Palermo is a good starting
point to discover Sicily.
The city is large and very active, but the main monuments and interesting sites
are within easy and pleasant walking distance from our hotel right in the city
is a fascinating town due to the different cultures that settled here over the
centuries, from Romans and Byzantines, Arabs and Normans, to the French and Spanish. The
cultural blend has left amazing monuments like the Palatine Chapel in the Normans Palace, home to some of the most
beautiful mosaics in the world. Palermo
is also the home of many colorful markets, like Vucciria, mainly a food market
but selling many other tempting goods. The origins of these markets date to the
tenth century. And of course, a visit to one of Palermo’s pastry shops is a must!
