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.

We were well received by Andrea in Elena's absence. the apartment was clean and everything worked including fast wi-fi. The location is absolutely brilliant and we walked to many of the sights and to the central station and bus stops. Thank you Elena and we will certainly recommend your apartment and if we return to Palermo will use it again.

It was our first time in the city and on Sicily. The apartment was a true paradise treasure in the city center. The location is only a couple of minutes walk from Piazza Politeama and the mercato del capo. The apartment has all you need, it is modern, brand new, fully equipped and on the ground floor with a private entrance. Yes, we loved the sliding windows (from floor to ceiling) which open to the beautiful green apartment garden with a hammock. The hammock is so welcome and comfy, especially after a long city walk. Though we arrived early we were warmly welcomed by Carlo and Laura with a good Italian espresso. Delizioso! Carlo answered all our questions and gave us some good tips. Thank you Carlo. He also gave us a portable wifi, so we could be online all day long even when being away from the apartment. That was spot on - an excellent surprise for us - as we both needed some work done during our getaway. Thumbs up Carlo and Laura. If you ever come to Amsterdam: houseboatinamsterdam (dot) nl - you are always welcome. Grazie mille. --Coleta and Stanley

It's on Via Maqueda, one of the main streets in the city and central to all the sights of the old town. The apartment has lots of character with two balconies including one overlooking the street where you can drink wine and watch the world go by (as we did every night). Everything you need is included with a fully stocked kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi and aircon. Massimo, the owner, is the perfect host who will welcome you warmly on arrival and spend a few minutes explaining about the apartment and the city. He gave us some great restaurant recommendations - we tried all of them and were very impressed - plus a useful map which helped us navigate the back alleys and side streets. This was our first time in Palermo and we absolutely loved it. We thoroughly recommend the city and Massimo's apartment is the ideal place to stay.
