The Teatro Massimo, a wonderful Art Nouveau masterpiece, the Cathedral, a jewel of Arab-Norman Art in Sicily, and then San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Piazza Pretoria, La Martorana, Norman Palace, the Museo Arcivescovile, Porta Nuova, Piazza Marina are just some of the most important destinations that is possible to reach after a few minutes of pleasant walk thanks to the successful positioning of the flat. Although it is favorably placed in a lively and picturesque environment, in the vicinity of Ballarò, the famous popular market , of Via Roma and Via Ruggiero VII, very frequent shopping destinations in the city, the apartment benefits from a good position on the top floor of a noble building, which makes it like a quiet and relaxing oasis where you will immerse yourself into an agreeable embrace. Inside you will appreciate its bright and comfortable rooms, a beautiful flowered terrace overlooking Via Maqueda and balconies with panoramic views of the city with its colorful rooftops and beautiful domes of its churches. The flat has been restored in 2010, simultaneously with the entire building, and has been furnished with loving care to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. The apartment is only a few meters from the Central Railway Station, in an area well served by buses and taxis, equipped with connections to the Airport and the beach of Mondello, just a short distance from the Port. Tips to remember: go shopping in the streets of city center, go to the many nightclubs to spend a pleasant night, and for those who love nature, we recommend you visit the beautiful beach of the Gulf of Mondello, or jogging on the beautiful and immense promenade, just a short distance or easily accessible.More
