PALERMO – THE CITY WITH THE WORLD’S MOST FASCINATING PROMONTORY

Palermo, the capital of Sicily’s region, as well as the Province of Palermo, is considered to be one of the most spectacular cities of not only Italy, but of entire Europe, and is famous for its ages and ages of history, architecture, art and culture, and last but not the least, gastronomy. The city, with its 2700 year old history and tradition, has played an extremely pivotal role in the European Renaissance.

When it comes to describing Palermo, the first and foremost aspect that comes in the mind is the mantle of uncertainty and unpredictability that the city remains wrapped with. More importantly, there is always a tinge adventure that is associated with the city and its ambience.

For a tourist, the beauty of Palermo is something totally different from the other Italian cities. With plentiful of dusty, old museums, domes of buildings with prominent Arabic architectural influence, with age old splendor, rich is flamboyance, jostling with the boisterous shops and market places, chaotic and often unruly traffic, and oppressive Mediterranean heat testing your patience and perseverance, Palermo is a noisy and dusty, but at the same time, an overtly fascinating city.

Some of the most important places of tourist interest in Palermo are Martorana, Palazzo dei Normanni, Catacombe dei Cappuccini, Cappella Palatina, Teatro Massimo, Zisa, Mount Pellegrino, Quattro Canti, Palermo Cathedral, and obviously, the Mondello beach.

Other famous churches in Palermo include San Giovanni dei Lebbrosi, San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio or St Mary of Admiral, also called Chiesa della Martorana, San Cataldo, Santa Caterina, Santa Maria dello Spasimo, San Francesco di Assisi, and the likes.

Important museums and palaces in Palermo include Palazzo dei Normanni, Natoli Palace, Palazzo Chiaramonte, Palazzo Abatellis, Antonio Salinas Regional Archeological Museum.

The city is also home to some extremely famous opera houses. The most notable amongst them are Teatro Massimo, or the Greatest Theatre, and Teatro Politeama.

The city is extremely well connected with mainland Italy and the rest of Europe by air, roads and rails and even by water ways. While Palermo International Airport connects the city with the rest of the world by air, Palermo is connected by ferry service from Salerno, Civitavecchia, Genoa, Livorno, Naples, Livorno, Malta (Valletta), Cagliari (Sardinia), Malta (Valletta), and Tunis. The city is connected by train to Naples and Rome.

For the foodies, Palermo is a fantastic place. Some of the finest restaurants, bars, hotels, road side cafes and eateries come up with sumptuous cuisines and wines that will leave the foodies and wine enthusiasts practically drooling!
