Fabulous apartment in a perfect location.
Our stay in Calogero and Angela’s apartment was wonderful. The apartment is exactly as described - well equipped, spacious, quiet and safe. Calogero picked us up from the bus station, oriented us to the apartment and the area and provided information about the city, sights, and restaurants. He was readily available by email to answer questions and was so helpful and kind.
He drove us on a day trip to Monreale and Cefalù which made the trip very easy.
Their philosophy is that they want their renters to feel like friends and they truly accomplished that.
The owners have been excellent to communicate with. Angela has been helpful with email and Cal very helpful once we arrived. Our arrival check in with Calegero was thorough and very welcoming. The car space was just around the corner from the apartment. No need for a car in Palmero though, walking is the best way to see everything. The apartment is on th second floor by stairs. The property has one bedroom with ensuite and another separate bathroom. Two large bedrooms, comfortable lounge, sitting area and everything you need for the kitchen. Ideal for us as we were two couples travelling together. Bathrooms are modern, good water pressure and hot water. When you arrive, do not worry about the street looking unkept, once you are in the apartment it is very well maintained. I strongly suggest you take Cal's advice on restaurants. We had two wonderful dinners locally thanks to his suggestions. I would also suggest you do the street food tour. If we had more time we would have asked Cal if he would offer a private tour of the city for us as he is so knowledgeable. Just remember that Palermo is an old city, so no modern high rise buildings. This, of course, is part of its charm. Thank you Calegero and Angela for making us feel so welcome in Palermo.
Grazie, Laura. We hope to see you soon in Palermo! Best, Angela and Calogero
Calogero and Angela a great couple.
The property is just as described .Very clean and spacious.Calogero met us at the airport.
He was fantastic when my friend lost (or had her passport possibly stolen ?from her pocket at the airport )Calogero went to so much trouble to help her.Went with her to the police station and the embassy and then later to collect her emergency passport from the depot.
He was so kind and supportive.
We had some great meals out in Palermo and his recommendations were very good.
If we go back to Sicily we would stay in their apartment again .
Many thanks to Angela and Calogera.
Thanks for the review.
Fortunately everything was resolved to the best and you were able to leave. :)
We look forward to another holiday in Palermo, this time without unexpected events!
Angela and Calogero
Comfortable, near everything and save.
We had enough room, for the three of us. Everything we needed it was available. Angela and her husband were on top of everything,
Will see you soon
Thank you, Rosie! :)
In the short time we stayed at Calogero’s place he went out of his way to make us feel at home. Provided us with a map and recommendations on what to see and eat. Great place and very close to everything you would want to see and experience.
Thank you Josephine! You have to came back and stay longer! Hoping to see you soon, Angela and Calogero

The apartment is located in the heart of Palermo, 5 minutes walk from the theater Massimo, Piazza San Domenico, the baroque oratory of Santa Cita, the Castle at sea and the Cala, the old port city.
A few steps away is worth a visit Castello a Mare, built in Moorish times and transformed and reused as a fortress, prison and home.
Since the end of Via Cavour, turning the corner of the street, part of a beautiful and charming pedestrian promenade overlooking the sea on the moorings of boats where they meet for a drink and snacks local gracious.
And crossing the coast you will reach the historic center: Piazza Marina with its ancient trees where you hold a characteristic antique market, Palazzo Steri with its ancient prisons of the Inquisition, the Church of Santa Maria della Catena and Martorana, with its beautiful mosaics and Piazza Pretoria.
The promenade leading to the historic garden of Villa Giulia and the Botanic Garden, the largest in Europe, full of rare plant species.
A ten-minute walk you can reach the port, Politeama Square and the main shopping streets (Via Ruggero Settimo and Via della Libertà), the pedestrian area of Via Principe di Belmonte and the historic market Vucciria.
