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.

Great apartment & view but wifi was a BIG problem

4 of 5
The apartment is great - very spacious, lots of light and only about 5 -10 minutes walk from the beach! The balcony was great too - very big with a wonderful view. Everything was clean. However, we experienced two problems: 1) The shower water was absolutely freezing the first night and the taps didn't work properly. Told the owners about this and this was quickly resolved. 2) The wifi was horrific - we were assured that the wifi was unlimited however this was not the case at all. The wifi worked for about 15 minutes per day (we didn't stream videos or watch anything on youtube!) before we were told to top up the balance (this message would show up on the laptop screen)! This was very, very disappointing as we had relied on using the internet to find what places to visit, where to eat etc. This issue was never resolved even though we raised it many, many times. Apart from the wifi and shower issues (especially the wifi), everything else was good! Special thanks to Veronica (I think that was her name!) who was extremely helpful and friendly. She also picked us up from the airport for a good price.

Very pleasant if a little quirky - great week in Palermo

5 of 5
We stayed in the flat at the top of the house. Two lovely terraces and plenty of room. Excellent central location and very quiet. Definitely recommended.

Beautiful apartment and perfectly situated

5 of 5
We visited Palermo for 4 days in February. I chose an apartment which I hoped was well situated, warm and comfortable and we were not disappointed. Virginia was very helpful when we arrived in the evening, giving us tips on where to eat and what to see in our short time. The apartment was warm, large and very nicely decorated. It is located in a very central area within the old city and, although it is very close to tourist attractions, we did not hear any noise in the evening. I would certainly recommend the apartment to friends.
