Italy, Sicily (Palermo) – Grand Hotel Wagner
The Hotel is named after the famous german composer Richard Wagner who lived in the namesake street with his family between 1881 and 1882. Already, from the sumptuous shiny marble steps at the entrance, the hotel exudes an aura from another era, where crafted wroughtiron goes splendidly together with the warmth of the timber and with the precious golden decorations. The lighting shines in the halls of the lobbywhich is dominated - among the crafted windows- by the majestic chandelier which was used in the well-known “great ball scene” of “Il Gattopardo”, celebrated movie directed by Luchino Visconti. The interior of the hotel is ornately decorated with old paintings, carpets, rare marbles, columns, hand-made windows and a rare antique fireplace.Next to the Hall is the elegant American Bar, where you can relax sipping one of our barman’s specialities and listening to pleasant music.
