Useful info

Hotels

In the map below you will find some hotels suggested for your stay in Palermo (click on the button in the top left corner to open the legend). These are all located in the city centre, and close to the FoS Conference venue Villa Malfitano (15 to 20 min walk). If you wish to reserve at one of this properties you have to contact them (see the map for more info) and mention “FoS Socotra conference”: a special rate will be applied.

Palermo is quite busy during the last week of September because of a big event happening in parallel to Socotra in Sicilia: “Sherbet” is the International ice cream fair that every year attracts people from all over the world. We therefore suggest to book your room well in advance.
