                                                                                        5 of 5

It is 30 mins by foot from the Norman Palace, ten from the sea or the Botanical garden, and twenty minutes from the tourist attractions to the western side of the town centre. There is a bakery and general store at five minutes east, the Carrefour ten minuters west and an excellent Pizza restaurant Arte e Tradizioni just around the corner. The terrace provides an ideal place, along with the seaside and the Botanical Garden, to take time out from the relentlessly urban character of Palermo. Francesca was out of town, arranging for a friend to meet us. Both ladies however checked in from time to time by text so we felt very well supported throughout. The flat is unusual in that it feels lived in, as if one is a family guest. Strongly recommended.
