Stylish city apartment in the very heart of Ortygia. It’s the perfect hideaways from which to explore the best of charming Syracuse. It offers versatile comfortable spaces indoors and the shaded terrace that overlooks the rooftops of Ortygia is perfect for a bit of outdoor living.


Casa Melli is situated in the vibrant heart of Ortygia, the historic peninsula of Syracuse and just a short stroll away from all its main attractions. The sea around Ortygia is beautiful and the locals rarely miss a quick swim. In the summer, you can jump in the sea or take a swim from the bathing platform just a few minutes’ walk away.


This versatile apartment is situated on the first and second floor of a very elegant period building. It is composed of two adjoining apartments that can be paired into one. It has recently been refurbished retaining its period features, such as the original stuccos ceilings. The color palette ranges from cream to warm cappuccino with the odd dash of cool dark grey. A few quirky details here and there and savvy use of the overall spaces by the owners have rendered it into a most comfortable apartment indeed.

On on side is the apartment with a balcony

From the common landing a separate entrance gives on to a spacious living room with a comfortable sofa-bed and armchair. A typically Sicilian small balcony complete with a lace curtain, looks down at the busy street. The double bedroom is simple and comfortable. It opens to the living room as well as to an intimate dining room. The kitchen has the necessary equipment to prepare a meal with the fresh ingredients bought at the nearby local market. The bathroom has an impressive large shower.

On the other is the apartment with a terrace and a balcony

The entrance leads to another large living room and gives on to a balcony. A sofa here also doubles up as extra sleeping space if required, and the table doubles up as a dining table or as a desk. Through a corridor is the double bedroom and its en suite bathroom. A sliding door can cleverly unite the bathroom’s large shower with the bedroom. Through a stairway leading up to the second floor you will find a small kitchen. Here you can prepare breakfast, drinks and snacks to be consumed on the terrace. The terrace offers gorgeous views of the rooftops with a typical bamboo pergola that ensures shade on sunny days. This is where you can also enjoy al fresco dining as well as lounging in traditional deckchairs. If you book the whole apartment, you’ll have plenty of space to relax in plus a small roof terrace for al fresco wining and dining amidst the rooftop views.
