Grand Art Nouveau villa with elegant rooms, a fine dining restaurant and a pool overlooking the Bay of Palermo
Overlooking the Bay of Palermo, the Grand Hotel Villa Igiea MGallery is one of the finest examples of Sicilian Art Nouveau architecture on the island. The villa was restored by modernist architect (and Palermo native) Ernesto Basile in the early 1900s, and its Old World charm is alive and well today. In the elegant guestrooms you’ll find lofty ceilings, floral walls and fabrics, gold framed prints and dark furnishings. Each is individually designed, and some offer views of the Tyrrhenian Sea or the Pellegrino mountains. Spend lazy days lounging by the outdoor pool or strolling through the extensive palm tree–studded grounds. In the evening sip a prosecco on the terrace overlooking the harbor before dining on Sicilian specialties at the Donna Franca Florio restaurant or sampling the gourmet tasting menu at Cuvée du Jour, a fancy fine dining room strung with chandeliers.
In the Area
Palermo's 12th-century cathedral is a striking example of the Arab-Norman architectural style unique to Sicily. For an art fix, see works by Sicilian painters at the Galleria Regionale della Sicilia, housed in a 15th-century palazzo, or, for contemporary works, head to the Galleria d'Arte Moderna. See a performance at Teatro Massimo, a neoclassical opera house that was featured in the last scene of The Godfather III. The Mercato di Ballaro is the city's busiest street market, a great place to stock up on Sicilian produce and vintage clothes.
