Must see · Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
A Palermo landmark and a supremely luxurious residence, Palazzo Conte Federico provides insight into life as a European aristocrat. The Hohenstaufen-descended count or his multi-talented wife will take you on a tour of their home (also a bed and breakfast), where you can glimpse fine decorations from around the world. Inspect a wealth of interesting artifacts, including antique armchairs, religious frescoes, and suits of armor. If you're lucky, the Countess may even treat you to a performance in the concert hall, where the impressive piano was once used by Wagner.

  • Hands-down the best historical house tour I’ve been on, and I’ve done many! The Palazzo is extraordinarily beautiful and well-maintained. Especially fantastic is the peek of the old painted ceilings.....  more »

  • Extraordinary place in Palermo, hidden between buildings in a buzzing neighborhood. The Federico family makes organized tours a few times a day. They are very friendly and communicative. Surely in top 10 things to visit in Sicily.
  • Accidentally discovered this palazzo and was very pleasantly surprised by the history, architecture and vibe. The tour was beautifully presented. A must see in Palermo.
