When we arrived, we had a warm welcome from Sebastiano who had many tips and recommendations to give. It is clear that this man takes great pride in showing the best his town has to offer. Our room had a very nice view of the harbor and a small balcony which sees typical for Sicily. The room was large, and...

Sebastiano is lovely as every review says but when it comes to his business an overhaul needs to be looked at - get rid of everything Ikea, open the windows and let some air and light into the place and decide if you still love your b & b, seriously imagine what it could be - It could be fabulous,...

What a warm welcome in Syracuse! Sebastiano is a very friendly and funny guy. He took the time to tell us about his city, the best sights and walks, some restaurants and bars. He even went out of his way to provide us with great tips about nice cities and the best beaches for the rest of our stay in...

Conveniently-located, spacious and comfortable room with balcony and a nice view. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a good introduction to everything (including explanations of the free parking area and how to get there) and some recommendations for exploring the neighbourhood.

We stayed at Porto Turistico for five nights in July this year and couldn't image a more lovely place to stay - it was a brilliant discovery that made our time spent in Siracusa unforgettable!

We stayed at Porto Turistico for five nights in July this year as part of our trip to Sicily. The B&B and the hospitality of the friendly owner, Sebastiano far exceeded our expectations. The location was also perfect - right opposite the harbour in Ortygia with everything in easy walking distance but was still peaceful enough at night. Sebastiano gave...

Absolutely loved this place. The host was excellent and his recommendation of an off the beaten ice cream place was foodie heaven. The room was fab, large, gorgeous filled with off beat individual furniture (no mdf in sight). You could definitely take a turn about the room a la period drama. Location perfect. Loved it, will come back if back...

We stayed at Porto Turistico for 3 nights, it was fantastic. I highly recommend it. We had the "up room", it was really like an apartment on the top floor of the building. Large bedroom. Lounge room kitchen, bathroom and a private roof top garden with fantastic views. Sebastiano, the owner could not have been more helpful, recommending restaurants, things...

We stayed three nights here and were lucky enough to have the top room. Fantastic view overlooking the harbor and a big private terrace to relax in the afternoon sun. Room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Sebastiono is great (fluent English), we followed his advice on restaurants and we weren't disappointed. He also suggested going to Noto for half...

Great location in old Siracusa. Large and nice room. The manager Sebastiano was very friendly and extremely helpful. His recommendations for places to visit and restaurants were very pertinent. I had to be in Catania airport very early in the morning, when there were no buses circulating. Sebastiano drove me himself. Unbeatable price compared to shuttle services of other Siracusa...
