Best Affordable Beach Resorts
Courtesy of Musciara Siracusa Resort
In Sicily’s capital of Baroque, the portside Musciara Siracusa Resort combines rustic luxury with old-world charm. Inside the refurbished 19th-century palazzo, the 12 spacious bedrooms are painted in rich ochres and light blues. You can swim in the warm waters off the hotel’s small private beach, or take a 15-minute walk to Ortygia, the ancient city center, with its many gelaterias. After sundown, linger over an aperitivo on the hotel’s seaside terrace and watch fishermen hunt squid by the light of lanterns.
