4.5
See how Italy's royalty lived at MUSEO PALAZZO MIRTO casa museo, a palace located in the historic center of Palermo. This building's earliest construction dates from the 13th century, when it was built as a citadel Arab fortress. For four centuries, it was home to the Filangeris--the most famous Norman family in southern Italy, descended from the storied knight Angerio. Having undergone significant restructuring in the 17th century, the palace now houses opulent 18th-century chandeliers, tapestries, and a smoking room with a Chinese leather floor.

  • You enter a world that you cannot ... Hidden in the folds of an aristocratic world of the past that no longer exists, but you can still appreciate the emotions.

  • huge Palace that gives a good overview of the wealth owned by the Italian aristocracy. Incalculable numbers of richly decorated rooms. We go out there and say that these people did not know what to do to dazzle their guests!

  • A wonderful museum to experience how the nobles live, as the museum was inhabited by the prince of Mirto until a few years ago.
  • Historic museum showing the history of the rich in Palermo. 2 floors of rooms showing artefacts and decoration of the past. Worthwhile if you're in the area although €6 is quite a lot for what you get. The security guards like to following you around like we were planning on taking something, a bit off putting. Guides are available in English.
  • One of my favorite attractions in Palermo, a well preserved noble residence of the last century. Small and easily visited by families and groups.
  • Very interesting, wonderful insight in the life of the very rich. Don't forget the kitchen and the stables
  • Beautiful, furnished with magnificence that testifies the pomp of ancient aristocratic families of Palermo. Certainly worth a visit. Free admission the first Sunday of every month.
