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!).

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.

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 was our first time in the city and on Sicily. The apartment was a true paradise treasure in the city center. The location is only a couple of minutes walk from Piazza Politeama and the mercato del capo. The apartment has all you need, it is modern, brand new, fully equipped and on the ground floor with a private entrance. Yes, we loved the sliding windows (from floor to ceiling) which open to the beautiful green apartment garden with a hammock. The hammock is so welcome and comfy, especially after a long city walk. Though we arrived early we were warmly welcomed by Carlo and Laura with a good Italian espresso. Delizioso! Carlo answered all our questions and gave us some good tips. Thank you Carlo. He also gave us a portable wifi, so we could be online all day long even when being away from the apartment. That was spot on - an excellent surprise for us - as we both needed some work done during our getaway. Thumbs up Carlo and Laura. If you ever come to Amsterdam: houseboatinamsterdam (dot) nl - you are always welcome. Grazie mille. --Coleta and Stanley

                                                                                                      The flat was airy and comfortable with everything we needed in safe quiet street near lovely square and old vegetable market. Sara was really helpful in showing us how to keep safe and we had no problems exploring tiny twisting streets. There is so much to do in the city in a week we felt no need to travel further although a bus trip to Monreale was wonderful, and a bus to Castello Zisa well worth while. The station is nearby if you do want to explore the coast. Something new and surprising turns up each day if you keep your eyes open and all the churches are amazing . Everyone is really friendly and helpful. There are delightful backstreet restaurants nearby across via Roma with plates of wonderful vegetable specialities as well as fish , no problems for vegetarians. Beyond the via Maqueda ( usually pedestrianised) and Corso Vittorio Emanuele are good for evening passeggiata, street food ( arancini ), gelato and granite; in our 8 days we had a free puppet festival in a square, a beautiful religious procession ( fireworks doves and bands) and free musical concerts. We enjoyed the Puppet Museum , the Opera House Tour, Piazza Marina Gardens, and do ask Sara about the fabulous private tile museum Stanza al Genio in a small palace - you need to book in and the long guided tour ( in English) is full of fascinating history with time to browse and take photos. It's not in the guide books and worth telling everyone about. There is so much history in every wall in the street once you get your eye in and the graffiti is wonderful - as good as an art gallery. Sharing streets with traffic seems to work even when they look hectic and busy but watch out - it comes both ways when least expected. An evening drink on the roof garden of the big store by the flat is quite an experience. The flat is in a brilliant position and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and Sara will make sure you have everything you need - she was so kind( Thank you so much Sara!)
