PALERMO AND THE SURROUNDING AREA
DISCOVERING ANCIENT PANORMUS
This city, with thousands of years of history, hides the traces of the civilizations that have populated it over the course of history. The Art Nouveau areas, the neoclassical theatres, the sumptuous royal residences and the thousand-year-old heritage of the fascinating Arab Norman culture, protected by UNESCO, are just some of the treasures not to be missed on a visit to the city.
But Palermo is also the taste of a gastronomic tradition as rich as its history.
So a tour of the city cannot be considered complete without tasting some of the specialities of the local cuisine, or visiting its lively historic markets.
If you only have a day to visit Palermo, here are some of the sights not to miss.
