A trip to Palermo: the Sicilian capital Why Palermo?
Goethe said: “Whoever has seen the sky of Palermo once will never forget it …” and it is true. Palermo, its sky and three Norman Arab sites have been considered UNESCO World Heritage Sites. If you are a lover of art and history, you cannot miss the magic of this city.
Palermo, named capital of culture in 2018, has restored value to its precious historic center, thanks also to the closure to traffic: it is immediately invaded by an explosion of vitality for young people of all ages: live music, theater performances and in the squares, open-air cinema and artistic itineraries to discover ancient treasures are only part of the many activities that you will find in Palermo.
A trip to Palermo is a precious experience, capable of enriching you culturally and morally. The city, in recent years, attracts more and more young people, is a lively city, cheerful and full of cultural activities. We have not yet talked about gastronomy; Palermo is famous all over the world for its street food and its historical markets that with their specialties crowd the streets of the historic center, always giving an explosion of taste in one bite.
Palermo Airport is located just 30 km away from the city, renting a car is certainly the best and fastest way to move independently. It is useful to know that there is a limited traffic area within the historic center of the city of Palermo.
