Cradle of the Sicilian nobility
The splendid palazzi that crown the streets of Palermo are a legacy of the nineteenth century nobility, when the city was the jewel of Sicily. Today, there’s no other Italian city like Palermo – its ancient and medieval district is the second largest in the country, after Rome. For the locals, life is challenging, but for tourists the city offers unforgettable experiences in great dining, excellent shopping and fascinating history.
