To Palermo in March,

We do not live in Palermo. However, we we fortunate to vacation in Sicily a few years ago in March. The weather was fine, Generally lots of sun, temps in the 60's. Take a coat or jacket for the evenings.

Palermo can be a beautiful city- the Cathedral, the Opera House, etc. There are seedy parts of the town near the docks. But we had no trouble. A great city for walking.

Travel Tips for Palermo

Vegetables at Ballaro'

by lichinga

Fresh vegetables and fresh fruits are great. Prices are not anymore the insignificant amounts they were up to just a few years ago, but this is a good sign as it was unfair the producers received so little money for their work.

Shop in Palermo

by extrajoce

Palermo has many small neighbourhoods, and some streets specialise in a certain trade. In this one, not far from the Convent of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, one can find any obejct made from aluminium, such as pizza pans. Quite original!

San Domenico

by toonsarah

The Basilica of San Domenico (St. Dominick), off Via Roma, is an excellent example of Sicilian Baroque, noted particularly for its façade which was completed in 1726. When we were there in November this façade was further ornamented by a lacy metal structure adorned with angels and other Christmas symbols and decorations. It appeared that at night these would all have been illuminated, which must be quite a sight!

The Piazza in front of the church has a large memorial and contains several bars and cafes. To the east runs the Vucciria street market, well worth exploring.

Mondello

by ruki

Mondello is the most popular Palermo beach, famous for its elegant Liberty-style villas, its white sand and its crystal-clear water.
The beach is about 10 km from Palermo. Because of the wind Mondello attract lots of visitors especially windsurfing enthusiasts.

We have cousins in Sicily and I've visited a couple of times over the years.

On my last visit, I arrived at the Palermo airport via Alitalia. The Terminal was fairly small by most standards of American cities, but very nice. The scenery around the airport is spectacular. I can also tell you that the Airport security is very good there as well. My mother was carrying a small knife in her travel case (that she had forgotten she even had), and a Cabineri(sp?) (equiv to our state police) was the only one who noticed it on the xray scan and made her dig it out and questioned her about it - good thing she was fluent in Sicilian dialect. No one else in Cleveland, New York Kennedy or Laguardia, Milano, or Rome spotted it. The scenery around the airport is spectacular - high mountains and cliffs.

I rented a car (from AVIS)in the main terminal. Plan on about an hour to get the paperwork completed and be taxied to the lot (same on return). You can also take a moter coach (bus) into Palermo, for about $10 US equiv. They leave about every 45 minutes during the business hours.

I drove from the Paledrmo Airport to Termini Imerese (in Palermo Province - about 45 miles east of the Airport). On the Autostrada, I was amazed that the road (which was similar to an American freeway), actually went into the business district in the southern portion of Palermo. We actually encounterd a couple of stop lights. But eventually we got back on the Autostrada.
