Hotel Description

Siracusa isn’t exactly what you’d call a modern metropolis — visitors to its picturesque old town are more likely to be interested in the echoes of ancient Greece or the buildings of the Baroque era. But one can find a little island of sophistication from time to time. Palazzo Cavalieri, at the edge of the ancient city center, is a case in point; this old aristocratic residence now belongs to a family of architects and designers, who’ve turned its 19th-century halls and rooms into a charmingly eclectic, thoroughly contemporary boutique hotel.

The location, on Via Malta, is just to the mainland side of the bridge to Ortigia, which is the original ancient Greek settlement. This means easy access by day and a measure of peace by night. As does the hotel itself — these old walls shut out the noise, sealing guests in to a fantasy of noble life. It’s not a period piece, though; along with the well-preserved original architecture you’ll find all manner of contemporary touches, rooms featuring brand-new bath fixtures, beds and electronics and furnished with mid-century design classics. With twenty rooms it’s perhaps a bit bigger than it feels — from within the rooms you’d be hard pressed not to imagine you’re the old house’s sole resident.

Please note: Palazzo Cavalieri is open seasonally from February through the beginning of November.

How to get there: Palazzo Cavalieri is approximately 35 miles (55 km) from Catania International Airport (Fontanarossa). Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
