Let yourself be guided among the treasures of Palermo by Planeta

Our Palermo Apartments are just few steps from the heart of the historic city center: disclose the whole spectrum of unforgettable experiences that the capital offers to the visitor, from culture to shopping, from monuments to gourmet halts. 

The baroque itinerary, from the Quattro Canti to the 18th century oratorios, marvellous architectural jewels decorated with stucco by the sculptor Giacomo Serpotta, to the Arab-Norman itinerary, now part of the UNESCO heritage; the royal palace and the cathedral, the Zisa and the Cuba palaces, represent an architectural style unique in the world, combining traces of Moslem and Christian design with their arabesques in Byzantine mosaics and garden fountains.

The Liberty facades that portray the structure of the city center, together with the impressive villas and the nineteenth-century theaters, enclose maze of alleys that will lead you towards the past.

Breathe the atmosphere of Palermo’s grand drawing room and discover the great displays of shops in Via Libertà and Via Ruggero Settimo. Look around you to find the best cafè, the most welcoming terrace for a quick lunch or the best gourmet restaurant for dinner.

Heading towards Via Maqueda, pause at the view of Palermo’s stupendous Teatro Massimo, the largest opera house and the third largest in Europe after those of Paris and Vienna, before continuing to the cathedral and immersing yourself in the true Palermo of alleys and markets.
