OVERVIEW

Palermo, the soulful capital of Sicily, offers a unique blend of ancient history, artistic treasures, and culinary delights. Nestled on the edge of the Tyrrhenian Sea, this city is a tapestry of cultures, where Arab domes, Byzantine mosaics, and Norman architecture all come together.


Here's what we think should form the core of your experience:

History & Architecture

The awe-inspiring Palermo Cathedral and the mesmerizing Palatine Chapel narrate a tale of centuries of grandeur, while its streets, adorned with crumbling, ornate baroque facades and hidden courtyards, invite exploration at every turn. The appeal of a large, lush island in the middle of the Mediterranean has proved irresistible to various powers through Sicily’s history, and there are traces here of the Phonecians, Greeks, Cartheginians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Spanish, Piedmontese, and finally the Allies during WWII, all of whom invaded Sicily and spent time around Palermo.

Markets & Cuisine

Palermo's bustling markets, like the vibrant Ballarò and Vucciria, awaken the senses with the aroma of spices, freshly caught seafood, and colorful fruits. This is very much the essence of Sicily: bright, loud, a bit wild, and impossibly beautiful.

People & Lifestyle

Palermo’s warm, passionate locals infuse the city with a contagious energy. Amidst the chaos, Palermo exudes an irresistible charm, drawing travelers into its embrace and leaving them captivated by its timeless allure. It’s not for everyone, but for those tuned in, there’s nothing quite like it in the whole world.
