Discover history, grandeur and serenity at Villa Igiea: a turn-of-the-century palazzo on the edge of lively Palermo, at the foot of Monte Pellegrino and the Gulf of Palermo.

Villa Igiea has long been a favorite retreat for royalty, dignitaries and Hollywood stars, who make their way through the villa’s tiered gardens that stretch down to the harbor and the Tyrrhenian Sea on trips to Palermo’s bustling markets, baroque palaces and ancient sites, or on boat trips along the picturesque coastline to visit the Italian restaurants, atmospheric bars and palatial Art Nouveau interiors of Villa Igiea, which has been revived as the Rocco Forte Hotel.
