Palazzo Conte Federico, Palermo
(4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
A Palermo landmark and a supremely luxurious residence, Palazzo Conte Federico provides insight into life as a European aristocrat. The Hohenstaufen-descended count or his multi-talented wife will take you on a tour of their home (also a bed and breakfast), where you can glimpse fine decorations from around the world. Inspect a wealth of interesting artifacts, including antique armchairs, religious frescoes, and suits of armor. If you're lucky, the Countess may even treat you to a performance in the concert hall, where the impressive piano was once used by Wagner. Put Palazzo Conte Federico into our Palermo holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • On the occasion of "the ways of treasures", visited the Palazzo Conte Federico. But the beauty of the rooms, etc. can not be described in words you have to see them. Count Alessandro in person, very kind and learned there has revived a thousand years of history through the visit of the various rooms of the Palace. Not to be missed

  • Beautiful building! Flawless Guide!! Herschel has guided us through the rooms of his house, where everything had a history and a soul.

  • Where else is there that: you visited a Palace, which is inhabited by the ducal family, and is run by the Comtessa personally! Countess Alwine speaks several languages perfectly, is very amiable and educated, former opera singer, the count a successful racing driver - short, a sensational experience! And those who are interested in Wagner: the wings on which the Parsifal was composed, gets to see you too.

  • Outstanding place discovered on the visit, very kind and generous welcome by the family themselves and the house if full of surprises mixing old and modern. For those keen about vintage cars, go and have a look, talk to the conte himself as well.
  • one of the most beautiful Palazzos in Palermo, with possibility for a guided tour
  • Entering the House of count Frederick equates to do a small journey through time that seems to stand still, entering the inner courtyard and stunning lounges arranged around it. Is a rare example of House-Museum, complete with a Norman Tower (the last of the old town that's still intact) where you live and there is so much, so much story to re-discover. I recommend a visit to anyone interested to see Palermo from insider and understand beauty and contradictions. Thanks for the sincere welcome!
