Most visitors to Palermo fall in love with the city. It has a stunning location on the west of Sicily, with access to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, and enjoys warm weather almost year-round. 

As with most of Italy, the city has a host of museums and galleries and spectacular churches, with architecture that dates back many centuries and has influences from Roman, Arab and Greek civilisations. And many tourists book flights to Palermo for the cuisine. The food here is exquisite: all local produce that grows on the island’s hills or is caught in the sea.

The city is also very busy with tourists at Easter and school children March through May.

Off season:

Autumn to early spring is considered the low season with cooler temperatures, more rain, fewer crowds, and unhurried enjoyment of the sights. This is the time to find a discounted flight to Palermo.

Getting around Palermo

The best way to see Palermo’s medieval centre is on foot. All the sights are close enough that you won’t need more than your own two feet. The rest of the city is another story, and you’ll need to travel via bus or taxi. Buy bus tickets at tobacco shops before you board, and the bus will take you anywhere you need to go, including as far out as Monreale or Mondello. Trips made within a set time period cost a flat fare, or you can buy an all-day pass. For major sights and attractions, you may want to take the Giro Citta tourist bus. The bus travels in a loop, so you’ll get on and get off at Teatro Politeama. Buy your tickets on board. Buses are very convenient, but they can be slow. For a faster trip, call for a taxi or pick one up at a stand. You can also rent a taxi for an entire day.
