Set in a beautiful rural location with a delightful restaurant

Located just outside the historic town of Syracuse, Hotel Borgo Pantano is a character property with a pretty, rural setting and friendly, welcoming staff. The hotel is a great base for couples looking to explore this beautiful part of Sicily, making the most of the owners’ expert knowledge of the area. The free-form pool is bound to be a real focus of your stay at the Borgo Pantano and it’s a wonderful prospect: broad, open and surrounded by lemon trees, hammocks and sunbeds. Quite the place to spend the day, lounging, taking in the odd drink, watching the sun set... Should you need some pampering, the hotel also has a wellness centre with a Jacuzzi, a sauna and specialist massages such as chocolate and almond oils.

Named after famous Sicilian poets and artists, the 32 bedrooms are unique in style and elegantly decorated using Sicilian fabrics. The hotel's excellent gastronomic restaurant, Luigi Capuana, serves a range of Sicilian dishes prepared using locally sourced produce. The restaurant terrace is a real delight as is the rich, delicious breakfast served every morning including home-made cakes, sweets and freshly squeezed Sicilian orange juice. During the summer you can enjoy lunch by the pool.

In terms of exploring the local area, Borgo Pantano is ideally placed. You can easily get to the centre of Syracuse and the ‘must see’ beautiful old town of Ortigia. The area of Val di Noto is also only a short drive away with its stunning baroque towns.

About the Local Area


Syracuse, is the best known town in the south east region, and for good reason. It can be roughly divided into three parts, the modern town with its seaside promenades and broad avenues, the ancient Greek and Roman city at the foot of Monti Iblei and lastly, the island of Ortigia with its narrow streets, baroque churches and charming piazzas.


Fontane Bianche
One of the best beaches in the region, Fontane Bianche is 3km stretch of coast, 15km from the centre of Syracuse. With fine white sand, a gently sloping seabed and warm, transparent sea, it is very popular with families. Sunloungers and parasols are available for hire.

Vendicari, Noto
In the heart of Vendicari Nature Reserve lies an 8km stretch of golden sand dunes, lagoons, cliffs and hidden bays. There are no sunloungers, bars or water sports and no crowds. A truly wonderful place to swim and well-suited to families but be sure to take anything you might need including water with you. You might see the occasional flamingo!

San Lorenzo
A favourite beach in this area as it is stunning with beautiful clear, turquoise water and a gently shelving sandy beach which is great for families. Head for the section that is not owned by a particular hotel or resort, where there is a beach hut serving ice cream and drinks. This beach does get busy in peak season.


Greek Theatre Syracuse - Mid May to late June
One of Sicily’s most prestigious cultural events each spring is the Greek Theatre Festival. At sunset, in the evocative setting of this ancient amphitheatre, a classical Greek comedy or tragedy is performed, transporting audiences thousands of years back in time.

Infiorata di Noto, Noto - May
Italy’s best-known flower festival sees one of the baroque town’s main streets, Via Nicolaci, carpeted with a series of flower tapestries. The day after the festival finishes children enjoy running through the petals scattering them in all directions.

Festa della Fragola, Cassibile and Syracuse – April & May
A celebration of the first crop of strawberries held every year around the end of April/beginning of May.


Take a stroll around the enchanted cobbled streets of the island of Ortigia, stopping at bustling piazza’s and baroque churches along the way.

Piazza del Duomo
Spend an evening at Piazza del Duomo, a masterpiece of baroque architecture lined with restaurants and home to a stunning cathedral adapted by the Byzantines and later the Normans from a 5th century BC temple to Minerva.

Parco Archeologico della Neapolis
Visit the famous Greek ruins in Syracuse including the extremely well preserved Greek amphitheatre where classical theatre is performed in the summer months.

Val di Noto
Drive to the late baroque towns of the Val di Noto. The valley holds a series of picturesque towns composed almost entirely of baroque churches, palaces and house - a must see for architectural and historical enthusiasts.
