About the neighbourhood
Xirba is located in La Kalsa, Palermo's Arab quarter, where it is still possible to capture a feel of the ancient Arabic-Sicilian culture. The neighborhood is vibrant and buzzing. Just round the corner from the apartment, many international restaurants are waiting for you to discover the typical cuisine of the city. Supermarkets, shops, bars, pubs as well as cafes and transport links are within close walking distance.
Getting around
WARNING: Anyone who is planning to drive in Palermo's historic centre needs to be aware of Restricted Traffic Areas, or Zona Traffico Limitato in Italian, abbreviated to ZTL. The old town centre has set up these limited traffic zones in order to reduce congestion and pollution, and there are significant fines for driving into one of these zones unauthorized. No cars without permits can be allowed in this area. So, If you are planning on driving in the historic centre of Palermo, make sure you inform me about that, so I can tell you where to take your 5-euro daily entrance ticket and how to activate it in order to get in the city centre without getting fined.
