Discover history, majesty and serenity at Villa Igiea: a turn-of-the-century palazzo at the perimeter of vivid Palermo, the foot of Mount Pellegrino and the Gulf of Palermo. A long-loved seaside-meets-city sanctuary for royalty, dignitaries and Hollywood luminaries, trace their paths through tiered villa gardens that sweep down to the port and out to the Tyrrhenian Sea; on excursions to Palermo's bustling markets, Baroque palaces and ancient sites, or yacht trips along its picturesque coast; and through Villa Igiea's Italian restaurants, atmospheric bars and palatial Art Nouveau interior, revitalised as a Rocco Forte hotel.
Villa Igiea sits in a prime location overlooking the beautiful marina. Each suite has been given a contemporary twist by designer Olga Polizzi and is furnished with classic antiques and delicate fabrics. Terraced gardens surround the sparkling pool and at the Igiea Terrazza Bar, the finest aperitivos are served amid charming frescoes.
