Palermo is a city of theatres with a rich and varied offering of shows to choose from. The presence of historic theatres, like the Teatro Massimo, Politeama and Biondo, as well as theatres that opened more recently, like the Nuovo Montevergini and Teatro delle Balate, born from the restoration of old buildings in the historic city centre, make Palermo a true theatre-lover’s paradise.

Hotel Columbia is strategically located to experience the city’s theatre life in the best of ways. With its opera season rich with international guests and high-quality productions, the Teatro Massimo can easily be reached by foot, as can the Teatro Biondo, a landmark in Italy for those who love drama.

The Nuovo Montevergini should certainly be included among the newest theatres in the cityscape. It is a theatre that resulted from the restoration of an old 17th century Baroque church, and every year this space hosts the prestigious Palermo Teatro Festival (Palermo Theatre Festival), with the best names in Italian theatre. You can also enjoy rock and jazz concerts performed by well-known national and international artists who choose this space thanks to its extraordinary acoustics.

In the heart of the historic city centre, in the Ballarò area, across from the Chiesa di Santissima Annunziata delle Balate, there is also the Teatro delle Balate, a charming experimental space that hosts drama, dance and music performances, as well as painting and photography exhibits.

Thanks to its central location in the heart of the oldest and liveliest part of Palermo, Hotel Columbia is the perfect choice for discovering the best the city has to offer in terms of culture and nightlife.
