About the neighbourhood
The flat is conveniently located in a quiet alley in the heart of the old town, off Corso Vittorio Emanuele, a 2-minute walk from the majestic Cathedral, within 5-minute walking distance from the stunning Norman Palace and the Palatine Chapel, a few steps from the popular Ballarò and Capo historical markets and very close to the most famous sights in town: Piazza Vittoria, Quattro Canti, La Martorana Church, San Cataldo Church, Casa Professa Church with its well-known polychrome marbles, a great example of Baroque Art, and also, modern and contemporary art galleries and a number of ancient buildings. Finally, the world-famous Massimo and Politeama theatres, refined examples of Palermo’s modern architecture, can be easily reached on foot or by bus from the bus stops nearby. The central...
Getting around
Car is not necessary as the apartment is conveniently located in the city centre, within walking distance to the main monuments in Palermo and close to several restaurants, cafes and shops. The whole historical centre in Palermo is a Traffic Limited Area. As a result, in order to access it by car guests are required to buy daily ZTL cards. Each card costs 5,00 euros and can be purchased at most the tobacconists in the city centre. In order to drive into the historical centre guests are required to send a text message following all the instructions in the card. Free parking space is available in Piazza dell'Origlione, just 2 minutes from the apartment.
