APARTMENT 9

Palermo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

With Beautiful Antique Furniture, Air Conditioning, Free Internet Access

Elegant, comfortable apartments in a carefully restored 18th century palazzo by the sea in the heart of the historical district of Palermo, in the Kalsa quarter, once the Emirs's citadel. The palazzo has been the last home of Prince Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, author of the world famous novel 'The Leopard'. It is within walking distance of the main artistic and touristy attractions, shops, restaurants, supermarkets. In each apartment you'll find suggestions about where to eat and shop, along with maps and guide books. The palazzo was built on the 16th century city ramparts and is facing the wonderful bay of Palermo. On the waterfront below it there is a beautiful park ideal for walking, running, jogging, playing football, flying kites or simply admiring the ships entering or leaving the port.

Each apartment has beautiful antique furniture, A/C, central heating, fully equipped kitchen, bed bath & kitchen linen, Internet access, TV, DVD &CD player, weekly cleaning service.

The palazzo and its history: The palazzo in which the apartments are located was built in the 18th century on the 16th century Spanish city ramparts. In the mid-18th century it became a college for the education of young aristocrats. In 1849 the palace became the property of Giulio Fabrizio Tomasi di Lampedusa, the prince-astronomer who was the model for the main character in 'The Leopard', the world famous novel written by the prince's great-grandson Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The palazzo was the last home of the author, until his death in 1957, and is now the home of his adoptive son, who has carefully restored it.

Enjoy Saint Rosalia's fireworks from your window!: The mid-12th century virgin hermit Rosalia was adopted as patron saint of Palermo in the 17th century after the discovery of her bones, on 14 July 1624, ended a dreadful plague which ravaged Palermo. In recognition and thanksgiving every year since 1624 a spectacular festival, the Festa di Santa Rosalia or Festino, takes place from 11 to 15 July. All kinds of festivities go on throughout the historic centre, including plays, music, and food. The Festino is the last of Europe's great baroque festivals. On July 14 the saint's statue is taken from the Cathedral and solemnly put on a gigantic triumphal chariot, wonderfully decorated, in the form of a ship. The procession crosses the city amid thick crowds of jubilant people. As soon as the sumptuous chariot reaches the sea at the Foro Italico, just below our property, an amazing firework display explodes in a breathtaking fantasy of light and sound that lasts one hour. A unique, unforgettable experience not to be missed!

Sicilian Cooking classes: Sicilian cooking classes are available. Please contact the owner for details.

Nous avons passe 5 jours merveilleux dans cet appartement situe en plein coeur de Palerme. On s'y sent vraiment chez soi tant l'accueil de la proprietaire des lieux est chalereux et plein d'attentions. Nous avons meme eu droit a une visite guidee du palais avec tous les details de la vie passee du Prince de Lampedusa et sa famille. Un lieu empreint d'histoire qui ajoute a la magie du sejour, sans compter toutes les commodites offertes par l'appartement : pieces vastes et possedant tout le confort, decor raffine : tous les details sont tres soignes. Deux belles terrases pour prendre ses repas ou lezarder au soleil, avec une magnifique vue. Merci beaucoup a Nicoletta pour sa gentillesse et son erudition.

SEA VIEW APARTMENT PALERMO

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was accurate - perhaps it didn't do it true
justice - it was better than we expected

The property was very clean and in excellent condition - everything
in working order.

The owner provide excellent customer service and was available 24-7.

We would definitely recommend this property to any of our friends or
relatives.

Because of the location in the historic area the sites (churches- museums- botanical gardens) were all with walking district and were
very interesting.

We give this apartment an "Excellent Rating".
