Apartment San Domenico
Elegance and comfort in a magnificent
aristocratic residence at the historic heart of Palermo
Located within Palazzo Alliata, a quintessential aristocratic palace in the atmospheric historic centre of Palermo, San Domenico is a magnificent apartment that has been completely restored and is utterly suffused with charm. The apartment is accessed via a private flight of steps leading up directly from the palazzo’s splendid courtyard. There is a roomy entrance hall, a spacious reception room, a separate dining room, two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, one double and one twin. The kitchen is superbly equipped.
Furniture is a felicitous combination of historic family heirlooms with well-chosen pieces of contemporary design.
The Palazzo is located right in the centre of Palermo close to Piazza San Domenico, the major shopping street of Via Roma and the vibrant historic markets of the Vucciria and Il Capo. During the day the street outside the palazzo is full of market stalls selling clothes and bric a brac, while at night the area has a far quieter, aristocratic mood.
The palazzo is located within a zone where traffic is (happily) restricted, known as a ZTL. Cars can be parked outside the ZTL in a private car park, where you can pay by the day or for the entire period of your stay. Alternatively, access to the ZTL is permitted with a pass, available for €5 a day from authorized tobacconists.
