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 center of Palermo, make sure you inform me about that, so I can tell you where to take your 5-euros daily entrance ticket and how to activate it in order to get in the city centre without getting fined.

Palermo was beautiful and the apartment was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. It was centrally located. If was fun staying in one of the quarters. The apartment was roomy. The kitchen was well appointed. We had a problem with the water heater. There is a switch in the kitchen that controls the water heater and accidentally got switched off. Chiara was great and gave us great information on what to do and see. She even recommended a great wine store. I would definitely recommend staying with Chiara.

Great apartment, fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great apartment. Very clean, fantastic location in one of the old quarters of Palermo. Chiara was a wonderful host, very helpful with some great suggestions of things to do. The showers aren't great, but they do the job. Would still definitely recommend this place.

Simply the best! Chiara's beautifully appointed apartment met all of our accommodation requirements. Situated in the older section of Palermo, it is close to great shopping, excellent restaurants, a stone's throw from the train station and a short walk to the Palermo Yacht Club. Chiara is the pentultimate host - cheerful and always ready to assist wherever necessary. She was able to provide us with a delightful guide for half a day - an adventure not to be missed! Thank you again, Chiara, for making our stay most memorable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Palermo and the apartment and Chiara played a big part in that. The apartment is in the perfect location. It is very chic as Chiara would say, and that description fits nicely. We were in Italy for three weeks, Bologna, Rome, Taormina, Lipari, and Palermo. I love to eat and for me, Palermo has the best food, especially if you like sea food. You will not have a better host than Chiara, she was always at our disposal. Thanks Chiara

This is Definitely the Best Place!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely the best place to stay in the middle of the old town while in Palermo. Location perfect. Walk to all the sites, restaurants and supermarkets. The apartment is lovely and very inviting. It is modern including the kitchen. It is also very clean and well maintained. We loved being on the small balcony and felt like part of a community. Chiara gave us a list of restaurants and we ate at most of them. Excellent and helpful choices all in the area. Don't miss the Antica Focacceria San Franceso and see and sample the most delicious looking array of food. You'll be tempted to try one of everything. The Carrfoore super market is a 5 minute walk which is similar to a Whole Foods with its deli/gourmet food section. Chiara was very accommodating and met us at 8:00 pm. Our special arrival treat was spectacular and delicious. This apartment is a must to stay in. Don't spend time looking further for apartments. You won't find a better one. The photos are accurate.
