About

About the area

Palermo is a mosaic city that encompasses all the colours and all the history of the Mediterranean. An interweaving of cultures that continue to pulsate: Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, French Angevins, and Spanish. Its centre leads from mosques to the cathedral, from Hellenistic ruins to the Royal Palace where Emperor Frederick II grew up. The majesty of the Baroque dominates the urban design of the main streets, such as Corso Vittorio Emanuele, where surprising squares open up. And then there are the refined creations of Art Nouveau, which have their most elegant expression in the Villa Igea Hotel. Palermo should not be visited: it should be experienced, letting yourself be overwhelmed by its warm liveliness. Wander through the small streets of the centre, discovering wonders such as the roofless naves of the medieval Basilica of the Spasimo, transformed into a space for exhibitions and concerts, or wander among the stalls of the traditional markets, from Vucciria to Ballarò, amidst the most authentic scents. But you can also choose café tables for a coffee and almond granita - the Sicilian substitute for cappuccino - accompanied by a brioche filled with ice cream. Yes, the cuisine here is a triumph. And in addition to the restaurants that offer the island's rich menu at its best - from pasta alla Norma to pasta with sardines, from swordfish rolls to sarde a beccafico - there is the authentic taste of finger foods, with arancine (fried rice balls), panelle (fried bread), focaccia, and pani câ meusa (bread with tomato sauce). All to be tasted together with the local wines, delicate whites and robust reds, but without forgetting to leave room for the delights of cannoli, cassate and almond cakes, to be paired with a glass of passito. The last toast to salute an unforgettable stay.
