A city holding a particular fascination

Sicily’s capital city – you may love it or hate it: The metropolis embraces it all, the dubiousness and misery as well as the colorfulness and variety of the island.

Nevertheless, you should not miss out on visiting this 'contradictory', fascinating city.

It has finally shaken the paralysis which it had been gripped by for decades.

The oppressive yoke of the Mafia has been largely thrown off; instead, works of renovation and restoration are in progress everywhere.

A lot of new bars and restaurants open up; run-down districts are rehabilitated or turned into cultural sites.

Nowadays, not only connoisseurs of art, but also those who love to enjoy themselves and gourmets get their money’s worth.

Exploring Palermo on foot is the best way of getting to know it.

The central landmark in the city center is Quattro Canti (or Piazza Vigliena), at the crossing of Via Maqueda with Via Vittorio Emanuele.  

Must-sees are surely the Norman Palace (Palazzo dei Normanni), which houses magnificent Capella Palatina, and the cathedral.

Visits to the churches of La Matorana, San Cataldo and San Giovanni degli Eremiti are also worthwhile.

From among the museums, you might choose Museo Archeologico or Galleria Regionale di Sicilia.

In the immediate vicinity, the Norman Cathedral of Monreale with its world famous mosaics is worth a visit.
