Beautiful and intricate architecture and décor is one of the main attractions and is most evident in its churches and cathedrals.

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 Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico) is an interesting place too.

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.
