View of the hotel from the sea.

Simplicity is the key to the perfect guest room.

The real breakfast of champions.

Our perfect view.

Beachy vibes.

Even pups love chilling at the hotel’s private beach.

Hanging at the beach with the hotel owner Laura and her beautiful daughter Francesca.

The walk from our room to the beach.

That special time of day.

Looking out towards Ortigia.

One of my favorite places to sit.

Highs & Lows

  • I have had the pleasure of visiting the Musciara two times. The first time, Laura the bombshell owner in a bikini, her mama, and her sweet daughter Francesca greeted me at the door of the hotel. I instantly fell in love with this famiglia and hotel.

  • The sense of home and comfort at the Musciara is undeniable. The open spaces, the breakfast area, and beach deck felt like they belonged to us.

  • The food at the hotel is just so good.

  • Due to the sound of the waves, the fresh ocean breeze, and the simple but comfortable bed, I have never slept so well in my life.

  • The Musciara is the only hotel in Syracuse with a private beach and the most spectacular, unpretentious, well kept one at that.

  • This hotel inspires and moves me in so many ways.
