Palermo is the regional capital of Sicily, which is the largest and most heavily populated (about 5,000,000) island in the Mediterranean.
The area has been under numerous dominators over the centuries, including Roman, Carthaginian, Byzantine, Greek, Arab, Norman, Swabian and Spanish masters. Due to this past, to the cultural exchange that for millennia has taken place in the area, the city is still an exotic mixtute of many cultures. Many of the monuments still exist giving the city somewhat unique appearance.
The city of Palermo, including the province of Palermo, has around 1,300,000 inhabitants and has about 200 Km of coastline. The old town of Palermo is one of the largest in Europe, full of references to the past.
Palermo reflects the diverse history of the region in that the city contains many masterpieces from different periods, including romanesque, gothic, renaissance and baroque architecture as well as examples of modern art.
The city also hosts it's rich vegetation of palm trees, prickly pears, bananas, lemon trees and so on. The abundance of exotic species was also noticed by the world-famous German writer Goethe who in April 1787 visited the newly opened botanical gardens, describing them as "the most beautiful place on earth".
It may well become your own no. 1 pick!
Plenty of life day and night yet very discreet and quiet. Bars, cafes, restaurants, beach and sports facilities, hiking, surfing, dance floors, and all you can think of right at the tip of your fingers.
Escursions most everywhere around Sicily also available on a daily basis. Don't miss out on visiting Palermo's extraordinary artistic and historical features, just catch a tourist bus at the stop in front of the apartment and visit freely, or book one of the many language-assisted guided tours. If needed, English and French personal guide available ... I could well take on for free the job if I like you .... and viceversa, of course! ;-)
