WALKING TO SIGHTS IN PALERMO FROM WHERE WE ARE:
Once one has walked through the market and exits from Porta Carini, you walk (10 minutes) to the centre of posh Palermo (Via della Libertà) and the cultural Palermo (Teatro Massimo and Teatro Politeama – -both Opera Houses). And from there you can walk to all the amazing churches, museums, piazzas and admire the magnificent Arab-Norman architecture. Palermo is indeed a safe and amazing town – -a hidden jewel in the middle of an island that is in the middle of the Mediterranean.
The flat is located in the heart of Palermo. One can walk to Teatro Massimo (opera and music), the Salinas Archaeological Museum, the Teatro Politeama (also opera and music) the Modern Art Gallery, Piazza Pretoria & amazing fountain, the nearby old Martorana Orthodox church, the famous Palermo Arab-Norman Cathedral and the Norman Royal Palace with its gorgeous Cappella Palatina – -just to mention a few among the many nearby places of interest. Mondello, spectacular town and beach are 10km away.
