The property is in the heart of the historic part of the city , within easy walking distance of all major attractions and amenities . It's location gives guests a real flavor of life in authentic Siciliano city. It is excellently well maintained, with a very warm and welcoming host who is a mine of information both local and further afield. Ignore other reviewers complaints of the surrounding noise, it's a lived in city. Enjoy the experience.
