Palermo

Palermo

Hectic, colourful and extremely charismatic, Palermo is an excellent introduction to Sicily. While a sense of faded grandeur, crumbling aristocratic palazzi and the atmospheric Ballarò and Vucciria markets are all part of the city’s appeal, opera has been restored to its former glory at the magnificent Teatro Massimo and contemporary art galleries are fast gaining recognition on the international art scene.

With almost everything within walking distance in Palermo, renting a car is unnecessary. Hop on a bus to visit the extraordinary Norman Cathedral in Monreale or to spend the day soaking up the rays on the Palermitans’ favourite beach at Mondello. Take an excursion to Segesta, one of the best preserved Greek archaeological sites in the Mediterranean, with a visit to the vineyards around Alcamo.
