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.

Old Palermo

Great views and facilities nearby. You can walk to many of the sights. Luigi provided lots of info on local area and was very helpful -picking us up at the bus station and arranging a taxi to the airport. Apartment excellent for a couple -lots of cooking implements and basics provided. It was great to get spring sunshine on the balcony.

Great time; great location;great accommodations.

5 of 5
The flat in the center of Palermo was everything as explained and shown to us beforehand. We were met upon arrival by Antonello at the apartment and the workings were clearly explained. Grocery was near as well as bus stops although we mainly walked due to the prime location. The washing machine and elevator both made our three week stay easy. Apartment was clean and included all the necessary equipment and linens. Definitely we would recommend the apartment for a short or long stay in Palermo.
