Palazzo Brunaccini, Palermo
This former aristocratic palazzo, once home to the Brunaccini family, has been refurbished to provide a sophisticated, modern hotel in the heart of the historic centre of Palermo. Set amidst the atmospheric but slightly rundown setting of the Ballarò market, the hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the city’s food markets and churches.
Step in from the slightly chaotic surrounding streets into an elegant lobby with leather armchairs and floors scattered with oriental rugs.
Accommodation is in a choice of studios, suites and two-floor apartments, all with modern bathrooms and with space for up to four people. Bedrooms are a minimum 18sqm and overlook the square or narrow streets of the old town; apartments have compact concealed kitchens and comfortable living areas.
Amenities include luxury toiletries, hairdryer, WI-FI and in the apartments, a fridge, microwave oven and dishwasher.
Outside, a courtyard provides the perfect setting for an extensive buffet breakfast and evening drinks. Dinner is in the stylish and highly-regarded Ballarò restaurant which opened in 2013.
Only a block away from the bustling market, Palazzo Brunaccini is tucked away in a piazzetta close to the Cathedral, the Capella Palatina and several impressive churches but the real beauty of the city is the ability to get to most places of interest within a 30 minute stroll.
Palazzo Brunaccini is also just a few blocks from the station and from here there are quick connections to the airport.
A short bus ride out of town, directly from the hotel, takes you to the turquoise waters of Mondello Beach where the 2km long stretch of fine white sand is fringed with Art Nouveau villas, cafés, boutiques and excellent seafood restaurants.
Another popular excursion is a visit to the Norman cathedral at Monreale.
2018 is the year of Palermo becoming Italian Capital of Culture and hosting the 12th edition of Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art.
Activities and initiatives will take place not only in Palermo itself, but throughout the greater metropolitan area, from Monreale to Castelbuono in the Madonie Mountains.
Additionally, Palermo’s Teatro Massimo announced a dynamic 2018 opera and performance season that will include Verdi’s Nabucco, Puccini’s Turandot, and the contemporary ballet, Adam’s Passion.
