Our History

The B&B PROMETEO features four charming rooms, three double and one triple. All the rooms are elegant, comfortable, air-conditioned and finely furnished. The rooms are named Water, Air, Fire and Earth, after the ancient Greek philosophy of Empedocles.

There is also a common room where our tasty and rich breakfasts are served.

Opened in Syracuse in April 2019 after a total and careful renovation of the property, the B&B PROMETEO is located in the central Piazza Adda area, on the south side of the Archaeological Park of Neapolis, very close to the complex of monuments including the Greek Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Altar of Hieron and the Ear of Dionysius.

At the B&B PROMETEO, the following services are available:

• led smart TV;

• private bathroom;

• hairdryer;

• slippers and courtesy set;

• air-conditioned environment;

• daily room cleaning

• change of towels and bed linen

• Sanctuary of the Our Lady of Tears, built on the area where the Greek temple of Demeter and Kore once stood as a sign of sacred continuity

Scavi eseguiti negli anni ’80 del secolo scorso hanno portato in luce una
serie di strutture monumentali, tra cui questo altare, pertinente ad
un’area di culto, ed una stoà, databili ad età ieroniana.
