Museo Regionale Palazzo Mirto, Palermo
(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
See how Italy's royalty lived at Museo Regionale Palazzo Mirto, 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.

  • A palace where you can feel at home, in their everyday lives. The story of so many lives in the beauty of the objects collected.

  • With its rooms furnished and full of furnishings, is an insight into the life of the past. Nice to visit and nice to imagine ita of persons who lived there.

  • Noble palace furnishings and well kept and preserved, not to be missed. The staff was particularly friendly, if it is present and available ask of Mr. Dolphin, made as a guide explaining in detail all secrets of the building, made our visit special and unique. One tip, remember to ask for tickets allowing you to spend less, if you decide to visit other palaces or museums, since from this point of view, Palermo is not cheap.

  • 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
  • Splendid residence of Palermo nobile, well kept. A guide on tablets help during your visit. Besides the beauty of the main floors to appreciate the stables with carriages and original stalls
