“The Royal Palace of Palermo (11th-12th centuries) is the main monument to represent the wealth and political and cultural power of the Norman kingdom, a model of Arab-Norman architecture. An ancient Islamic Castrum erected on pre-existing Punic origins, from 1072 it became the residence of the Norman sovereigns. Its Torre Pisana (second quarter of the 12th century) is a unique example of a fortified tower, similar to those of the Norman donjon, whose plan is similar to ifriqeni Islamic models. La Joharia (mid-12th century) includes Sala dei Venti and Sala di Ruggero. The Sala dei Venti, or of the four columns, derives its architecture from the durqa'a, the inner courtyard of the Islamic ifriqeni and Fatimid palaces. It is preserved intact and is in fact one of the best preserved examples of this architectural typology in the medieval Mediterranean. Sala di Ruggero is characterized by impressive mosaics that cover the walls and the cross vault with profane, hunting and paradisiac scenes. The mosaics of Stanza di Ruggero, together with the fragments preserved in the Pisan Tower and the mosaic panel of Sala della Fontana in Palazzo della Zisa, are rare examples of profane decorations, distinguished by the significant presence of figurative elements derived from Islamic and Sassanid culture.. A widespread genre in the Byzantine courtly world of which today there are no traces except in historical sources.”

Ski Lodge
“Paid excursions to the top of the Etna start from the Rifugio Sapienza . Consider about 4h for the excursion only. You can also walk along the scenic path Sentiero Schiena dell'Asino. At the end, you can admire the Valle del Bove from a vantage point. The Monte Zoccolaro nearby provides a free hiking on a little challenging slope, but doable with decent shoes. There are not many people around, usually. ”

“Best place on the island to see the sunset! It has a large infinity pool that looks out across the sea. As the sun goes down the lights reflect off the sea and pool creating a beautifully dramatic effect! A must for that perfect holiday photo! It boasts an array of great restaurants, great music and bars. Thursdays are sushi and Jazz nights one of my favorites. ”
