Palermo- How many days

by Ineedtogo

This summer, I living in Ragusa. Of course, I will go to Palermo. How many days should I stay in Palermo? Also, give me some tips on what to do! Thanks! Grazie!

Re: Palermo- How many days

by TheWanderingCamel

Check out some of the pages on Palermo written by VT members

http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Italy/Sicilia/Palermo-146743/TravelGuide-Palermo.html

You'll find heaps of suggestions of things to do, places to eat and stay, nightlife, etc.

How long you stay is really up to what you want to do there and whether you are talking about just Palermo or whether you want to explore the surrounding countryside. 2 days would be enough if all you want is a fairly cursory look around the city's major sights, including the Cathedral at Monreale (10km from Palermo)which is a must-see. If you want to see more and really explore that corner of Sicily, you could take much longer. Check out some of those pages and see what really appeals. The Greek temple and theatre at Segesta are a fantastic sight but will take you most of a day to get there and back if you're using public transport.

Travel Tips for Palermo

Street food

by matemix

Fried food shops, itinerant sellers with hand-carts or bike-carts or Ape Piaggio cars, simple stalls on the sidewalk, the street food is a matter involving nearly everyone in Palermo. And you can find delicious things as "pani chi panelle" (a kind of sandwich with chick-peas croquettes inside, about 1 Euro each), or "sfinciuni" (a kind of pizza with anchovies, tomatoes, onions, pecorino cheese, ripped bread, origan and other things according to the fantasy of the maker, always 1 Euro a piece), or various kind of sausages, fried meat and kind of kebab. I liked it, my daughter too. An we liked and felt at ease with the incredible variety of people wandering around this Palermo's institution!

One of the best restaurants in...

by marktbike

One of the best restaurants in Sicily is IL MULINAZZO in Villafrati, some 20 km from Palermo, on the national road to Agrigento. It's the only restaurant in Sicily awarded with one star on the Michelin guide. Enjoy the proposal made by Nino Graziano, the chef. Surprising cross between regional cuisine and international variations.

Massimo Theatre

by SeaBreezeUSA

The huge and famous Massimo Theatre, one of the most capacious and famous opera house in Italy, was built at the end of the 19th century by the architecs Gian Battista and Ernesto Basile. It is a building of neo-classical inspiration.

Many notable baroque buildings were brought down to create a wide place and actually it occupies a surface area of 7730 square metres

sicilia bella

by domenicococozza

"looking a little frayed at the edges"

Palermo itself is probably not the best place to stay for a vacation. For tourists, it can be a little intimidating. There is some beautiful baroque architecture, but just as much modern concrete(thanks to a certain body of men who live there). There are still bombed out buildings from the last world war.
Several huge daily flea markets but watch out for pickpockets. They can sniff out a tourist from great distances.
Sicily is absolutely beautiful, but like most capital cities, Palermo has its problems.
