My hair has not been doing the right thing since having it cut in Florence so one of the ladies on the tour named Rosemary offered to do it for me with her hair straightener and it looked so much better.

After a late lunch we headed back to collect the car and queue for the ferry to Naples. We bought ourselves a lovely picnic bread from the bakers, cheese and ham from a specialist shop and fruit and tomatoes from the green grocers; individual shops are still the norm and they do sell lovely food. We ate our picnic on deck as we sailed into the sunset, washed down by local wine before going to sleep early in our comfy cool cabin.
... church, dating from 1172, and as we approached I thought we might have made a mistake because the outside is pretty dull. Inside however it was just beautiful. The whole of the walls were covered with the most marvellous mosaics of biblical scenes.
We are now in a Palermo hotel and will spend a day here tomorrow before catching the ferry tomorrow night to Naples.
... Nice to see chivalry still alive. The parents were in the middle of preparing lunch when we arrived. It was very interesting to see them prepare the meal, especially to see how sardine was cooked, a local delicacy. There were appetisers, prima plati (first plate) of pasta and rice, secondi plati and finished off with cafe.
I felt lucky and privileged to be part of the day-to-day Palermo social life, made my travel all the more special. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ambasciatori Hotel Palermo
Very unprofessional management
We really wanted to stay at the Ambasciatori hotel, however, it wasn't meant to be. Anyone planning to book a room at this hotel, I stronlgy advise you to use the internet booking services. I tried to go through personal contact via email and phoning the manager, since the rates are better if you book directly, but in the end was so annoyed by the unprofessional way my enquiries and attempts at booking were handled that I gave up. My emails weren't answered, confirmation about faxing through a booking form took ages and was only provided after a couple of (again unanswered) emails and then phone calls, the manager was rude on the phone and very impatient. I'm sure it's a nice hotel, but the management leaves a lot to ask for!
Best Hotel I've Had In Europe!
For 78 Euro a night, we got a room with 12ft. celings (easily) a huge bed, huge room, huge bathroom - the entire place looked as if it had been redone the day before we got there. The breakfast on the roof has the best view of Palermo I can even imagine. Fresh flowers abound. Reception was amazingly helpful - 18 Euro tickets to an opera! Everything was clean beyond compare - Our bathroom even had a heated towel rack! The a/c and heating system were fantastic. I would recommend this hotel above all. I would have paid twice what I did.
Well, weve just come back from the Hotel Ambasciatori - on Via Roma - booked on t'internet - beautiful roof terrace for breakfast - walking dist of Central Station and reasonably priced - lovely friendly staff . I cant belive they dont include pics of the views from the roof as its a real selling point . We got the aeroportu - Palermo bus rather than a taxi which cost 5 euros each pay the driver when you board and got off at the last stop - Central Station and walked the 200 metres back to the Hotel at no.111 via Roma .
