Palermo is the attractive historical capital of Sicily, the main Italian island just off the coast of south west Italy (at the tip of the boot!).

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.

A very enjoyable experience.

5 of 5
Situated in the older part of Palermo, the apartment was excellent, providing everything that one would want for an extended stay. The apartment was situated very close - a short walk - to all the main attractions that Palermo had to offer and had ready access to public transport if you wanted to venture further. Our hostess, Roberta, was welcoming, gracious and very helpful. All in all a 'very enjoyable experience'!
