We had a great time in 'Alla Ciambra'. It is a cosy apartment, nicely decorated with an amazing rooftop terrace. We had breakfasts with amazing views. The small streets in the block are authentic, very beautiful, and also very quiet. Rosanna was a helpfull host. She is friendly and relaxed and reacts quickly. She picked us up with her car when we really could not find the way with our car in Monreale and checked a bus schedule for us on the Italian public transport site. Palermo is closeby, and very doable by bus.
The apartment is in the heart of Monreale with nice restaurants and dolceria's on walking distant. You can park your car for free just around the corner. I would recommend to stay in this place if you plan to visit Monreale and Palermo area.
