    The formalities for travelling to Palermo

    • Entry requirements: Sicily is Italian, and Italy is a member of the Schengen Area. That means that borders have been abolished, and you just need to bring a valid passport or identity card.
    • Currencies: in Palermo, the people pay for their ice-cream in euros. To make sure you have enough money when you arrive on the island, remember to go to the cash machine in your departure terminal.

    Arriving at Palermo airport

    Falcone-Borsellino Airport only has one terminal. It is located over 30 kilometres from Palermo. To get to the city, you have the following options:

    • The bus: from 05:00 and every half hour until 00:15, the Prestia e Comandè shuttle leaves the airport for Palermo Centrale railway station. There are several stops on the route.
    • The train: the first Trinacria Express leaves at 05:45 and the last leaves at 23:40. There is one departure every half hour, the journey takes just under an hour and the price is reasonable.
    • The taxi.
    • A hire car: There are more than ten local or international car hire companies in the Arrivals Hall
    • Car sharing: however, it is not certain that a vehicle will be available at the station situated outside the terminal, on the other side of the bus lane, at the entrance to the paid car park. But there’s no harm in trying!

What to do in
Palermo ?

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.

    Associated with the terrible Sicilian Mafia, Palermo has long suffered from an unfavourable reputation. Luckily, those days are over. The capital of Sicily is no less safe than the cities of Italy. That means you can safely visit as a couple, with friends or even as a family with your children, to discover the two faces of a city of contrasts.
    There is Palermo the glorious… that of all the conquerors who for a thousand years have come to this shore, marking their power and their beliefs with fabulous monuments, enriching the city’s heritage without destroying what their predecessors left behind.
    Then, there is Palermo the modest… a city of simple pleasures: the taste of panelle (little chickpea fritters), an ice-cold lemon granita, the rainbow stalls of Ballarò market, or the soft sand of Mondello beach

    • Step inside the imposing Palazzo dei Normanni (Palace of the Normans), the seat of power since ancient Rome, to discover the gem inside: the Palatine Chapel, which mixes the Roman, the Byzantine and the Arabic. Dazzling!
    • Walk alongside the Santa Maria Assunta Cathedral, which combines the charms of an Oriental palace and a Christian church.
    • Rest a while on Piazza Pretoria, next to its Renaissance fountain, then walk just a little further to the heart of the city: the Quattro Canti. Four streets, four Baroque buildings: a superb place!
    • Visit the unbelievable Church of the Gesù, an Italian Baroque masterpiece. Every square centimetre is decorated with moulding, sculptures, frescoes and marble.
    • Make time for a look at the internal courtyards and faded façades of the palaces along Via Maqueda, walking until you get to the Capo market and the Teatro Massimo, the biggest opera house in Italy.
    • Grab breakfast on the go at the Vucciria Market, and take your tastebuds on a daring adventure by trying an unusual local speciality: pani câ meusa, a veal lung and spleen sandwich. Sicily’s answer to the hamburger!
    • In the warm season, take bus 806, which is the easy way to get to the sandy beaches and crystalline waters of Mondello, a cove worthy of the Caribbean.
    • Descend into the catacombs of the Capuchin Monastery, to discover the 8000 mummies of monks and Palermo’s wealthy. Not for the faint-hearted.
    • Wander along the paths of Palermo Botanical Garden, which is one of the most beautiful in the world with its 10,000 different species and its gigantic Moreton Bay Fig, imported from Australia almost two centuries ago.
    • Relax on the huge lawns or the colourful benches of the Foro Italico, a long pedestrian promenade by the Mediterranean.
