We did not know what it was. They told us this work was called “Phoenix” and it was “Top Secret”. Here I sometimes had to deliver documents by taxi from the front door of the offices, and take them to various places, they rotated the girls for this task.
All rooms have free (non alcoholic) minibars. Rooms in Palazzo Bongiovanni have limed white beams, marble bathrooms, wrought iron beds and (bravely, but it works) bespoke lino reproducing traditional Sicilian majolica and ceramic floors. Standard doubles in the main palazzo are fairly small (reflecting the original room sizes) but each is distinctly different, and all are well designed, combining contemporary comforts with antique Sicilian chests, wrought iron and painted bedsteads, wardrobes with antique wooden doors, and colourful, hand painted majolica tiles.
