Good area for dining
May 2021
This is a great neighborhood near the harbor and Giardino Garabaldi. Lots of restaurants and bars, and interesting shopping on some of the side street.

The area was very lively after 9:00 pm with packed bars and people enjoying themselves outdoors.

Piazza Mararina. VILLA ROMANA
Sep 2019 • Couples
We visited this Roman Hunting Lodge 30 years ago when it was they were still unearthing it. We returned again with our family and cousins who live there in Sicily. They turned it into a wonderful attraction worthy of historic proportions. The castle depicted life as it was in Roman times The excellent mosaics demonstrated life at the castle with descriptions of activities during that time including mosaics of Romans capturing animals from Africa (Tunisia) and bringing them to this hunting lodge. The mosaics depicted the style and dress of the day. GREAT EXPERIENCE ! MUST SEE !!!

Historic square
Oct 2019 • Couples
This piazza is down toward the waterfront and is a busy active working place. However the smell is overwhelming and wouldn’t make stopping for a coffee a good idea ! It has an excellent information sign with the history of the square and how it was once the waterfront which could explain the smell.

Very Pleasant Stay at Piazza Marina
Sep 2019 • Friends
Our stay at Piazza Marina was very pleasant. The owners were very accommodating. They waited for us the morning we arrived even though we came late. They told us about different places in and near Palermo that we should visit. When we asked them about the Sunday mass in English, they called to get us this information so we did not have to call. They hold the luggage for us after we checked out since our train did not leave until later in the day. The room is clean, breakfast is good and the location is very convenient. There is a supermarket next to the BB, which is very handy. We strongly recommended Piazza Marina.

Gigantic
Sep 2019 • Friends
The piazza is well kept as well as the garden and trees that are incredibly big and old and also particular. The main attraction here in fact are the trees which fill nearly alle the piazza.

Lovely square and gardens
Sep 2018 • Couples
Visited the square in the Kalsa area of the city on a Sunday. In the centre of the square is the Garibaldi Garden, a park where you will find two huge Ficus magnolioides one of which is apparently the biggest of its kind in Europe. The garden is surrounded by iron railings and all around it there was a flea market selling all sorts of items, big and small which was interesting to browse. Large old palazzi surround the gardens and there are several cafes and restaurants nearby. A nice place to wander.

Nice square and little flea market
Nov 2018
All very nice, we went on a sunday and there was a flea market. A bit more than a boot sale - but not a lot more.

Beautiful
Sep 2018
Lovely park in the historic district. It has wonderful walking paths, and a giant ficus tree in the center. Very peaceful now, but in the past the area was used for hangings during the inquisition.
