We arrived in Palermo on a Sunday to find that the Via Roma was closed for a market which sent us off on a long and involved car journey round Palermo to get to the flat. When we got there, the area was all shuttered up (it being Sunday), everything seemed a bit dusty, battered cars were parked rather randomly. However, once we got into the flat (doors with locks that would do credit to Fort Knox), it was a little haven of peace. It does not have an oven or a washing machine, but was fine for our mixed self-catering and restaurant purposes. Also you get a croissant and coffee at the next door bakers for breakfast thrown in. And you quickly discover how conveniently situated it all is, just off the Via Della Liberta, Palermo's equivalent of Oxford Street and a 20 minute pleasant stroll into the centre of town. We did establish a good route out to the Ring Road to go travelling, but never really hit upon a straightforward route back. Still we saw alot of Palermo by accident this way and there is so much to see and do in Palermo itself, there were days we never moved the car from its parking spot.
The apartment was situated near the main strip and was only a short walk into all the main areas of Palermo. Raul who manages the apartment rent was massively helpful when I lost my phone in the taxi and tried to call around the taxi firms to get it back.
The apartment itself if very big with really nice large bed and the best shower and bathroom we stayed in on holiday. The area is a slight down point, but I never felt unsafe in anywhere. This place is certainly great value and quality for anyone looking to stay in Palermo.
