Travel through time to the peak of the Belle Époque in Palermo, where the Florio family’s most distinguished guests would have dined in this original Louis XVI hall.
The Story of Florio
Constructed in 1900 at the height of the Belle Époque, the influential Florio family transformed Villa Igiea from a private palazzo into one of the most luxurious hotels in Sicily. Once considered the most famous retreat in Sicily, Villa Igiea has been a symbol of elegance and hospitality that has seen artists, Hollywood elite, and royalty pass through its doors.
Florio Restaurant’s decadent interiors pay homage to the Belle Époque era’s elegance with a restrained colour scheme and soaring floor-to-ceiling windows, which bathe the space in a soft natural light and reveal magnificent views of the Tyrrhenian Sea recalling the golden age, here the Florio family’s most distinguished guests would have dined in this original Louis XVI hall.
