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.

Lovely apartment in great location

5 of 5
A lovely and characterful apartment in a 16th century palazzo only a few minutes walk from the cathedral and many of Palermo's main sites of interest; great restaurants and markets. Virginia, the owner, is friendly and helpful. .

Elegant Mondello Home

5 of 5
Spacious well-furnished home set back from the beach and the nightlife of Mondello, but within close walking distance. Secure off-street parking a bonus as we used it as a base for travelling around North-West Sicily. Air conditioning and insect screens much appreciated.
