Palermo Guide

Palermo Ferry Port

The capital city of the island of Sicily, Palermo is found on the north coast and is used as the gateway to mainland Italy. There are a huge number of ferry routes departing the port each day, crossing to regions in Italy or other islands off the Italian coast.

What is there to do in Palermo?

Aristocrats reside in the baroque palaces whilst some streets are still being rebuilt after the second world war – Palermo is the epitome of a paradoxical city. Lying between Europe and Africa, a unique Mediterranean feel embodies the most visited area of Sicily; vintage wine stores are scattered around the quaint, narrow streets whilst the chapels and churches stand proud against the shrinking landscape. The Palazzo dei Normanni e Cappella Palatina, Santa Maria dell’Ammiraglio and Cattedrale di Palermo all exemplify the stunning architecture synonymous with Palermo. What makes the city so unique is the varied history it represents; all of the neighbouring countries and regions have occupied the land at one time. It is possible to enjoy Arabic food whilst looking at Norman towers, though the whole city remains unashamedly Italian. The streets buzz with locals selling authentic clothes and fresh food on the markets, whilst in the quieter regions the smell of some of the world’s best coffee often proves too tempting for most. Quite simply, Sicily is an Italian experience like no other.

How do visitors get around Palermo?

The public tram system is the prominent form of public transport around the city, though there are also taxis readily available.
