Out and about nearby

Palermo is home to some of the world's greatest examples of Arab-Norman architecture, particularly the San Giovanni degli Eremiti, the Palazzo Reale and its striking Cappella Palatina mosaics, and La Martorana. Outside Palermo, Monreale is the greatest work of Norman architecture in Sicily, and houses 12th and 13th century mosaics and cloisters. Palermo is an excellent location in which to try the range of Sicilian wines, with streets laden with wine shops and cellars and vineyards covering much of the surrounding landscape. To get a real sense of the city, perhaps take one of the many themed walking tours: from street art, historic cars, fishing history, cemeteries, to gardens. While here, make sure you explore Sferracavallo, Palermo's fishing village, the small temple on top of Monte Gallo, the Mondello city garden, and the port.
