What to do in
The city’s only nickname already promises a wonderful holiday. What is it? The happy city! And this happiness is nurtured by the unfailing sunshine that lights up even the narrowest of alleys in the old town, drying the laundry that hangs in the windows and caressing the green plants that brighten the balconies. The azure skies are perfect for strolling slowly around a city in the midst of a revival, which is modernised and safe, but still beautiful.

What is the best time of year to visit Palermo?
Situated at the very south of Italy’s boot and next to the Mediterranean, Palermo has a pleasant climate all year round. However, the capital of Sicily is most inviting in spring and early autumn, when the fruits of local production are at their best and the sun is not too strong. Remember, although Palermo is on the coast, it does not have any beaches. In summer, tourists abandon the city in the day and head for Mondello, a little exotic paradise. Another solution is to explore beyond Palermo for a few days and discover the rest of Sicily, which could not be more enchanting.
