Destination guide

History, culture and fine dining await you at Palermo villas

The capital city of Sicily is Palermo, and whether you're interested in history, culture or gastronomy, you'll find numerous ways to satisfy your holiday desires. The historical sites in town date back to its original founding in the 8th century BCE while its modern areas provide some of the best contemporary cuisine and shopping opportunities you'll ever find. It's a port city, so there are coastal adventures to enjoy as well. Local villas in Sicily can vary quite a bit, but the closer to the coast or historical sites you get, the more luxurious villa rentals typically become.

Things to do

Sights and relics to make you wonder in Palermo

Palermo is a veritable menagerie of history. You'll be staying in a city where everyone from Byzantines to Greeks, Romans to Norman invaders, have raised monuments and statues. There's just a taster of it all in the sprawling Antonio Salinas Regional Archaeological Museum, its cloisters filled with haunting sarcophagi and Punic washbasins. Then come palazzos like the great Zisa, oozing Moorish elements, or the Cuba Palace, dating back to 1180, with its fusion of Arab art in the cupolas. Also, don't forget to point the lens towards the spires of the gorgeous Church of the Gesu, one of the most notable in Sicily.


Discovering all corners of Palermo

Tours, tours and more tours are usually not enough to get to the bottom of this varied island capital. Hungry? How about foodie walks in the bustling street markets? Prepare for boiled octopus, arancini balls and plenty of Catarratto wine. Ready for some sightseeing? Hop-on, hop-off buses run rings around the metropolis, whizzing through the Baroque buildings of the Quattro Canti and past the grand Palermo Cathedral, with its eclectic mix of architectural styles. Bike tours are a better way to go if you're looking to delve into the narrow alleys and seek out hidden Palermo secrets between the alcoves and arches.


Peeking into churches whenever in Palermo

Unlike on the beaches of Sicily, life in Palermo never grinds to a halt. This is the capital, after all – lived-in and home to huge groups of students, to boot. Even in the winter months, between December and March, you'll find street markets sprawling through the lanes and the churches packed with culture-hungry travellers. That said, Palermo holiday rentals are always at their most popular in the summer. That starts early in Sicily, around May, and the temperature doesn't cool again until the middle of September.

Natural features

Creeping up to Capo Gallo in Palermo

Ranging from the boat-filled harbours of Bagheria in the south-east to the wiggling headland of Isola delle Femmine in the north, Palermo covers one huge swathe of the Sicilian coastline. Glowing bays of sand are right on the doorstep of Palermo holiday rentals in Mondello, where art deco mansions flank the palm-lined promenades. They creep upwards to the ridges of the Capo Gallo Reserve, a protected area that packs exotic orchids and aromatic camomile into every cleft of its high cliffs, hiding crashing waterfalls and mountain ponds behind.
