At Palazzo Rodio we received the visit of Rosalia and Michele, two travel bloggers who together with their inseparable 4-legged friend Otto tour Italy and Europe. Their blog is cittameridiane.it.
CittàMeridiane at Palazzo Rodio
Here we felt the hosts for almost a week, living it fully and with the privilege of being the only guests and to be able to enjoy all the sought-after and welcoming spaces. A testimony of this is the video in which Otto is the protagonist and showing, through his four-legged path, halls and rooms of this large house, the right address to spend a stay in an environment where tradition, comfort and refinement come together with the warm hospitality of the landlords, Teresa and Paolo.
Palazzo Rodio, built in 1852 by the physicist and presbyter Dr. Francesco Greco , represents from the façade where the maxims of Socrates and Plato are engraved, a perfect synthesis between past and present , a place where the story of a family is combined with peace and intimacy. The love and commitment of the Rodio family have magnificently preserved this palace embellished with star vaults, a frescoed salon with a delicate celestial representation, antiques and memories of the owners.

Inside there are large rooms that announce the discreet elegance of the light and airy rooms. All the apartments have been created in such a way as not to alter the original structure of the building and can be connected to each other and therefore adjustable according to the needs of the guests. Each one is equipped with modern comforts and services from the refrigerator to the electric stove, from the oven to the hair dryer, from the TV to the air conditioning, as well as crockery and refined towels and bed linen.
Palazzo Rodio offers solutions ranging from two to sixteen beds and consists of five double bedrooms, a mansard with two single beds, two living rooms with double sofa bed, four kitchens, four bathrooms, large terraces, garden, large rooms and a large central hall.
The whole area of the building, including the harvest and fragrant back garden which can be accessed from the same secondary door leading to the large parking lot, is free Wi-Fi and free access everywhere is also allowed to our four-legged friends. And our Otto has explored every room feeling at home!
Our, Mary Apartment, spacious and comfortable, is furnished with Liberty furniture and has the plus of a bright veranda overlooking the large terrace where during the hot season you can have breakfast or spend time relaxing. Otto enjoyed the opportunity to take turns outdoors and was often stuck in the stone balustrade to peek curiously into the street.
Who do we recommend staying at Palazzo Rodio at Città Meridiane? To all those who like to feel wrapped in a great atmosphere, where everything has the unique taste of a private house open to hospitality. To create this climate also contributes to the fact that the apartments are all equipped with their own kitchen. Many other services that this ancient residence puts at the exclusive disposal of its guests, including the shuttle to and from the airport, horse and carriage rides, guided tours and tastings of typical products and traditional local cuisine.
Do not forget that the strategic location of Palazzo Rodio allows those who choose this place as a holiday home to visit the White City on foot, getting lost in the alleys between a riot of stairs, courtyards and squares overlooked by white houses dotted with colorful geraniums, artisan shops, typical restaurants and shops.
By car and in a few minutes you can reach the coast with its 17 kilometers of sandy beaches, rocks, coves and two public beaches where you can go to the beach with our 4-legged friends.
