Not more than 30 minutes away from Palermo International Airport, and 90 minutes from another exquisite Rocco Forte property – Verdura Resort – Villa Igiea is perfectly placed for exploring the region's many highlights. The 12th-century Palermo Cathedral contains royal tombs, while the neoclassical Teatro Massimo is renowned for hosting live opera performances. You're at the edge of this historic city, with the bright blue sea stretching endlessly alongside. As the sun sets each evening, broad boulevards set against a backdrop of rolling hills come alive with sparkling lights – perfect for an evening stroll. Days are spent reclining by the pool, or playing tennis on the hotel's spacious courts. Take a boat trip around the island, returning to the hotel to dine al fresco on the terrace; a light lunch from a menu curated by Fulvio Pierangelini, and paired with fine Italian wines. Accommodation ranges from the classically elegant Superior Room to the spectacular Presidential Suite, all with marble bathrooms, some with private terraces and coveted sea views.
