Either ‘precious’, cosy rooms, or a whole apartment at the ‘piano nobile’, tucked away inside a beautiful, ancient palace, in the most exciting quarter of Palermo’s old town, between Piazza Kalsa and the Vucciria historical market, near the railway Station and the Ancient Harbour, you’d be the guests of Luna Figurelli, a born and bred Palermitana art historian
Our love for hospitality must be some kind of unwritten family tradition… my grandfather, the Prince of Sciara and Castelreale, used to invite travellers to stay in his manor house in Raffadali. My mum hosted groups of teenager friends of my brother Emiliano and I every summer in the little country house we used to rent in Gibilmanna.

Palazzo Lungarini is among the most beautiful buidings in Palermo. It stands out for its superb façade. Yet, if one enters into its courtyard, they might feel as if the time had stopped, and they could even sense the atmosphere of its former glory
The palazzo was built in the 16th c. on top of Medieval remains. Its Baroque façade (18th c.) by Andrea Palma, further reveals precious Cinquecento fragments uncovered by the bombing of the II World War and highlighted by the recent restoration.
