Sicily - Palermo (Chapter)
This is the Palermo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sicily guidebook.
Flamboyant, guarded, feisty yet staunchly aristocratic, Palermo is a seething mass of contradictions. Enter a church full of Byzantine mosaics, wander along a street of stately baroque palaces or eavesdrop on banter between market stall owners and bargain-hunting housewives here.
- bask in Palermo’s heady multicultural past amid Byzantine mosaics and Arabic marble-work at Cappella Palatina
- demand an encore at Teatro Massimo, one of Europe’s opera house belles
- dive into a gut-rumbling torrent of buxom produce at Mercato di Ballarò, and take in the heady aromas and hollering market vendors
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Palermo, Historic Palermo, Albergheria & Capo, Vucciria & La Kalsa, New City, Baroque Cathedrals, Palermo Region, Mondello, Monreale, Corleone and Ustica.
