Palermo, Sicily and Surroundings

Palermo is the capital city of the island of Sicily, an autonomous region located South of Italy. Everywhere you go in Palermo, you will surround yourself by its rich history of the ancient world; from Byzantine art and Roman ruins to Baroque architecture, you are sure to marvel at the city’s past. Palermo is also known for its vibrant culture, with various museums, such as Sicily’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and a grand opera house, famous for being the third largest in the whole of Europe. Food and wine are another cornerstone of the city, with bustling food markets, cannoli stalls and family run restaurants.
