Splendid Hotel la Torre, address: Via Piano di Gallo, 11, 90151 Palermo PA, Italy
The Splendid Hotel La Torre is to be found in Mondello, a part of Palermo still wrapped in the myths of the "belle-epoque" and which is located between an unexpected traditional fishing village and one of the most beautiful and fascinating beaches of the Mediterranean. However, Mondello is just a few minutes bus ride away from the city centre on the other side of the wide avenues of Favorita park. On the opposite side, a short stretch of motorway connects Mondello to the city airport of Falcone - Borsellino. It is therefore and ideal place for those who want to enjoy a completely relaxing holiday whilst still being conveniently close to the centre of Palermo and its extraordinary monuments. The " La Torre" complex is situated after the large semi-circular beach, just a few metres on the other side of the fishing village on a little promontory of which the hotel occupies the smaller part, overlooking the bay with its park stretching out in the opposite direction as far as the "Capo Gallo" coastal reserve. The hotel has a private garage watch over video 24 hours a day. foto hotel2Bathing Area: From June to September, this particularly noted Sicilian bathing area is open to the public.
