About Palermo

Palermo is both the capital and the largest city of the island of Sicily. Built along the island’s northern coast, this city has been one of the region’s most important ports since it was first founded back in the 700s BC. About 1 million tourists come through Palermo each year, drawn in by the pristine weather, the delectable cuisine, and the local attractions. Top spots include the Palermo Cathedral, Palatine Chapel, and the Capuchin Catacombs, which are built beneath an abbey dating back to the 1500s. While Palermo is the main tourist hub of Sicily, its economy has become increasingly diverse in recent years. Construction, finance, and agriculture are just some of the region’s noteworthy industries. As much as you’ll enjoy the city’s charming architecture and fresh, delicious food, it’s the people of Palermo that are its true treasure. There’s a reason it’s often called The Happy City, and it won’t take long until you feel like family. The openness of Sicilians can take some getting used to if you’re accustomed to the anonymity of big city living, but for most it’s one of the best parts of the city.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
