ALGILA ORTIGIA CHARME HOTEL – Our preferred hotel in Syracuse on our Sicily Photo Adventure, and the one we love the most is the Algilà Ortigia Charme Hotel on Ortigia Island in Syracuse, Sicily. There is something very special about the Algilà. We stay at hundreds of hotels around the world on our photo adventures, and Algilà is right up there with some of the best. Perhaps it’s the European elegance, charm and wonderful location, combined with the level of comfort often found in bed & breakfasts.
