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.

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

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.

We were well received by Andrea in Elena's absence. the apartment was clean and everything worked including fast wi-fi. The location is absolutely brilliant and we walked to many of the sights and to the central station and bus stops. Thank you Elena and we will certainly recommend your apartment and if we return to Palermo will use it again.
