  • It seems a shame that such a renowned and very frequented by children, because there is a playground, has to "years" the swing route!! But I tell you more. If it were broken in sense unusable then with warnings written or barriers, it would be more dignified. Instead the swing is within the reach of all children with serious risk of getting really sick! Layabouts of the municipality what are you waiting for to fix it? That some kid gets hurt and then you would have to pay also the expenses for damages? Shame!!

  • The building is nice, but there is very little, restored brick and reinforced concrete, set up really bad. I visited other palaces (both in Palermo and in the rest of Europe) and I find preposterous the cost of €6 without guides, no brochures, no nothing except some informative totem scattered far and ...

  • Yesterday we visited the Zisa Castle under a new perspective and dimension as there was a sound and light show that were projected on the outside. Video mapping. Experience pleasant and very impressive that this seemed even more the beauty of the artwork itself the so-called night Unesco

  • Fascinating building clearly showing the difference between original features and the conservation repairs. Remember to take a guide in your own language though as all the information is in Italian only (unlike some of the other UNESCO sites we visited in Palermo which included French and English texts). Friendly and helpful staff, and some good exhibits.
  • It is amazing for travelers like me to see middle ages Asia style and early Europe ideas melting in one building: it has a lot of thing that are just not should be together. Palace would open its design, history and more flavor to tourist acquainted with history and loving details. Start from the street plates and guides that are found throughout the city and in here in Italian/Arabic/Jewish.
  • Excellent monument of medieval Normano - Arabic culture and architecture. Must see place at Palermo. You have to buy a ticket to get in. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo.
  • It is a place which has a lot to say. Of course you should read something about it before. Regarding the view and the garden they are nice and they give you a excellent panoramic view of Palermo.
  • Quiet empty regarding what to see inside, the signs were all in Italian so for any non native speakers it was a struggle to understand what you were looking at. But in all a beautiful and we'll maintained structure
