Palazzo Conte Federico, Palermo

4.8
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.

  • An oasis of calm in the busy Palermo. We visited the Palace accompanied so very friendly and thoroughly by one of the sons of the landlord. We recommend everyone visiting, the cost of the ticket is worth is amply justified considered high maintenance costs. Taking into account that sometimes you spend figures for things of less value.

  • Great warm tour by a racing car driver and his Austrian wife. A great sample of all that's great in Europe. Old world royalty, la vita è bella royalty and bureaucracy and mobsters.
  • The place to see in Palermo! Great tour with perfect guide
  • We were two foreigners in a group of 9Italians and so maybe it could not be helped that the explanation provided in English was only 1/20th of the total time I had to spend waiting there (waiting for the longggg Italian explanations to be done). Would have felt better without a guide at all.
  • Beautiful Aristocratic Palace, in the heart of Palermo. Worth to visit!
  • The greatest palace in Palermo with very interesting history. The guide was very kind. It was really worth to visit this place. 5/5
