    Where to stay in Palermo

    Situated near all of the city's main attractions, Palermo's centrally located luxury hotels are an ideal retreat from Sicilian heat and noise. They offer spacious rooms with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, as well as access to rooftop terraces and outstanding downstairs eateries. A wide range of B&Bs just outside the busy heart of town offer a more affordable option complete with amenities such as private parking. Located in quiet residential neighborhoods, these B&Bs are only minutes from popular shops, restaurants, and nightclubs.
