Palazzo Conte Federico, Palermo

(4.8/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Obligatory stop in Palermo, visit this Palace means visit the story that not only that of a family that descended from an illegitimate child of Frederick's son but it is the very history of the town of Palermo. Here everything is alive, everything is history. The prosecution for not protecting this national heritage in addition to siciliano's Common to the region, made not curing but ready to parlade of our cultural heritage as a source of job and progress. Sorry but it's anger is too good to be forgotten. Us lovers of art and the beauty of our country can only go and contribute with our ticket. Congratulations to the Federico family

  • A unique place where you can step back in time. The owner of casa exhibits with passion and pride the wonder that has preserved till nowadays. Does all of this with the simplicity and authenticity of a neighbor.

  • It is a mansion inhabited by cordial people owners and of course excellent guides. In addition to the peculiarities of the building within the objects of the collection are an attraction in attractiveness. I highly recommend visiting

  • 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!
