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.
Please note that a city tax of €1.50 per person, per night (maximum four days) is payable at the hotel upon check-out.
