La Finestra sul Massimo

Since 1979

Our story begins at Palazzo Butera, in the classroom where we started to daydream about our life and future. We were just teen girls back then, full of dreams, hopes, and a strong will to realize our projects. Unfortunately, as often happens, time and circumstances took us apart and notwithstanding the strong attachment to each other, our lives took two separate paths. However, fate has a weird timing...after more than three decades destiny knocked back on our door under the form of a social media. Thanks to facebook we met again, right when we both were facing a difficult period after having lost our jobs. Suddenly, it was like turning the clock back by the time when we were nothing more than those strong and determined girls who dreamt to realize their own dreams. That's how the idea of the bed and breakfast started to shape in our minds. Supporting and pushing each other to find the courage to make it through, we decided to involve ourselves in the realisation of something that could express our personality and "La Finestra sul Massimo" is exactly as we imagined it, our beautiful reflection.

Our mission is to give an emotion to tourists from all over the world, offering them a pleasant stay in one of the most central location of our wonderful city.

1. New and Ancient
A mixture of old and new. Our bed and breakfast opened in September 2016, in an elegant building of the endings of the XIX century. The beautiful original floor is gracefully mixed with modern furniture carefully choosen to offer our guests the best of comfort and relax during their stay.
2. A stone's throw from the Massimo Theatre
We are located in the heart of Palermo, right in front of Teatro Massimo: the biggest Opera House in Italy and one of the largest of Europe (the third after the Opéra National de Paris and the K. K. Hof-Opernhaus in Vienna), renowned for its perfect acoustic. The amazing and suggestive view on the Theatre from the windows of our cosy rooms will make your stay sensational and quite hard to forget!
3. Maria Grazia e Tiziana
Maria Grazia and Tiziana We run the b&b together, side by side, supporting each other day by day and pushing each other to do our best to satisfy our guests and go back home proud of ourselves and happy. As citizens of Palermo since we were born, we know every hidden treasure of our city and we can help the tourists to find out also worthy places that are not written in their guides! Moreover, we live by this work and we don't ask for anything better than making our guests feel completely at ease with us like if they were at home.
4. Breakfast Palermo.
During your stay at "La Finestra Sul Massimo" you will enjoy your breakfast in the "Butterfly Room", where freshly baked croissants, coffee, tea and a buffet with a good assortment of sweet and salty food will be set up for you. We always choose different kinds of local products to make our guests try some samples of typical sicilian food, because we think that to properly visit Palermo you also have to "taste it".
