The Italian city most full of life
Palermo: a city once feared for its Mafia activity, now revitalised as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. There are few cities even in a country as rich as ours which can boast such a colourful old town, such greenery and so much sun – even in winter. At Palermo Blu our team loves nothing more than helping you discover all these wonders during your holiday here:
Our apartments are all located within the historic old town of Palermo (see map). Palermo Blu offers a wide choice: from quality affordable accommodation to the most refined luxury. We understand that any holiday begins with convenient and comfortable base, and our team is at your disposal to find the right choice for you.
Palermo is a city made for true explorers, ready to experience the city in all its varied facets. It’s an easy city to immerse yourself in, and a hard one to say goodbye to – trust us, we never managed to! At Palermo Blu we can’t wait to help you discover sides of Palermo that can go overlooked, but which in reality contain the soul of the city. Huge thanks go to our good friends at the Filly Biz team for their wonderful photos.
Dear friends of Sicily, we invite you to join the Facebook group “Trip Tipp Sicily”. Find answers to all your questions and discover exclusive tips for your trip to Sicily from those who have already made the journey and those who already know the island from the inside out.
The Essence of Sicily
Palermo, and Sicily at large, are so much more than the clichés of Mafia, fashion and devotion to the Madonna. This beautiful video introduces the long history of the sun-bathed island we love and call home. We at Palermo Blu thank the team of film-makers for this outstanding work and congratulate them on their success:
Palermo’s battle against the Mafia began in earnest over 50 years ago. It was hard and led many tragic casualties, but they did not make their sacrifices in vain. Today Palermo is the Italian city with the lowest crime rate. Special thanks for the photo shoot to our good friends on the Filly Biz team.
Palermo Blu is here to help you organise a dream holiday in Palermo – the open, welcoming and above all safe city we are proud to call home. The historic old town in particular awaits you with its wonderful fusion of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern style, borne of a long and storied history.
Our apartments are all found at the very heart of historic Palermo. Palermo Blu accommodation is the perfect base for exploring Palermo on foot. And we offer a wide choice: from good quality affordable accommodation to the most refined luxury.
