This room owes its name to the Patron of the district known as Castellammare, due to the presence of the Castello a Mare, the most important defensive bulwark in the port of Palermo up until the XX century. It’s here in this area that you find La Cala, an arch of sea corresponding to the city’s ancient port and today a tourist port within the old town centre.
The sea, fishing and marine hamlets are the themes of this room. Oliva is perfect for the traveller whose main intent is to finally, simply relax. Its deeply intense azure is for those who want to dive into the silent depths of the sea in the belief that summer is not over yet, even when it has already departed.
One more reason for choosing Oliva: its spaciousness and flexibility to separate the beds.
Suggested itinerary: a stroll along the sea front through the evocative park of Foro Italico and up along the Mura delle Cattive (a walk along the top of the city walls), originally a place for a widow’s solitary walk. You should then walk as far as the small beach at Porticciolo Sant’Erasmo to find yourself, back again, by the sea to enjoy a breath taking panorama out over the entire gulf of Palermo. At sunset the view of the grass encircled by palm trees is particularly suggestive and even romantic for those who decide to stop off by the Nautoscopio to admire the liners sailing out of the harbour.
The itineraries can be taken in the company of a qualified tourist guide.
