Contemporary design with real style.
Nowhere is Sicily's exciting past more evident than in its capital city. Originally Phoenician, then a Carthaginian colony, built on a natural harbour and beneath the towering Monte Pellegrino, its setting is as dramatic as its chequered history. At the heart of the city is the Baroque Quattro Canti (Four Corners), which divides the historic centre into four parts, all of which are accessible, on foot, from here. Wherever you go, around every corner, behind every decaying façade, there are wonderful things to discover - Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, mediaeval, Baroque, Art Nouveau - in a maze of time and style. Palermo hints at the mystery of its way of life, with an atmosphere, which excites and feels exotic. It is a truly enthralling city.
"The Hotel Porta Felice in Palermo was first class in every way, beautifully done up in a very modern style with most comfortable rooms, just ten/fifteen minutes walk from the Quatro Canti, and fifty yards the other way on the main road a scruffy little cafe which served gorgeous ice cream (laced with booze!!) Five minutes away was the Piazza Marina with restaurants, bars and a square where one could sit and watch the world go by. The lovely little hotel restaurant on the roof top balcony really did serve excellent beautiful tasting food and wine and we would have been quite happy eating there every evening, although we did venture forth for a couple of meals." Geoff & Thelma, Fleet
“We were made to feel welcome immediately on stepping through the door. The reception staff were all helpful on giving advice & directions to guide us round the city. Our room was beautiful and the décor throughout the hotel imaginative.” David & Lynda, Malvern
