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.

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.

It's so completed, warm and fantastic whith a marvelous garden. We have taken breakfast everyday in another gardenplace next to the tree of orange, lemons, figs, grapefruits or pomegranate. From the veranda we amazed in the evening the view to the mountain and the see. Villa Soliva seems to be a little part of paradise.

Very convenient to go to explore Palermo, coastal resorts, castles and historical places. Easy and enjoyable to travel to/from (rented car). The villa is attractive and tasteful: has a large terrace with relaxing views and there is BBQ in the garden. Giuseppe (owner) is extremely hospitable providing ample maps/guides and advice on places to visit. We arrived so late that we were offered tasty local bread with his own delicious olive oil! Thoroughly recommend Casale Orioles.
