Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Palermo, Italy your home away from home

Palermo, on the Italian island of Sicily, has an undeniably eastern vibe, with bustling squares surrounded by sandstone architecture, influenced by the Arabs, Normans, Spaniards and Phoenicians, giving it a unique atmosphere and style, with fascinating sights at every turn.

Things to do in Palermo, Italy

It is hard not to get wrapped up in the energy of the Palermo city centre, where the maze of narrow streets overflow with shops, restaurants and Baroque churches, then suddenly open into flamboyant squares. The old city centre, the Quattro Canti, holds some beautiful historical gems, including the Cappella Palatina, the Norman Cathedral and the Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace), the finest medieval court in Europe.

The Convento dei Cappuccini catacombs make for mesmerizing viewing from a Palermo apartment, but it is best not to go around meal times as the corpse lines catacombs is more than slightly macabre.

However, if you would like a break from the break neck pace of life in Palermo city centre, the magnificent beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea are waiting just a few miles from your self catering Palermo apartment. The atmosphere on Mondello Beach is quite different; relaxed and peaceful, where time seems to stand still, and you can while away many hours on the soft sand, listening to the water gently lapping the shore. Sferracavallo Beach is even more peaceful, and is backed by some excellent Palermo restaurants.

Places to go on holiday in Palermo, Italy

Climbing Mt Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, is a hugely popular activity from a Palermo apartment, but you must seek the advice of experts before embarking on any trip to Mt Etna as weather conditions can vary, and thus make the trip very dangerous.

Weather in Palermo, Italy

Average temperatures in Palermo never drop below 12°C, making it a perfect spot to escape the winter blues. Summer is hot and dry, with average temperatures of 28°C, making the beaches of Palermo an instant attraction.

Cheap flights to Palermo, Italy

Palermo International Airport (PMO) is 30km outside of the city centre, but there are regular busses which will take you directly to the front door of your Palermo accommodation rental. Flying London to Palermo takes only a few hours, and you can be settled in your holiday rental villa in Palermo very quickly after leaving the UK, provided by Ryanair.

Great villa lovely view loads of space fab pool

5 of 5
Barbara is very nice and so is her villa. She is very unobtrusive and the pool was the best we have seen. Views are stunning and the lounging and eating space is copius. The covered terrace is massive, breezy and cool.

Lovely apartment in great location

5 of 5
A lovely and characterful apartment in a 16th century palazzo only a few minutes walk from the cathedral and many of Palermo's main sites of interest; great restaurants and markets. Virginia, the owner, is friendly and helpful. .
