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.

Palazzo Conte Federico reviews
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 »
This was one of dozens of stops on our Rick Steves' Sicilian tour. Not only was our tour guide Countess Alwine Federico, she served us vino and other libations in one of the dozens of elegant rooms... 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.
