Discover An Island With An Attitude

Considered the Italian capital of culture, Palermo is a welcoming city with an international identity. Stroll the local streets, and explore hidden corners to discover the city’s art, culture and folklore. Take in opera at the famous Massimo Theatre. Admire the wonderful mosaics in the Cappella Palatina, or the magnificent gardens and fountains of an Arabian castle — Castello Della Zisa. Don’t miss visiting the Royal Palace — it’s the oldest royal residence in Europe.

A mountainous region, Palermo’s cliffs dive straight into the sea, with pockets of ready-to-be-explored coves and caves. This nature-made playground is perfect for boating, sailing and watersports like windsurfing and kite surfing. If you’re looking to unwind from stress and daily life, Sicily’s renowned thermal spas and wellness centers offer regenerating and therapeutic beauty treatments.

If you’re a gastronomic enthusiast, you’re sure to be tempted by local specialties, such as spicy fish couscous, chickpea fritters, babalucci (marinated baby snails) and a zesty lemon granita drink. Visit Capo Market to taste traditional street food like arancini (rice balls with meat or ham and cheese) or cannoli (crispy cookies stuffed with ricotta).

For nightlife, Palermo establishments take their wine and cocktails to a distinct level; which can be easily enjoyed at any number of intimate tables lining the city’s piazzas. From outdoor concerts with open-air dance floors to high-energy nightclubs, Palermo has something for everyone.
