Grand Hotel Villa Politi 1862 ...150 years of charming welcomes!



The 4 star Grand Hotel Villa Politi is located close to the famed archaeological zone in the northern part of the historical city of Siracusa. Enjoying panoramic sea views from our cliff top location and also a short walk from the town centre, Villa Politi offers a combination of seaside, town centre and historical landmarks.

On the southern side of this near-2,700 year old city, about a two kilometres from the hotel, is the charming island of Oritigia. Connected to mainland Sicily by a short footbridge, Ortigia is the city’s medieval town centre and is home to historical sites dating as far back as the Byzantine period. Overlooking the stunning Bay of Siracusa, this unforgettable place fuses history with the glamour of the sun-soaked Mediterranean paradise that is one of Sicily’s most beautiful port towns.

Latomie dei Cappuccini

The Grand Hotel Villa Politi in Siracusa is unique in Italy thanks to its very special surroundings. Built literally upon the Latomie dei Cappuccini, this stunning Liberty style villa is actually in one of Sicily’s oldest historical archaeological sites. A network of caves carved into the rock of a naturally occurring amphitheatre in the cliffs of Siracusa’s coastline, the Latomie dei Cappuccini were used to imprison Athenian soldiers in around 413 BC.
