Mercato Art is an elegant, tastefully restored, early-20th c. apartment. Its balcony windows open out onto the blue Ionian Sea and the colours and smells of Ortigia’s historic street market: a truly privileged view point to capture the market atmosphere and participate in an unforgettable, intensely authentic Sicilian experience.

The interior of Mercato Art conserves many fascinating early-20th-c. original elements such as the decorative wall panelling, the high vaulted ceilings and cement tile patterned flooring and these combine with contemporary lighting design, micro-concrete toppings and custom furniture to create a harmony that contrasts the hectic mishmash of the market below. The entrance doorway opens onto a living room and a small, visually attractive wine cellar standing on traditional Sicilian ceramic tiles, from here you go through to the kitchen, the true heart of the house and a well-equipped, stainless steel worktop invites you prepare the fresh products just bought from the market stalls below. Large double balcony windows flood this area of the house and the typical decorative wall panels with light. With its painted vaulted ceiling, the master bedroom has en-suite bathroom, king-size bed and sea view.

Both bathrooms are embellished with decorative details and custom-made elements, such as the sculpted Modica stone washbasin. The owner is able to organize Sicilian culinary classes upon request and his chef will accompany guests to do the shopping in the market below guiding them in the discovery of flavours and traditions.
