It's on Via Maqueda, one of the main streets in the city and central to all the sights of the old town. The apartment has lots of character with two balconies including one overlooking the street where you can drink wine and watch the world go by (as we did every night). Everything you need is included with a fully stocked kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi and aircon. Massimo, the owner, is the perfect host who will welcome you warmly on arrival and spend a few minutes explaining about the apartment and the city. He gave us some great restaurant recommendations - we tried all of them and were very impressed - plus a useful map which helped us navigate the back alleys and side streets. This was our first time in Palermo and we absolutely loved it. We thoroughly recommend the city and Massimo's apartment is the ideal place to stay.

                                                                                          The flat is located in an area with local character but also good facilities including on street no cost parking. It is 30 mins by foot from the Norman Palace, ten from the sea or the Botanical garden, and twenty minutes from the tourist attractions to the western side of the town centre. There is a bakery and general store at five minutes east, the Carrefour ten minuters west and an excellent Pizza restaurant Arte e Tradizioni just around the corner. The terrace provides an ideal place, along with the seaside and the Botanical Garden, to take time out from the relentlessly urban character of Palermo. Francesca was out of town, arranging for a friend to meet us. Both ladies however checked in from time to time by text so we felt very well supported throughout. The flat is unusual in that it feels lived in, as if one is a family guest. Strongly recommended.

                                                                                          My wife and I spent a very enjoyable and relaxing week in this top-floor apartment in central Palermo in mid September. For a start we were greeted on arrival by Gina who had kindly left bottles of water, beer and fruit-juice in the fridge and bowls of fresh fruit on the dining table - a nice touch that is not always found on arrival in other properties. While the outside of the property is unimposing the apartment itself on the 4th floor is all one could wish for - very clean, spacious,two full-size bathrooms and a very attractive outdoor terrace from which the nearby Teatro Massimo can be seen. Its private lift which goes only to the 4th floor is an additional feature which enhances one's sense of security. As other reviews have said the property is better than the photos might suggest. The location is very central being within easy walking distance of many of the city's main attractions - the many markets,restaurants,churches including the Cathedral where one can go on a spectacular roof-top walk. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to visitors to the city.
