History lovers will also be delighted with the surprise in the basement, but more about this later. You'll find a huge choice of restaurants and cafes on the doorstep as you wander around the fascinating maze that is Ortigia.

An evocative and historical setting

You enter via a door from this narrow street in the old ghetto area in Ortigia and will soon appreciate the palace's history when you walk through the atmospheric hallway, towards the inner courtyard, and into the communal lounges and finally your charming accommodation. Today this historical palace houses twenty four apartments, with both one and two bedrooms. It stands in the heart of Ortigia in between narrow and charming streets that beckon to be explored. The building is very beautiful and the large public lounge rooms are simply sensational, offering you many cosy and romantic corners to hide away in.

The surprises continue underground

The current owner, not surprisingly an architect, bought the mansion due to her fascination with its architectural lines. She was aware that a lot of work was required to make the palace habitable again and during this work she discovered a secret door with steps leading to somewhere that was blocked. After a lot of work and a large excavation underneath the building, a so-called "Miqwé" (ancient Jewish bath) was discovered. It was built during Sicily's Byzantine period and is Europe's most significant Miqwé. Guests at Alla Giudecca may visit the public bath.

Convenient apartments - also with terraces

Alla Giudecca has been thoroughly restored and all the apartments are fitted with satellite TV, a safety deposit box and air conditioning. However, we should point out that kitchen facilities comprise of a kitchenette with two hot plates. In addition, some apartments have access to a terrace with a table and chairs, which is a wonderful opportunity to sit amongst Sicilian fruit groves in the early evening hours and enjoy the sweet aromas and a nice glass of wine. The apartments are unspecified and consequently you cannot book a particular one in the property.

Very romantic setting

We highly recommend Residence Alla Giudecca to couples who want to experience a magnificent piece of history in a historically endowed city. It's perfectly located for romantic strolls amidst the narrow and charming lanes of the Ortigia peninsula where many fine restaurants and cafes are located. The place does accept children, but we would not recommend the place to families with children due to the many stairs and little space available for children to play.
