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 place is a peacefully surrounded by the Green and located really close to the Mondello beach. The nice houses are curated in detail, clean and well equipped as well as the awesome garden with an easy access to the swimming pool. The owners are great hosts and the atmosphere is friendly. Just 2 minutes walking, you will find bars, pizzeria and a newsstand with international newspaper and ...more important... the food market is just 3 minutes walking and open by 10 p.m. So I really recommend it!

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.
