Books Bed & Breakfast
Cassaro 261 is located in the heart of today's Corso Vittorio Emanuele, inside a completely renovated building with a lift. Corso Vittorio Emanuele is the main road axis of the city of Palermo, whose ancient Arabic name was "al Qasr", Cassaro, from which the B&B takes its name. The vocation of the Bed & Book, already on the logo, and the central location make it the ideal starting point to discover the history of Palermo and of Sicily, through the pages of books and international authors that we have made available to our guests.
The Bed & Book in the heart of Palermo is closely linked to the theme of journey, in particular the journey to Sicily, which contains various experiences, for all travelers-types. Traveling means discovering new worlds, new ways to communicate and learn from other cultures. This is why the rooms of Cassaro 261 B&B are based on three macro thematic areas that can apply to the trip, in particular the trip to Sicily: History, Wine and Food and Slow tourism. These themes are present in our narrative selection for you.
Cassaro 261 Books Bed & Breakfast in Palermo is an accommodation facility with seven rooms, of three different types: 4 Standard Double, 3 Superior Double with Balcony. Comfortable rooms, tastefully furnished between modern and vintage, in the center of Palermo, to experience authentic Sicilian hospitality in a city full of charm.
Many of the rooms have an enviable view, some on Corso Vittorio Emanuele through large windows or balconies that fill the rooms with natural light; others have a view on San Matteo Church, a fine example of Baroque Palermo-style, inside which there are works by Giacomo Serpotta, Vito D'Anna and Pietro Novelli.
Each room has a bibliography on Sicily, its places, its rich culinary history, but not only. The books that you will find in your room and in the common areas refer to the theme of travel tout court, thanks to great authors who have been able to take us around this wonderful island, through their words.
