    Wasteful, but nice, inside there is not much but the mosaic of the fountain is worth the price of admission

    We did not read the reviews before going but it would have been better, too €6 for entry for what it offers the structure, disappointed. ...

    A building of rare elegance and simplicity of Arab/Norman derivation. Simple but kept in excellent condition. Lancet Windows, light, pottery and finely crafted brass pots. Few people. The yard from above has its because even if nn is very nice. Beside the castle is the castle chapel. It is accessible for free upon leaving the Castle. The figs and the rest of the vegetation there, drawing a nice corner of Palermo still too underestimated. Time to visit no more than an hour.

  • It's all right. Nothing g impressive. If you have no plans it's ok. To get there . Otherwise don't bother.
  • Very nice palace: witness of a very rich past. A little bit outside the city center but worth the visit.
  • Worth a visit if you are staying in Palermo for more than three days!
  • Doesn't appear to be special on the outside, inside is beautiful. Combine this with a visit to the catacombs
  • The building looks quite impressive from outside. However exhibition inside is rather poor. I would not recommend going inside.

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.
