Being situated on a hill overlooking the city, the views from Monreale are also very impressive.

Back in the city the Gesu Church has a very highly decorated interior and was built over the course of 70 years between 1564 and 1633.

The apartment is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The pretty balcony is a great place for spending a few hours with a glass or two of the local wine.

The flat was very clean and nice. I liked the decoration very much and the quality of the towels and sheets was superb, like a 5 star hotel The balcony was lovely, the bed and sofa bed very comfortable and the bathroom was brand new with a powerful walk in shower Bernardo was also very helpful and accommodative to check in and out and easy to contact.
