We spent our first 3 nights in Sicily here. We had a late flight into Palermo, rented a car and drove here, arriving at 9 pm. (I had pre-arranged from the States for dinner when we arrived). When we arrived, the daughter Allesandra was outside waiting for us! She spoke very good English. Her mother, Rosanna, fixed us dinner in their lovely dining room that night.
The purpose of my visit was to find records of my grandfather. Without Allesandra's help (she personally went to the church with me), I would not have attained an official baptismal record of my grandfather and learned the names of his parents. She also set me up with the town mayor's assistant. (I also met the mayor and he gave me books of the town and a certificate of welcome). These were very useful people who are helping me research my ancestry. Antonio, Allesandra's father, didn't speak English but he made the best cappucino! Oh, the hotel. It was very clean, very convenient for getting around. The views of the sea from the room were fabulous.
