The Splendid Hotel La Torre is located in Palermo, in that part of town known as Mondello: a place somewhere between an unlikely but authentic fishing village, and the charm of one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean, still permeated by the myths of the "belle -epoque ". However, Mondello is just a few minutes by bus from the city center 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 "Falcone and Borsellino". Ideally situated so for those who want at the same time to enjoy a relaxing stay, and visit in comfort, the center of Palermo and its extraordinary monuments. Besides the great semicircle of the beach and a few meters beyond the fishing village is the small rocky promontory, which houses the complex of the "Tower." The hotel occupies the smaller portion of the promontory, the one facing the bay; the other side however, and up to the limit of the marine reserve "Capo Gallo", lies the park of the complex. This from June to September, this particularly noted Sicilian swimming area is open to the public.
