We were supposed to spend the last night of our three-week escape to Southern Europe in Palermo on our way back to the US. We had driven all day around Sicily, from Taormina to Messina and around the horn on the coastal highway to Palermo. But worrying about missing a very early flight, and in great pain from a back injury I had sustained, we bypassed the city, searched on TripAdvisor for places to stay near the airport and there we discovered Cinisi's Antichi Colori B&B. We arrived without reservation around 8PM on a Friday evening and were soon greeted by one of the nicest, most beautiful and competent hospitality professionals we've ever had the good fortune to meet--Providenza! Our room was delightful, spacious, comfortable and spotless clean.
Half an hour later, Providenza returned and drove us (pain kept me from driving) to her favorite local restaurant where we dined under the stars and drank luscious Nero d'Avola. An hour and a half later, Providenza picked us up to-I thought-drive us back to the B&B. But, no. Providenza had made it her personal mission to locate a therapist for my back pain, arranged for an appointment at 10:30 PM, drove us there and waited until nearly 100% of the pain had been treated away one hour later. She then got us home by midnight to catch three hours of sleep before setting out for the flight. When we woke to the alarm at 3:30AM, Providenza was there to cook breakfast for us. It took some persuading, but we talked her out of preparing a full menu and just brewing some strong Arabico instead. Cinisi is a great spot to visit when traveling to Sicily--quaint, sufficiently off-the-beaten-path to lack chain stores and the place where Antichi Colori can be found. And where beautiful, thoughtful Providenza can be your hostess. We departed soon after, regretting not knowing about this jewel of a B&B earlier in our trip--we would have gladly stayed and explored longer. Five-star treatment in Cinisi!
