Very atmospheric...

Lovely grounds , sadly neglected , villa was closed ....I think it looks like long term closure with sign stating this, shame ! I would love to have seen inside.

The Garden around the villa is lovely. The villa itself is a bit expensive (6 €). It is a collection of art pieces from around the world I think. No explanation was given. you need to ring the bell in order to get in.

Like many places in and around Palermo Villa Malfitano is sadly neglected. If you are passing do enter and walk around as there is no charge. The day we visited the villa was closed, and the grounds were in need for regular maintenance. What was once a grand villa with lovely gardens has been allowed to fall into disrepair.
