          Meets its 5 star rating

          Superb hotel worth every one of its 5 stars. The bar staff were rude but all other staff were kind, respectful and helpful. Lovely setting overlooking the marina and the gardens are extensive. The rooms are big enough to get lost in. Best breakfast buffet in all of Sicily. If you have to stay in Palermo, this is the place to be.

          A Magnificent Hotel - Disappointingly Marred by Unhelpful Reception Staff

          This is a magnificent hotel, wonderfully located right on coastline of Palermo. The lovely old building has been beautifully restored and the general decor and furnishings are tasteful and elegant. The outside bars, terraced eating areas and manicured gardens are fabulous. And the buffet breakfast overlooking the marina and bay is nothing less than sensational. Disappointingly, we found the reception staff (as opposed to the very warm and helpful restaurant staff) to be disinterested and almost terse in their behaviour toward the guests. For this reason alone, we can only give the hotel a four star rating - a great shame for such a splendid hotel.

          A great breakfast this morning - the best in all of Italy (except for on the boat). I had waffles with maple syrup and cream - yum, yum. Thank you Villa Igiea. What a terrible shame I don't get a second breakfast here - leaving the hotel at 5.30am tomorrow for my 8.00am flight to Malta (Thanks Renee!).

          This morning we took an excursion to …

          We arrived in Palermo late morning and went straight Monreale, a hill-top town just outside Palermo, to visit the Duomo (Cathedral). Built in 1172, the Duomo is described as the finest Norman building in Sicily and famous for its extensive, magnificent mosaics. According to Gilberto before we arrived, this church has the best mosaics in all of …

          Then there's the food. On this trip I have added several items to the "Best Thing's I've Ever Tasted" list. There was the "Octopus Pie" at Le Macine on Lipary. The pork belly at Capistrano Restaurant in Valletta. The Octopus sauteed with garlic at Sunshine Cafe in Marsaxlokk. The pana cotta at Pulena Restaurant in Marsalforn. The Zuppa Fagioli at Pepe's in Piazza Armerina. The arancini at Panicifico Ragona in Marsala. And the amazing table ...

          We didn't have a set time to start today, and had the morning to explore on our own, so we joined our new friends Sandra and Frank for a walk. We saw the 12th century church, Chiesa di S. Maria, which was originally planned as a mosque, so it contains stunning Byzantine mosaics. Next door there was a much smaller and very simply decorated church, ...

          Our first stop was after winding up a large hill to view the 5th century Temple and Theatre. Next was another set of hairpin bends expertly negotiated by our bus driver, while we enjoyed spectacular views down towards the coastline. The picturesque medieval village of Erice was expertly built at the top. We wandered the cobblestone streets and in one of the piazzas a film crew ...
