Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Principe di Villafranca

Via G. Turrisi Colonna 4, Palermo, Sicily, 90141, Italy

Modern art mixed with antique furnishings, creamy marble floors, and vaulted ceilings evoke a luxurious private home in a residential area near Palermo's glitzy shopping district. It's easy to get comfortable in the understated surroundings; relax in the library with an aperitif, or savor authentic cuisine in the cozy restaurant. Rooms are simple yet elegant, with fine linens, soothing neutral colors, and more modern art. Some rooms can be noisy, however, so ask for one facing the quieter street side.
