Fodor's Expert Review La Dimora del Genio

Via Garibaldi 58, Palermo, Sicily, 90133, Italy

Stepping into this charming apartment off Piazza della Rivoluzione is like entering a different time zone: a taste of Old Palermo where the elegant furnishings evoke a romantic world you might think only exists today in novels. Crystal chandeliers, rococo mirrors, painted and coffered ceilings, oriental rugs on parquet or majolica floors, and doilies on polished oak tables all create a warm ambience you'll find difficult to leave. It's not all Old World—the owners have stamped their own taste on the decor by adding works of 20th-century art. It's in a lively neighborhood, with plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity.
