About Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini

I am a very lucky person: I born in Palermo. I completed my study in Milano, I lived in Rome for a long time and now I share my time between Umbria and Palermo.

Palermo has grown a lot and in these last years and it has become a modern welcome city, where you can find the key of all other cultures in Italy.

Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini chose Palermo

This property to have a nice refuge in Palermo in a beautiful area, with a very pleasant and well maintained public garden ( like almost all gardens in Palermo) nearby, the food market on wednesday, in the square in front of the garden. Close to via Libertà that cross all the town and where you can get the 101, the bus that cross the area center until the railway station. On the other side the 806 to reach Mondello our beautiful beach. In front of the house the office of the public car and bike sharing. Really a good service.

What makes this apartment unique

The private parking inside the house, the proximity to the center , the air conditioned that is very pleasant in the hot nights during the summer (In the days there is always a pleasant breeze to refresh the air coming from the sea) and to heat the apartment in winter. The wonderful garden where to spend some moment of relax alone or with the children at the playground.

Great apartment is one of the best area in Palermo.

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept apartment with everything you need for your stay. Maria Luisa does a great job to making you feel welcomed in her home. Parking space was available and for anyone who rents a car there knows that having a space to park is a gift. I will definitely rent again when I will go back to visit

The apartment is located in a residential area in Palermo, walking distance from supermarkets, restaurants and wine bars; the apartment is near the famous Via della Liberta best place to shop, upscale Italian chain line the boulevard between teatro Politeama and Piazza Crispi;

Lovely apartment, practically located and secure.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and secure accomodation in the heart of Palermo. Close to bus stop and local amenities. Host very accommodating and helpful.The apartment was tastefully decorated and equipped with all necessities.

Areas with room for improvement would be :

Kitchen would benefit from being modernised with cabinets .

No electrical appliances(kettle, iron, hairdryer) could be used when the air conditioning was on as the fuse tripped which was inconvenient.

Some more information on local transport and tourist brochures in the apartment would be helpful.

House Giusti is in a residential area, near Villa Sperlinga, a very pleasant public garden with a playground with tunnel, slide, two swings.

In front of the house there is the bike-sharing and car -sharing office at via Giusti 7/B where you could do a contract for one week ( 8€) to get the bikes at 50cnt per half an hour, or a car; there are a lot of places to let the bikes/car in the town and than to collect it to come back home. ( other fifty cents)

The area is reach of very good restaurants and Bar which the most famous is Bar Costa, a joy for the eyes, first.

Conad Supermarket is just round the corner.

A lot of good labels in via Sciuti, right above to house. The most important labels of the word in the near : via Libertà that cross, changing name, all town, crossed by the bus n. 101.

If you wants to go to the see side don't miss Mondello beach, where there are several free entries and where you can ask the access to our nautical club Roggero di Lauria if you stay one week at least.

To forget Palerme is impossible: the city where the trees expand their foliage for tens of meters, where beauty is besieged by the ruin of time. Where it is difficult to realize own ambition if you don't go away, far from this land on the border of Europe. From the house get the bus n. 1 that cross Palermo passing through the beautiful Giardino Inglese ( Inglish Garden), the road of all the best fashion label- Via Libertà, Teatro Politeama and Piazza Castelnuovo, Teatro Massimo the third largest Opera house in Europe after The Opera house in Paris and the one in Vienna. Then through via Maqueda towards the older part of Palermo : 4 Canti di Città with to one side the Cathedral of Palermo is beautiful from the outside, with its elegant architecture Arab-Norman (With your digital camera destroyed the false dome added in XVIII century.Palermo) and the Royal Palace: on the other side Porta Felice the entry from the sea, the next side ,Palazzo Pretoria and the beautiful fountain de la Vergogna.

Walk in the alley with faith. In the northern part of Palermo is the Cattedrale di Monreale, the most beautiful of all ( I mean all the churches in Italy :-)): without contamination from other eras, commissioned by King Frederick II Normand, conceived as a unicuum, its mosaics tells the entire Bible; beautiful the Cloister with thin columns An unusual and very satisfying tour: discover the beautiful churches adorned by Serpotta, Oratorio di San Lorenzo e the Church of San Domenico. Walking toward Garden Garibaldi, don't miss to taste a great ice-cream at Gelateria La Kala - I suggest you . "brioche con gelato" with fruits flavors. At Garden Garibaldi, in front of the bigger tree in Europe stands the wonderful palace of Inquisitions: Palazzo Steri. Behind the square, visit the museum Abatellis; inside the most beautiful female portrait of the world: The Annunciation by Antonello da Messina, I think is more intriguing and misterious than Gioconda at the Louvre . Sorry, owfull the lights :-((

Two other museum: Palazzo Branciforti in via Bara all'Olivella ( very interesting and very nice to take a stop at the bar inside) , and with a reduction the museum of modern art ( too many Sicilian painters). In the same area don't miss the wonderful Palazzo Mirto, a private residence until 1980.Fabolous.

And finally if I didn't suggested a visit to the catacombs in Rome, I recommend you to do in Palermo.... At the Cappuccini Convent ( Piazza Cappuccini) you will find an exciting parade of mummified corpses, dressed and hung along your path.

Eat all the sweets and deli that offers the city wherever and however, just to see the slideshow. The sweet are the most coloured of the world.

For a sweet gift arrive in Piazza Verdi "chez Mamma Andrea."

Finally relax in the luxury and cozy Hammam in the heart of Palermo shopping.

The best time to visit Palermo? Ideal all year round: Palermo in Italy is statistically the warmest city in winter and the cooler in summer, and via Giusti is an ideal starting point to discover Palermo and his surroundings for both: short and long stay.
