Cruise Ports Mediterranean Europe - Palermo, Sicily, Italy (PDF Chapter)
This is the Palermo, Sicily chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cruise Ports Mediterranean Eu-rope guidebook.
For millennia at the crossroads of civilisations, Palermo delivers a heady, heavily spiced mix of Byzantine mosaics, Arabesque domes and frescoed cupolas. This is a city at the edge of Eu-rope and at the centre of the ancient world.

- visit the commanding Arab-Norman Cattedrale di Palermo, then head east to foun-tain-studded Piazza Pretoria
- getting to and from the port
- cap the riches of the day with dinner at Bisso Bistrot
