Backpackers stay at hostels because they know that they will get more than just travel accommodation. They get a cross-cultural, social experiment. They get to be a part of a project that is passionate about traveling. And sometimes, they get more than they asked for. They get, as hostel “A Casa di Amici” puts it: “an experience.”
Palermo – artistic and exotic landscape diversity
Artists have long been retreating to Sicily, Italy’s largest island of the Mediterranean Sea, for a cultural awakening. Rich in history, architecture, art, gastronomy, and an exotic landscape diversity, the island is a wonder to rove. Located on the northwest coast, Palermo is the island’s heart and capital city, and offers over 2,700 years of tradition to be told. Palermo is also where A Casa di Amici makes its home.
A Casa di Amici – the feel-good hostel
A Casa di Amici is a feel-good hostel, a small home with open common areas, open minds, and bohemian spaces furnished as a contemporary art museum. All of the hostel’s self-created décor is music and painting-related.
And that’s where the magic is: the music. A Casa di Amici is the middle road where vagabonds and musicians meet. For guests also have the option to participate in music workshops and lessons, likewise, the academy’s pupils have the option to stay at the hostel. All of these sessions take place on instruments the instructor made himself, complete with the love and patience of someone who is truly passionate about his work.
A Casa di Amici represents a handful of hostels that are working to transform the traditional roles of travel accommodation. They are a hostel that wants accommodation to take an active part in the backpacking journey. For the fusion of travelers and music through the beat of a song that has no dominant language, that transcends and harmonizes all of the cultures of the world, is just one way in which A Casa di Amici in Palermo makes sure that backpackers will leave with more than just the sound of a good night’s sleep. They will leave with an experience.
Enjoy Palermo, enjoy A Casa di Amici!
