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.

I very rarely write reviews, as I can't usually give wholehearted praise, and Gina knows that I don't really use social media! But, in this case, I feel I have to. The apartment is absolutely lovely - spacious and well-equipped, with very thoughtful touches of oil, vinegar and herbs, tea, coffee and sugar. The drinks in the fridge were very welcome and saved us shopping for heavy things. The terrace is a lovely place to be. I really hope I didn't kill the plants - I have black thumbs not green ones! We really liked the location, right behind the Teatro Massimo, so very easy to find our bearings. We loved walking around Palermo, and would have happily stayed longer than our 6 nights, and it was lovely to be able to relax so comfortably and completely at the end of a tiring day. Although it's a top floor (4th) apartment there is a tiny but perfectly functional lift which is also very secure and safe. The entire time we felt safe, but particularly in the apartment, which is extremely secure. Thank you Gina for everything, especially letting us in earlier than normal check-in time and arranging taxis for us and booking L'Anciova - absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I'm still remembering the outstanding Spada dish.
