This is a Palazzo that was lived in by the Princes of Mirto four several hundred years. It varies in terms of preservation and some of it is threadbare and tatty. The most interesting thing about it though is that it is a real window on the luxury and splendor of the living conditions of past generations of wealthy Sicilian... More

We spent about an hour touring the two story palazzo. Description pages were provided in English - but there was no overview of the family included. It wasn't until we were nearly through with the tour that we ran across a description in an upstairs room that gave a very short overview. Staff follows you everywhere, which I guess is... More

We enjoyed the food and the place is nice. It was a pleasant meal. Unfortunately it is closed on Sundays and it was not crowded during the week. The exterior signage is not easy to read and you need to know where it is located to find it.

Palazzo Mirto is one of the few in the city open to the public and it’s definitely worth a visit. We arrived soon after the relatively early opening and there were only two other visitors, resulting in a very relaxed walk-around. The interior is magnificent, in the original style and with many decorative artefacts. The main staircase is imposing. Fine... More

We were really looking forward to our visit to Palazzo Mirto. It was a big disappointment. To begin with, the staff is extraordinarily disconnected, unhelpful, uncaring, unfriendly and they appeared utterly bored. One was yelling at someone on a telephone through several rooms and another was entertaining a friend. We were "stalked" from room to room by the staff as... More

In 1982 Donna Maria Concetta pulled shut the front door, walked out, and then donated the 21 room mansion to the State. As I toured the house, the only visitor, I was shadowed every step of the way. -- No sneaky photos here! Also no lifts - only some very sharp spiral stairs. I had checked out, "Palazzo Mirto," on...

This Palazzo was occupied by a noble family until relatively recently. It is hard to resist its oddball charm. Many surprises along the way including an excellent clock collection (non working unfortunately). A worth the effort of discovering its location

Wasn't terribly impressed with this. Thought it was going to look like a home as I'd understood all furniture etc was original, but it didn't really. Couldn't make any sense of how people lived in it as a home and more info on the family would have been good as although there were some family photos about, we didn't know... More

We really enjoyed this house with a varied collection of paintings, furniture and decor. Needs some restoration in places with water damage, not enough info in english, needs an audiotour.

This Villa will take you right into the time of the "Loepard", the last of the golden era of grand Palermo. The Villa is intact and furnished with many interesting details. The curators and are extremely helpful and happy to share some secrets.
