Palazzo Mirto is one of the few old palaces still furnished and gives you a glimpse of how rich aristocratic families lived in Palermo in the 19th century.
We went here on a wet day to avoid the rain and for a change from the churches. We were not disappointed. A former royal palace, unchanged for many years, with much to offer. Many rooms with a story to tell, furniture, decor, and works of art.
You get an idea of how the Italian aristrocrats lived. The furnishings and room decorations are rather frayed but you can get an idea of how it was in the past. Is it worth the pay and go see?

One of the best things we did on this trip to palermo (our 2nd visit). Gives you the opportunity to see what life was like for the very wealthy in this city. Such extravagance and beauty! It's really worth seeing
We were recommended this by the owner of the Bagheria villa where we stayed in one of the 'cottages', as it had been in her family before being given to the State. I'm very pleased she did as it was one of the highlights of our visit to Palermo. This is one of the few palazzi that retains most of... More
