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 Terrace on the Normans is the first small step towards the realization of a great desire to learn about Palermo in the way I got to know me. What I'd like to do is offer a city that is not just monuments and souvenirs but it is emotions, beauty, strength, sounds, tastes, smells and colors.

Because after years of conflict with this battered city I have finally and hopelessly in love; I owe much to the many friends scattered in Italy and out of that I have had the pleasure of accompanying his ways and that made me the enormous gift to make me see through their eyes, allowing me to see and appreciate the many facets that living there I had , amazingly, never noticed.

1) The Terrace on Norman offers to all its guests a welcome kit, composed of a basket of seasonal fruits, 3 proposals for classic routes (in the form of brochures) that will allow to know the most famous monuments and the old town markets moving only walk with routes of up to 3 km; more the itinerary of "must-see outside the walls"; the gastronomic route with an indication of "what to eat"; the "night" tour to enjoy a Palermo living the way even at night; the route of the "hidden treasures" for the discerning visitor; the route of '' Sicilian pride against the Mafia "; and finally, since you do not want to hide anything, the "route that we do not like." You will also find a collection of boards with descriptions and interesting facts about all the points proposed in the brochure.
2) At the Terrace on the Normans will find a small library with books that I most loved about Sicily and Palermo, my guests are invited to browse through them and to respect them;
3) At the Terrace on the Normans you will find a mini Hi-Fi system, but you will not find a television set; for about 10 years I deleted this item from my home and my habits and more I feel that being on vacation in a city like Palermo is almost a sacrilege to waste time in front of TV, guests are invited to relax on the pretty terrace of the apartment with a good book and the beautiful view of the oldest parliament in the world; board games, coloring books and papers are still available to children.
4) The Terrace on Norman wants to be "beautiful" so you will find works by young local artists, no big names only friends I want to introduce you may know them know them and facades.
5) The Terrace on Norman has heating and air conditioning for the summer months, but in a perspective of ecological sustainability guests are invited to use them in the right measure.
6) There will also be provided additional information prior to arrival of events in the city, how to move to the places of interest further away from the center or rent bicycles at the nearby municipal bike-point, and more.
