Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment so I have flexible ceck in and ceck out time!
When you will arrive I will be at home to give you the keys of the apartment and of your room, also I will give you a small map of the city, and if you want i will give you some tips about the city (where you can eat for a cheap price, main street market and main monument you can visit in the city center)!
Our apartment is in the heart of the old part of the city, that's the reason because I always suggest to visit the city by foot. In 5 minutes by foot you can walk through the street market of Ballarò, (that is one of the ancient e and biggest markets of the city) and see his gorges colors, you can reach the nice boulevard of the port (I love to see the sunrise there!); you also should see Botanic Garden (12 minute walking), and Piazza Marina where is the the oldest and biggest Ficus three of Italy; you can also visit the gourges fountain of Piazza Pretoria (Fontana Pretoria o della Vergogna). In a walking distance I think you should see Palatin chapel (that is inside Royal Palace) with its very bright mosaics; or if you like horror and weird stuff you will appreciate the Catacomb of Cappuccini.
Also city center is famous for street food, you can have a big Arancina at bar Touring (close to the port) or eat a super delicious "panino panelle e crocchè" ( a typical sandwich) at the famous hosteria " nni Franco u vastiddaro for a really cheap price. You can also have lunch at Zia Pina where you can choose your fish and they will cook it for you! But if you are tired if you'd like, on request, I can prepare dinner for you ( just you should book it during the morning) and you can have dinner on the terrace!
The apartment is located near Piazza Julio Cesare, the central train station and bus terminal in Palermo, which is connected to all the main streets of the city, but with train or busses you can also easily reach some small nice town close to Palermo as Cefalù (that's my favorite!), a small meddle age city on the beach that you can reach in 50 minute with train.
