A gorgeous suite stay at a boutique 18th-century palace on Sicily's southeast coast, with a rooftop terrace and views over Syracuse – includes breakfast and welcome perks

Once the most important city of the ancient world, handsome Syracuse is one of Sicily's greatest treasures. This Mediterranean beauty embodies everything you'd expect of a historic Italian settlement: a maze of medieval lanes leading onto wide piazzas, some impressive Baroque basilicas and a clutch of brilliant archaeological sites that offer a window in to a time gone by. Just across the Ionian Sea lies the city's lesser-known but arguably more charming sister, the UNESCO-listed island of Ortigia. Housed within one of the island's lavish Italian palazzos, the Re Federico is a seriously stylish base for those looking to explore the wonders of this corner of Sicily.


Once the home of King Federico II, this boutique beauty offers a winning combination of ultra-swish interiors and intimate service, not to mention bags of character and old-world charm. The six suites come with their own individual design, each boasting decor that oozes minimalist luxury with plenty of high-end furnishings and modern touches.

Wake up to a fantastic breakfast of Italian goodies before strolling into town to marvel at rows upon rows of elegant palazzi or enjoy a spot of gelato on one of the many attractive beaches. After a day exploring, you'll be ready to recline to the hotel's stunning rooftop terrace, decked out with plenty of loungers where you can drink in the unbeatable vistas out over the Ionian Sea.
