Location description from owner

The Sicily region

Nature and history have combined to give Sicily its most striking feature: impressive monuments of the past set against backgrounds of astonishing natural beauty.

Etna. The 12th century cathedral at Monreale, a masterpiece of Norman architecture famous for its dazzling mosaics, commands unsurpassed views down the Conca d'Oro Valley, with Palermo and its bay visible in the distance.

The Sicily region

Nature and history have combined to give Sicily its most striking feature: impressive monuments of the past set against backgrounds of astonishing natural beauty. Climb the hill to the 3rd century BC Greek amphitheater at Taormina and experience a setting where nature enhances art: on one side stretches the dramatic, jagged coastline of the azure blue Ionian Sea, on the other, snow capped Mt. Etna. The 12th century cathedral at Monreale, a masterpiece of Norman architecture famous for its dazzling mosaics, commands unsurpassed views down the Conca d'Oro Valley, with Palermo and its bay visible in the distance.
With its location in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily became a bridge between the civilizations of the East and West. Peoples from the southern Mediterranean, including the Phoenicians, were the earliest settlers, but the island's growth, prosperity and cultural development began with Greek colonization in the 8th century BC. The powerful city-states of Syracuse, Catania, Selinute and Agrigento competed with each other to construct the most spectacular temples. The hauntingly beautiful Valley of the Temples, built parallel to the sea at Agrigento, are some of the best preserved outside of Greece. The Romans arrived in the 2nd century BC, followed by the Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and finally the Bourbons. Churches, temples, gardens, palaces and theaters from these civilizations are scattered throughout the island. However, it was during the Arab domination in the 9th and 10th centuries when Sicily's influence in trade and culture expanded, while the Norman occupation in the 11th and 12th centuries was a major artistic influence, leaving behind exquisite churches and palaces of Arab-Byzantine style.
Sicily has a remarkably varied landscape, with a mountainous interior, hills and plateaus, and a wildly beautiful coastline of rocky promontories, sheer cliffs, fine sand beaches, tiny coves and clear waters. Off shore are groups of smaller islands, some of volcanic origin; Stromboli, off the northern coast, has an active volcano. Breathtaking vistas abound: the semi-tropical landscape of lemon groves and pine forests; miles of sparkling sea shore dotted by small fishing villages; and towering mountains framed by a brilliant blue sky. With its mild climate and volcanic enriched soil, Sicily is an important agricultural center, growing vegetables and citrus fruit, including the famous blood oranges, and producing olive oil and wine. Luxuriant gardens with exotic plants grace the major cities, including Palermo, the capital.

Central Palermo

It’s a city of the south of Italy, on the northwestern coast of Sicily, on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s the capital of Sicily, an independent region of Italy. Palermo has got the largest port of Sicily. In the city there are many buildings that they have to go back from the period when Sicily was a Norman kingdom. There are also Arab, Byzantine and Spanish influences. Palermo was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC and was a Carthaginian colony. It was taken by the Romans . It subsequently passed into the hands of the Goths , the Byzantines , the Saracens , the Normans , and the Holy Roman emperors.
It is a trading centre for the island;s agricultural produce and has factories engaged in food processing,
shipbuilding, and the manufacture of furniture, leather products, glass, chemicals, cement, textiles, and paper.
This a very beautiful city for its monuments, its nature as the mountains, the sea, the trees and many other things. The most beautiful places in Palermo are the Cathedral, the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, the
Royal Palace with the Palatine Chapel and a lot of other places.
Near the centre of Palermo, in Saint Pellegrino Mountain, there is the sanctuary of Saint Rosalie, the patron saint of the city.

“Idéal pour découvrir Palerme et ses environs”

Appartement spacieux, fonctionnel et propre. Idéal pour découvrir le centre historique à pied et les environs en train, bus ou voiture. Propriétaire de très bon conseil et très à l'écoute de ses hôtes. Excellent séjour.

“Really comfortable beds!”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2016

The apartment is on a side street off a main road, and felt safe and secure. It's well located for shops and supermarkets. You can walk to the many place of interest in the city, or there are plenty of buses which run frequently and cheaply, using 90 minute or 24 hour tickets. There are 2 spacious double bedrooms with really comfortable beds. The apartment was well equipped, light and airy - very pleasant to stay in. Although there is no oven there is a combination microwave and large pans for cooking on the hob. The wi-fi was excellent, allowing us to watch UKTV on our computer without problems. The owner was welcoming, helpful and receptive to requests.

“tutto veramente bene”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

Sono stato a Palermo dal 23 al 26 agosto 2015 e sono rimasto molto soddisfatto. Eravamo in 6 , due genitori , tre figli e la suocera : appartamento grande e molto pulito. L’appartamento si trova a 100 metri dal politeama e dal Teatro massimo, quindi zona centralissima. Tutto quello che si vede nelle foto è lo specchio reale di quanto potete trovare . Il proprietario e’ persona veramente cortese e distinta . Direi che di più non potevo trovare e consiglio vivamente a tutti e soprattutto a chi ha dei figli come me questo appartamento

“Good central location, helpful host”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2015

The best place we stayed during our month in Italy. Central to the city, we had an interesting time finding the place in our rental car - Antonello had to come to rescue us. Not quite as manic driving as Naples, but working on it. Can walk to most places of interest in Palermo, and plenty of restaurants about, although we did find some of them closing early - presumably because they are quieter in winter. Good sized comfortable bedrooms, although the kitchen is a bit on the small side and it would have been nice to have an full oven. All good apart from that.

“An Oasis in Palermo”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2014

We stayed 3 nights in Casa Soliva on our arrival in Palermo. It is a lovely apartment and spacious with 2 large bedrooms. It is tastefully decorated and light and airy. Everything went well from booking to check out and we couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation. Antonello was a great host, he provided clear details (which we misread) on how to get to the flat and came to rescue us as we stood on the square near the apartment. He met us and showed us around and was available for assistance should we require it. He gave good advice about restaurants and places to visit. The flat had all the amenities we needed and was in an ideal location and easy to access via airport bus with a stop just a couple of blocks from the flat. It is also within easy access of a lot of notable sites /shops and close to public transport. The main termini is about 20-30 minutes walk, but local buses are close and regular. Because of it's location it was a little noisy at night if you slept with the windows and shutters open. It was the weekend though so we weren't bothered by it. As it was wet we kept them partly closed and it was fine. There is airconditioning if required. Overall a very pleasant apartment and we would definitely recommend it.

“Spacious apartment in central location”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2014

This is a light, spacious, well-equipped apartment on the first floor of a building equipped with a lift. It is located close to the centre of Palermo and is ideal for exploring on foot the historic city centre. It has two spacious double bedrooms and a sofa bed and fold up single bed for extra guests. The lounge dining room was roomy enough for our family of four adults and two small children. The kitchen was a little snug, but adequate to our requirements as the apartment is close to a myriad of excellent eating options. Antonello was the perfect host, warm and welcoming, and provided us with all necessary information, maps etc to enable us to make the most of our visit to this wonderful city.

Everything was perfect. Thanks a lot to Antonello who welcomed us! The flat is modern, spacious, so clean, calm... It's very near from the bus stations to mondello (beach) or to airport. Very near from the places to visit in Palermo. THANKS again
