This is a very comfortable apartment with air conditioning, which in sweltering Palermo in summer time is essential. On the 6th floor, with garage parking suitable for small automobiles, also an essential if you are renting a car, the location is ideal. Only 2 blocks from Teatro Politeama, a location where On and Off Tour buses stop, shopping is found at the boutiques and a variety of street and higher price restaurants are plentiful, you can walk to many of the major tourist attractions, or take a short taxi ride, or a tour bus. Sandro's "mummy," lives in the apartment directly across from this apartment and was very helpful when we needed assistance. The apartment is located in a safe, older section of Palermo and the neighbors who you meet are very friendly. If you are driving, be sure to bring a Mobile phone with Google Maps or rent a GPS with the car. Getting around Palermo without a mobile or car GPS can be a nightmare. Ciao!
