ship facing the water which you will be able to enjoy from its beautifully furnished terrace. Every room in Palazzo Colpace rental features breathtaking views of the Ionian sea or the city: stand on the terrace and watch the sparkling water of the 'Isolotto dei cani' that barely reaches the surfaces of the sea, or follow ships crossing the sea, or watches the little fishing boats with lights at night, or stand on the balcony to look at the terraces and roofs of the old city, or relax in bed or on the sofa to read a book or day-dream. Inside, rooms are elegantly furnished with three beds and two sofa-beds, ceramic tiles, vaulted ceilings, and modern amenities.

Come and stay with us, and discover the pleasure of a perfect place, a place to simply live in.

The apartment

Palazzo Colpace rental consists of a large apartment located at the second floor of a nineteen century building. The apartment includes a master bedroom, a smaller bedroom, a very large living room, a big kitchen and two bathrooms. All rooms are vaulted. A large terrace faces the sea on one side and a balcony offers open views of the city on the other side. Wear your bathing suit and go to swim just under the Palazzo, or wear your walking shoes and wonders in the narrow streets of Ortigia, or just sit at a cafe in the main square having your gelato or sipping your favorite refreshing drink. The location of the house offers privacy, but is only an easy walk to the main square, and shops, or cafes and restaurants.

The living room continues onto a large terrace with two lounge chairs, a dining table and a sofa. They create a perfect spot for relaxation, private sunbathing, romantic dining. The living room contains a dining table, a comfortable leather sofabed, along with a coffee table and a wall-unit equipped with TV monitor and stereo. A large glass door divides the living room from the kitchen. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, oven, microwave, washing machine, refrigerator and freezer, as well as a dining table. A second sofabed is also present in the kitchen for an extra guest or just for enjoying reading a book or a newspaper. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a wardrobe, a writing-desk, a TV monitor and a Charlotte chair. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be transformed into a queen bed upon request, a wardrobe, a writing desk and a chair. The apartment has two bathrooms with showers. One of the two bathrooms is directly accessible through the master bedroom. A long balcony facing the old town is accessible from the master bedroom and kitchen. Each room has air conditioning and centralized heat. WiFi is available in all rooms.

Palazzo Colpace is 3 minutes walking from Forte Vigliena. Forte Vigliena is open all day and offers immediate access to the crystal clear waters of the Ionian sea. The Historic Center of Ortigia all around, with its buildings of great cultural value, make Siracusa a favorite tourist destination. Especially at night, when the streetlights of this little island create a very special atmosphere, as if one were in a stately home full of works of art and beautiful buildings for one to discover and explore.


The apartment is located in the heart of the Ortigia, an island on which the old colony of Siracusa was established. It is only a few minutes walk from Piazza Duomo, the Castello Maniace, the ancient Jewish mikvah, the marina and many other historic monuments and sites, not to mention fine restaurants, shopping, a seaside promenade, and more. The archeological park with the Greek Theater, and museums are a half hour walk or ten minute drive away. The closest airport is located in Catania at approximately 35 minutes' drive to the north. Airport pick up and drop off available from local taxi services.

Siracusa is located on the East coast of Sicily. The coast is characterized by sandy beaches such as the famous “Fontane bianche” with crystal-clear water, easily reachable from Ortigia by a 20 minutes drive. In less than 1 hour drive you can also reach Vendicari natural park, Cava Grande, the Pantalica natural park, Palazzolo with a small enchanted Greeck Theatre, along with Noto, Ragusa Ibla, Scicli and Modica, four towns belonging to the UNESCO, and famous for their Baroque buildings. At approximately 150 Kms, with daily excursions, you can reach Taormina, the park of the mighty Volcano Mount Etna, Agrigento, Piazza Armerina with the famous Roman Villa, The Castle of Donnafugata where the film by Visconti “The Leopard” was partly shot, and many more places that have been built in the last 4.000 years in Sicily.
