Great apartment in the heart of town!
My husband and I really liked this little apartment -- it's located just a block from the Teatro Massimo, with the shopping district to the north (literally the next block is where it begins) and right on the main pedestrian road leading south into the old part of Palermo. There is no parking included with the apartment, but the street parking is really easy and cheaper than most garages. For 1 euro an hour, there are only 10 chargeable hours M-S (sundays are free) and you can pay it all at once and put a ticket on your dash. You really don't need a car at all, though, as there's a ton to see and do all in less than a mile easy walking. Guilia was a most helpful and responsive host -- she responded to emails quickly and answered all my questions. Note: You will also pay 1.5euro per person/per night hotel tax. Be prepared! The apartment is very comfortable (including the bed) and had everything we needed. Some people have mentioned the noise from the street below -- we were there on a holiday night and then through the weekend. Every night there were loud people on the street small plaza at the restaurants and cafes below. Yes, it was loud when the windows were open. We didn't mind that -- it's a lively town! But when we were ready to sleep, we closed the windows and turned on the AC and the sound was not a problem at all. Very safe and secure — located right in the heart of Palermo. Highly recommended!
Hi Jeannette, many thanks for your wonderful review! I'm very happy you were well in my apartment. I hope to see you again one day!

Casa Cavour was an absolutely ideal location in Palermo. Giulia was wonderful, very helpful about finding things in Palermo, providing me with a map of the city and pointing out various locations that may be helpful. She even set out biscuits and made sure there was milk and cold water in the fridge! The building is very nice, and in the daytime there is a doorman. The apartment itself is exceptionally clean and has everything you might need during your stay. The apartment has wifi, but also there is a computer should you be traveling without a laptop. Also, the a/c is a real lifesaver if traveling there in the summer! (units in both the living room as well as the bedroom).
Casa Cavour is located right at the transition between the modern shopping district and the old city center of Palermo, making it very convenient for both purposes. Teatro Massimo is just steps away, and the Capo Market is only a short distance beyond that. The area is very nice, with a perpetual exchange of shoppers and diners. At no point during my time in Palermo did I feel less than secure while staying here.
All in all my stay at Casa Cavour was exceptional. The only potential drawback is that the windows overlook a square with many popular bars and restaurants with terraces, so at night you do get some of the noise from below. I found that with earplugs this became no problem.

"Casa centrale e molto comada. Fornita di tutto. Non è necessario affittare una macchina, è tutto a portata di mano. Il quartiere è animato e nelle vicinanze ci sono molti locali. La proprietaria è stata molto cortese è disponibile."
(Text automatically translated) From the airport take the bus to get to the city center and get off at Politeama, 500 m walk and you're there. A 1 km walk from the port, the train station about 1.5 km (reachable by bus in 10 min!)
(Text automatically translated) The area is very lively at night especially on weekends and during the summer. There are many restaurants, pizzerias, pubs in the immediate vicinity. The apartment overlooks a lively square is closed to traffic and local music. A few steps from the Teatro Massimo, one of the largest opera houses of Europe. Among the Via Roma and Via Ruggero Settimo, the main shopping streets in Palermo! The main attractions are all within walking distance in a matter of minutes! We rent ONLY for tourism or business for other purposes ... NO!
