Palazzo Maria Suites are almost too good to be true. The property dates back to the year 1139, but has obviously been carefully restored with full respect to the original structure. Because of some conservation restrictions, not all apartments have a balcony, but the huge roof terrace overlooking the cathedral solves this as there is so much space to relax, dine and sunbathe if you wish.
Here you are close to everything. In the same building you will find a newly renovated wine bar Enoteca which has a large selection of Sicilian wines and serves interesting Sicilian dishes. The location of these apartments on Piazza Duomo with the magnificent domed cathedral built by the great King Roger 2nd is the most sought after area in the city. Bars, shops, restaurants and the beach are all very close.
