ORTIGIA LUXURY ROOMS&SUITES
Palazzo Gilistro is located in Syracuse on Amalfitania street, adjacent to Piazza Archimede and only a few meters away from Piazza Duomo, in the heart of the island of Ortigia, today known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Palazzo Gilistro was born from a learned renovation which, while maintaining its architectural and historical connotations of the early Baroque period, offers all modern comforts.
All rooms have one or more balconies with city view or for some of them with sea view and / or private terrace. On the third floor the charming terrace offers to our guests a beautiful view on the Great Harbour, on the Jesuit College Church, and on the roofs of Ortigia.
IN AUTHENTIC SICILIAN STYLE
The rooms are all furnished with prestigious finishes typically belonging to the Sicilian tradition, such as floors of decorative cement tiles or luxurious ancient marbles in shades of pink (standard double rooms) or black (superior double room).
Each room has its own private bathroom, large panoramic balconies overlooking the small streets of Ortigia, air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, hairdryer, courtesy kit and memory mattresses.

as a combination of both history and gastronomy
At the corner of the building, between Cavour Street and Amalfitania Street, a newly restored Egyptian granite column is set, which, according to oral tradition, was used as the “pillory of Syracuse“, dating back to 1400, one of the most important city’s places both from a social, economic and commercial point of view.
The ancient 1700-century black stone staircase, typical of the “Ibleo” Baroque, leads guests into the heart of the building, which is divided in four floors hosting different types of rooms, each with its own distinctive characteristics and color tones but all furnished with a perfect balanced that combines Ancient and Modern style giving charm and atmosphere to the family Palace
