We stayed for 11 nights in Bilo 2 in Via Salomone. It is situated in a converted old Baroque Palace. How often does one get the chance to stay in a palace! The apartment was close to lots of restaurants, bars etc whilst being quiet at night. The location was superb and a ten minute stroll got you to a most wonderful market. The apartment was well equiped for cooking and we had some lovely meals and great Sicilian wines. I have a special diet so it made things easier. We also ate out at some splendid restaurants.
Ortigia is breathtakingly beautiful and full of ancient history and splendid architecture.During May and June there is a festival of Greek drama in the ancient Greek Theatre. This was an amazing and moving experience. A good tip if its hot book tickets as you face the theatre on the left hand side(already in the shade).
Don't miss the Caravaggio - it glows at you as you enter the church. The archaeology museum is very interesting and the catacombs nearby are some of the best I have visited to date.
