Trips to Palermo

Palermo travel

Palermo in Sicily is defined by its history of being passed from one power to another, including the Greeks and Phoenicians, Arabs, Normans and Spanish. It boasts an extraordinarily full collection of Byzantine, Arab, Renaissance and Baroque-influenced architectural treasures, from imposing Norman churches to gleaming golden mosques. But even these grandiose properties seem to modestly blend into the background amid the flurry of daily city life. In the old city, the chaotic web of streets - reminiscent of north African souks - burst with life and are presided over by the crumbling edifices of medieval buildings and Byzantine mosaics. From bustling street markets to archaeological gems, there is plenty for visitors to see and do on a trip to Palermo. Check out our offers flight + hotel to Palermo!

Things to do and places to see in Palermo

The central area of Palermo lies across the famous cross-roads of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via Maqueda (known as the four corners, or Quattro Canti district) which unites the four neighbourhoods, the Albergheria, Il Capo, Vucciria and La Kalsa. The harbour is in the Vucciria area and the Albergheria is the oldest neighbourhood in Palermo, founded by the Phoenicians. Il Capo is full of souk-like markets and La Kalsa is the area to go to for eclectic food.

When visiting Palermo, be sure to:

  • Visit the Cathedral; its architectural style is a symbol of the city's past
  • Marvel at the stunning golden Byzantine mosaics in the Palazzo dei Normanni
  • Bask in the splendour of the church of Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio
  • Savour a rich and creamy ice cream from a gelateria
  • Watch a puppet show, a longstanding tradition in Sicily
  • Visit the macabre Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo
  • Shop for local food, souvenirs and bargains in the markets of Vucciria, Ballaro and Il Capo
  • Admire yet more incredible golden mosaics in the Cappella Palatina
  • Try arancini, delicious fried risotto balls coated in breadcrumbs and filled with ragu (meat and tomato sauce, mozzarella and peas)
  • See an opera at the neoclassical Teatro Massimo
  • Enjoy a sundowner at one of the terrace-bars on Piazza Verdi
