Nice to see but nothing really ashtonishing except perhaps the chinese room. The other saloons and rooms are average compared to many others I have seen.

The Palazzo Mirto is a stunning example of an intact collection in its original context. The house is laid out over a few floors and each room is laden with treasures! The stables and kitchen on the ground floor are like walking back in time. The elegance and grandeur of the rooms is very impressive. The palazzo was quiet at... More

We got caught in the rain, on the way back to our apartment on the next street over, so thought we would nip inside and take a peek. Palazzo Mirto is incredibly ostentatious, decadent, over the top and absolutely glorious all at once. The oldest part of the palace dates back to 13th century, with reconstruction taking place over the... More

This palazzo is not popular with tourists: I had the place to myself on a Friday afternoon (lunchtime I will concede). It's a strange illustration to what happens to interiors and works of art when keeping the windows open to the elements and not looking after the roof for rain damage... The succession of rooms is poorly lit, and the... More

An astonishing glimpse into how the wildly wealthy of Palermo once lived. Gorgeously appointed, every room is filled with priceless treasures and trinkets--a family's belongings in a whole other time. Like most of the other sites we visited, we had the place to ourselves. Loved it.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Palazzo Mirto as previous reviews had led me to believe it had become rundown. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the Kalsa area.

Again very little advertised and unless you know about it and where it is you will never go there. A palace untouched by time, enriched over centuries and arrived to today time intact. Full of the glory of decorations, objects and furnitures from 16th to 19th centuries. Very cheap visit worth a try

This palazzo was the Palermo base of a noble family for four centuries. The last resident departed in 1983 and left the palazzo and all of its furnishings to the state. It is special to see a grand house with original furnishings. The fabric covered walls are especially grand. Docents in the palazzo were able to answer questions and seemed... More
