Spots to Work in Palermo and Surroundings: My Top 3

by | 21/09/16 | Europe, Italy, Travel & Work, Traveling | 2 comments

My favorite spots to work in Palermo…. It wasn’t too difficult to figure out which ones to write about. In the last weeks that I’ve spent in Palermo and surroundings, I got most of my work in those three places done. The Coworking Space was my favorite spot, because WIFI is simply the best in the city, the location is perfect and the people there are amazing. I loved going to the Roof Top as well though and always called it my “happy place”. The beautiful view over Palermo made me smile every day again and again. The third spot where I spent a lot of time in front of my computer was the beach bar Ombelico del Mondo. Although the WIFI wasn’t working all the time, the view made me come back as often as possible.

#1 PMO Coworking

PMO Coworking is – surprise! – a Coworking Space. It’s located directly round the corner of one of the two opera houses, the Politeama. The location is ideal… There are bus stops two minutes from the Space, which is in the middle of a pedestrian zone with many restaurants and cafés.

The Space has fast and stable WIFI (for Palermo…), a comfortable lounge area and a meeting room in case you need some more privacy for example to do a Skype call.

#2 Hotel Ambasciatori

The Hotel Ambasciatori is a 4-Star-Hotel in the Via Roma, not even 10 minutes walking distance to the Central Station of Palermo. The bus number 101 is passing by every 5 minutes and stops directly in front of the door. Isn’t that super practical?

On the seventh floor you will find the roof top terrace of the Hotel called SEVEN. They have a Restaurant and a Bar up there. The WIFI is not really the best, but the view is making up for everything. For me this is one of the most inspiring places ever! In this place I wrote for example my Palermo Guide for Digital Nomads.

#3 Beach Bar Ombelico del Mondo

I do admit there are two big disadvanteges of working here :

  1. You can never be sure that WIFI is going to be stable! Some days I was really lucky having super fast and stable WIFI like in Germany. But htere were days as well where I had to stop after a very short time and leave to search for another place.
  2. From the city center you need almost one hour to get there. With the bus number 806 you can go for example from the Politeama for about 40 minutes along the entire Libertà (one of the main streets), over the Favorita (the street connecting Palermo with Mondello) to Mondello.

 

Still it was one of my favorite places to work at, because working at the beach is simply making me happy… And this is something that you can definitely do here!

Which one would be your favorite place? Are you more the Coworking kind of worker or do you prefer Roof Tops or Beach Bars? Tell me about it in the comments!
