We stayed at Paolo’s lovely apartment for a few days in September. He is such a nice friendly and helpful man. The accomodation is cosy but the outside space and terrace is superb. It’s a short drive into Trabia but there are fish restaraunts within walking distance. We went into Palermo by train from Trabia as the city is chaotic, the train was easy and no hassle. Drives around the Targo Fiorio route and the museum in Termini Imerese were the highlights plus a visit to Corleone to see the CIDMA exhibition. Thank you Paolo for a lovely stay. Ciao
Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying that the apartment wasn't fantastic because it was, but it's position in the centre of old Palermo was the key to our enjoyment. We stayed there for six days and it is situated only a few steps from the Quattro Canto the beating heart of the old city. We were met by Andrea, Elena's charming nephew who quickly showed us how everything worked and gave us some great local restaurant recommendations. We had a car but Elena arranged a secure reserved space for us in the basement of the building for an extra €10 per day. Do note that the apartment is in the ZTL (Zone of Traffic Limitation) and you have to pay €5 a day if you want to drive in the ZTL during the week - weekends free. You can buy ZTL scratchcards from most tobacco shops and then text the code to a central number. The air conditioned apartment is on the top floor, is accessed via a lift and has views east across rooftops. It has all the expected facilities to suit a couple but can sleep four at a push. Everywhere is walkable and we only used the car a couple of times to visit Monreale and the coast at Mondello. Don't hesitate to stay at L'Penthouse 261 if you're in Palermo - you'll love it.
