Palermo Holidays

Gloriously unconventional and slightly disheveled in a charmingly Italian way, Sicily's capital city is a melting pot of cultures and architecture, in fact one saying is that Palermo is 'the most European of North Africa's cities'!. This is a vibrant, colourful and chaotic city full of contrasts, with elegant palazzos, noisy street markets but also stylish modern boutiques. Start with a wander around the old centre, which fans out from the main crossroads of the Quattro Canti, from where the four main quarters of the city begin. There's much to see and do in both the city itself and on day trips out and car hire can be taken for part of your stay. Palermo can also easily be combined with other destinations in Sicily to make a great multi-centre holiday.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Palermo.
