Sicily’s capital city is a chaotic slightly unpredictable place with several cultural and social influences. Placed perfectly in the heart of the old city, you’re at the ideal jumping off point to explore and are just a few minutes walk from either side of Piazza San Domenico and the city’s main street, Via Roma. A fascinating mix of Roman, Arabian, Baroque and Norman influences, the city is a melting pot of style and culture. The Vucciria, Ballarò and del Capo street markets are a must, as is the harbor and Foro Italico waterfront with it’s glittering yachts. Lined with small beaches in along the Gulf of Mondello, the coastline also includes some of the best on the island including Mondello which is the largest and closest to the city center. Don’t miss Cefalu, Isola delle Femmine, San Vito Lo Capo, Aspra and Arenella about an hour away from Palermo’s city center. Parking is limited and very restrictive in the old town but you’ll want to take your time and stroll.
