Discover Palermo and surroundings by car
As the capital and cultural centre of Sicily, Palermo is a bustling, lively and thriving cosmopolitan city with a rich history. There are many wonderful things to see and do in this part of the world with top attractions including the Palermo Cathedral which dates back to the 1100s and has a strong Moorish influence. While the Palatine Chapel is a great example of Byzantine architecture, the Royal Palace radiates importance and is a result of when the Normans occupied the island.
Love history? Then the Archaeological Museum won’t disappoint with Greek artefacts being amongst the main highlights. You can also visit the Capuchin Abbey and Catacombs where you can travel underground to witness a macabre array of burial sites from times gone by. While the Abbey itself isn’t one of Palermo’s most-striking buildings, the catacombs contain over 8000 bodies and give a remarkable insight into past traditions and practices.
If you’re in need of some fresh air, why not head for Monte Pellegrino and be at one with nature? Offering remarkable views across Sicily and the Mediterranean, this is the ideal place to stretch your legs with a hike to the top being particularly rewarding.
With a hire car, you can also venture far and wide and explore some of the island’s top beaches. As a summer holiday jewel in the Mediterranean Sea – and the perfect place to catch some winter sun – don’t miss Cefalu Beach to the edge of the ancient city of Cefalu or head to Marinello Beach in Oliveri – one of the most-romantic towns in Sicily. You could even pop across to one of the volcanic Aeolian Islands which are famous for their black sand.
Driving in Palermo
Driving throughout Palermo and other larger cities throughout Sicily is relatively straightforward thanks to the network of well-maintained roads that are also adequately signposted.
One thing to bear in mind, however, is that the driving style can be rather aggressive in Palermo and therefore you should not presume drivers will give way at roundabouts or let you out at a junction. For this reason, stay alert at all times and drive with extra care.
Parking in Palermo can be rather challenging. There are often demonstrations on the main streets and as many of the most popular attractions are nestled close together, it can be difficult to find a parking spot nearby. So, why not park on the outskirts of the city and walk into the centre?
