About the neighbourhood
Origlione House is located in a peaceful area of the historic square Ballarò, a stone's throw from the market that offers a lively day and true fresco of Palermo, made of ' abbagnate ' and colourful stalls and where you can enjoy the typical street food of Palermo. Origlione House is a comfortable and prestigious refuge from which to enjoy a genuine cross-section of Palermo. The location of the House is within walking distance to the main tourist attractions of the city: just a few metres from the Cathedral, the Palazzo dei Normanni and Cappella Palatina, very close to Corso Vittorio Emanuele, one of the main lines from citizens to get quickly to the Church of the Martorana, the Vucciria market, Piazza Marina and the old Moorish quarter of the Kalsa. Along the nearby Corso Vittorio Eman...
Getting around
Along the nearby Corso Vittorio Emanuele pass both the tourist bus and urban bus lines that connect the city center with all areas of the town. It's about 1.5 km from the railway station and the bus station, where there are all the connection to get the airport of Palermo and Trapani, and the main tourist areas on the outskirts of Palermo and Trapani.
