It is equipped with a modern kitchen, good Wifi, TV. There are three terrace areas including the large one to the front of the building. We walked to all of the main attractions in Palermo. The attractions are good but there is as much to experience with just walking through the city and stopping off for a coffee, gelato or beer on the way! We did a bit of travelling to some of the areas surrounding Palermo which was good as well.

A simple, beautifully furnished, comfortable, well-equipped and clean apartment, with own entrance from the garden. We didn't cook this time, but there were good facilities for making a meal, and a table on the patio to enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. We had a warm smiling welcome from Carlo, who was on hand with advice and information as soon as we arrived. He gave us a quick orientation to Palermo and some top tips for what to see and where to eat (we ate at the very popular Bisso’s on both our evenings). The apartment was a lovely peaceful place to come back to after a day's sightseeing and at the end of an evening out. Carlo and Laura were very hospitable and generous in spending time with us and sharing about life in Sicily. All in all a fantastic start to our first visit to Sicily.
