Make a holiday home, apartment or villa in Palermo, Italy your home away from home

Palermo is the attractive historical capital of Sicily, the main Italian island just off the coast of south west Italy (at the tip of the boot!). Situated in the north west of the island, the city enjoys a coast on the Tyrrhenian Sea and has much to offer in terms of both attractions and accommodation. Palermo apartments and villas make an excellent choice for couples and families who want to combine sun and sand, with history, culture and gastronomy, the main features of Palermo holidays!

Things to do on holiday in Palermo, Italy

As an ancient city of over 2,700 years old, Palermo has many historical attractions to enjoy. Beautiful and intricate architecture and décor is one of the main attractions and is most evident in its churches and cathedrals. Palermo Cathedral is a beautiful building with Catalan influences, whilst the cathedral in Monreale (a village just outside the city) has an intricate mosaic interior. 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. Other buildings of interest you should take time out to visit from your Palermo apartment include the Palazzo dei Normanni; the Zisa and the Cuba Arabic-Norman royal palaces; the Cappella Palatina; and the Catacombe dei Cappuccini. The Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico) is an interesting place too.

When you’ve enjoyed all the sights, enjoy a swim in the pool of your self catering Palermo villa, or head down to the beach. There are numerous sandy beaches around this area of coast, nearby to Palermo.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic location

5 of 5
Yes - the reviews are all true. I very rarely write reviews, as I can't usually give wholehearted praise, and Gina knows that I don't really use social media! But, in this case, I feel I have to. The apartment is absolutely lovely - spacious and well-equipped, with very thoughtful touches of oil, vinegar and herbs, tea, coffee and sugar. The drinks in the fridge were very welcome and saved us shopping for heavy things. The terrace is a lovely place to be. I really hope I didn't kill the plants - I have black thumbs not green ones! We really liked the location, right behind the Teatro Massimo, so very easy to find our bearings. We loved walking around Palermo, and would have happily stayed longer than our 6 nights, and it was lovely to be able to relax so comfortably and completely at the end of a tiring day. Although it's a top floor (4th) apartment there is a tiny but perfectly functional lift which is also very secure and safe. The entire time we felt safe, but particularly in the apartment, which is extremely secure. Thank you Gina for everything, especially letting us in earlier than normal check-in time and arranging taxis for us and booking L'Anciova - absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I'm still remembering the outstanding Spada dish.
