4.8
#13 of 52 in Historic Sites in Palermo
Architectural Building Historic Site
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.

  • I'm out! A great warm and informative. The tour is done by the Countess she even who is friendly and charming! Not to be missed!

  • A very pleasant visit, led by count himself, who brought us beautiful and charming rooms of this building by telling the story of his family. Highly recommended.

  • Enjoyable visit accompanied by count; I can't tell if the stories are true or not, but for that I turn to history books.

  • 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
  • Very nice historical building in which you learn the epochs of time. Through the very informative guide, you will learn the history of Palermo.

  • A historical building, still inhabited by its owners, who will welcome you and make you share their rich history of very interesting way

  • 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!
