We stumbled onto this 18th century "Palace" while walking around the side streets of the old city of Palermo. 6 Euros gets you in for the self guided tour. There are laminated if not a bit worn out English directories to borrow for the walk on each floor. They give a detailed explanation of the items on display, though not... More

The house was not over the top. One could imagine living there. It is great that it is preserved for the Nation.

Very much enjoyed our visit: the paparazzo seems untouched since the last aristocratic family left. The rooms are huge, full of memorabilia, even photos of the family. Lots of Meissen ware also gorgeous furniture. Don't miss the stables, which look like the horses just left (and the stable hands have cleaned up) ,plus lovely old carriages.

Felt we need to view a Palazzo during a short break in Palermo. Modest entrance fee and I think we were the only 2 visitors during the time we took to look around. You follow a self guided tour through the rooms using rather well thumbed printed sheets. We got copies in English but the numbers available were limited.Not sure... More

Hidden away in a side street off Corso Vittorio Emanuelle, this lovely little palazzo has been maintained to perfection. Furniture, glassware, paintings, books, everything that goes into a noble family's home of the time period is shining and presented with an air of making a visitor able to experience the daily life of the time. Six euro entry fee (!),... More

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
