Palermo's a really interesting city, lots to see and do. Are you just there for the weekend?

The Kursaal Kalhesa is a popular and fashionable restaurant/bar/live music venue situated on two levels within the structure of the city walls - it's not very obvious but is near the Grecian Gate at 21 Foro Italico Umberto I.

There are some beautiful churches - La Mantorana has fabulous early mosaics and right next door Santa Caltado is an intriguing mix of Muslim and Christian architecture.

Great markets - Mercato di Ballarò is my favourite

Do make the trip out to Monreale - the cathedral is spectacular

If you're interested in Sicily's mix of Muslim and Christian influence, the palace of La Zisa is worth seeking out.

The Palatine Chapel at the Palazzo Relae is a must - if it's open - take a look at this YouTube for an idea

Palermo's still not the safest city to go wandering around in - especially at night. Use your common sense, keep away from deserted streets, watch your bag and your pockets.

More details of these and other Palermo sights, city quarters, etc on

Have a great time - I'm envious!

Travel Tips for Palermo

Lutto (Mourning)

by hquittner

We heard about the tragic ambush and killing of Italian soldiers enroute to Cefalu the day before, and as we approached the WWest face of the Porta Nuova across from the Piazza Indipendenzia we became aware of this sight in front of the military buildings situated there. This was a continuation to the Memorial Service in Cefalu the day before. Grief for unexpected death is universal.

Segesta

by pecsihornet

Segesta was one of the major cities of the Elymian people, one of the three indigenous peoples of Sicily. The population of Segesta were mixed Elymian and Greek Ionic. The Elymian people in Segesta were soon hellenized, taking up the greek way of life.
Segesta was in eternal conflict with Selinunte. In 415 BCE Segesta asked Athens for help against Selinunte, leading to a disastrous athenian expedition in Sicily (415-413 BCE). Later they asked Carthago for help, leading to the total destruction of the city of Selinunte by the hands of Carthago. Segesta remained an ally of Carthago, it was besieged by Dionysos of Syracuse in 397 BCE, and it was destroyed by Agatocles in 307 BCE.
The ruins of the city is located on the top of Monte Bàrbaro at 305m above the sea. From the hill top there is a splendid view over the valley towards the Gulf of Castellamare.
The city is most famous for its greek theatre which is within the city limit, and for the marvellous doric temple just outsite the perimeter.

Great beaches!

by Nicky-IRE

Travelled out of Palermo to visit this fabulous beach. It's covered with little huts/houses which people either own or rent and they keep all their things in there (such as tables, deck chairs, etc), which takes up much of the beach. However, the sea is turquoise and surrounded by mountains, it's really beautiful.

"The Catacombas"

This place really freaked me out. It's below the ground and contains the mumified bodies of hundreds of men, women, and children. Some of them are really well preserved, but it's all a bit much for me and my stomach!
