La Terrazza sui Normanni

  • Apartment
via Cadorna 63 - 90134 Palermo - Palermo - Italy

The Terrace on Norman wants to be your home in Palermo, offering hospitality, information and tools to enable you to know and experience a complex city like Palermo in view of a responsible and sustainable tourism.

The Norman Terrace is the first small step towards realizing a great desire to make Palermo known in the way I learned to know it. What I would like to do is offer a city that is not just monuments and souvenirs but that it is emotions, beauty, stamina, sounds, flavors, smells and colors.

Because after years of conflict with this abused city, I have definitely fallen in love with it; I really owe it to so many friends scattered in Italy and outside that I had the pleasure to accompany her through the streets and they have made me the enormous gift of seeing them through their eyes, allowing me to see and appreciate so many facets that by living I did not have , incredibly, never noticed.

1) The Norman Terrace offers to all its guests a welcome kit consisting of a seasonal fruit basket, 3 proposals of classic itineraries (in the form of brochures) that will allow you to know the most famous monuments and markets of the old town only walking on foot with a maximum of 3 km; in addition the itinerary of the "must-see outside the walls"; the itinerary "for the little ones"; the gastronomic itinerary with the indication of "where to eat what"; the "night" itinerary to enjoy a Palermo that lives the road even at night; the "hidden treasures" route for the most demanding visitors; the itinerary of "Sicilian pride against the Mafia"; and finally, since you do not want to hide anything, the itinerary of "what we do not like". You will also find a collection of tabs with descriptions and curiosities on all the points in the brochures.
2) At the Terrace on the Normans you will find a small bookcase with the books I loved the most about Sicily and Palermo, my guests are invited to browse and respect them;
3) At the Terrace on the Normans you will find a small Hi-Fi system but you will not find a TV; for about 10 years I have removed this item from my home and my habits and in addition I find that on vacation in a city like Palermo it is almost a sacrilege to waste time in front of the TV, guests are rather invited to relax on the terrace of the apartment with a good book and the splendid view of the oldest parliament in the world; company games, coloring albums and cards are nevertheless available to the youngest.
4) The Norman Terrace wants to be "beautiful" so you will find works by young local artists, no big names just friends that I want to introduce you to know them and let them know.
5) The Norman Terrace is equipped with heating and air conditioning for the summer months, but in view of ecological sustainability guests are encouraged to use them in the right way.
6) Additional information will be provided before you arrive on city events, ways to get to the most distant places of interest from the center, or rent bikes at the nearby bike-point, and more.
