  • We were shown around this beautifully restored palazzo by la Contessa Federico herself. She gave a lot of her time and was very open about what it was like to live her life. Fascinating.

  • Tour of the villa in Palermo, done by the son of the family still living there, who tells the story beautifully. Very interesting way to understand the city history better. Lovely and impressive artifacts. Beautiful Arabo-Norman architecture.
  • A spectacular palace in the heart of Palermo - this museum is probably one of the most interesting places that we saw in this city. The guide is the owner himself, he presented the amazing history of his family, living until today in the palace. Definitely worth a visit!
