Our host Francesco, greeted us on arrival and showed us to our apartment, which is part of the villa. Francesco also showed us around his beautiful home which...

About the neighbourhood
Mondello is a small borough of the city of Palermo in the autonomous region of Sicily in Southern Italy. Its beach lies between two mountains: Mt Gallo and Mt Pellegrino. The town was originally a small fishing village situated on marshland, but at the end of the 19th century it was drained and grew into a favourite tourist destination.From 1912 onwards Mondello became the seat of the aristocracy. The nobility of the city fostered the construction of several exclusive and aristocratic nautical clubs, the construction of villas, lush gardens. King Ferdinand of Bourbon called it: a corner of paradise. Eventually, the tourist resort of Mondello became popular. Mondello is characterized by a white sandy beach (1.5 km long) and sea water of trop

The best way to reach Palermo is by airplane. From airport to Palermo-Mondello (or Palermo downtown) there is a bus. When you arrive in Palermo you have to take a local bus to Mondello (number 806). You can ask the driver to let you off in 'Piazza della Esedra-viale della Libertà' where you can take the local bus to Mondello or a taxi if you don't arrive too late at night. Don't forget to buy tickets before taking the local bus. The best way, in my opinion, is to take a taxi from the airport to Mondello which will bring you to my home (address: viale Principessa Giovanna n. 2); the cost is about 40-45 Euros. I suggest asking the driver how much it costs before you get in and at your arrival ask for the receipt. From Piazza della Esedra to Mondello-Valdesi the cost of Taxi s... more
