This is the place to stay in Siracusa, Sicily
Giovanni and Leonora are perfect hosts as they are patient and explain everything that has to do with their B&B. They are quite proud of their business and it shows in how they pay attention to their guests. The rooms are spacious, modern and very comfortable. Plus the location cannot be beat as you can literally visit all of the key tourist attractions on Ortigia and in Siracusa such as the Neaopolis Archaeological Park or the Paolo Orsi Museuem.

Great stay in Syracuse!
Our stay at Photoguest exceeded all of our expectations. The room was very clean, breakfast was delicious, and the hosts are wonderful people. They even tried to help track down some distant relatives of ours when we told them that we had family that originated in a neighboring town. The location is great for walking all over the city for sightseeing and dining. I would highly recommend staying here to experience Syracuse!

Great stay in Siracusa
We are very happy with our stay. Eleanora reached out to us to make sure our check in went smooth and even helped us find parking, which was actually very easy to find if you know the local rules. The location was good, 8 min walk to Ortyiga and 10 minute walk to the archeological park. Area is safe with lots of amenities. Breakfast is great and Giovanni is a great host and will go out of his way to assist if you are in need of help. Highly recommend and would stay again.

Perfect stay
Giovanni and Eleonora are the finest hosts, giving you all the right advice to get the full Sicilian experience. From parking our hire car for us, to recommending where to eat and what to see, the stay was superb. If you get a chance, make sure you ask for one of their excellent Canolli’s at breakfast and Giovanni’s cappucinos are a must. Simply brilliant!!!

Creating Great Memories in Siracusa
An exceptional experience graciously hosted by Giovanni and his wife. Used Photoguest as the base for visits along the eastern coast of Sicily receiving great guidance and insight on where to visit uncovering many unexpected treasures. "Concierge service" on sites to visit and places to eat was truly outstanding and added hugely to the whole experience.
