Getting around Palermo

The best way to see Palermo’s medieval center is on foot. All the sights are close enough that you won’t need more than your own two feet. The rest of the city is another story, and you’ll need to travel via bus or taxi. Buy bus tickets at tobacco shops before you board, and the bus will take you anywhere you need to go, including as far out as Monreale or Mondello. Trips made within a set time period cost a flat fare, or you can buy an all-day pass. For major sights and attractions, you may want to take the Giro Citta tourist bus. The bus travels in a loop, so you’ll get on and get off at Teatro Politeama. Buy your tickets on board. Buses are very convenient, but they can be slow. For a faster trip, call for a taxi or pick one up at a stand. You can also rent a taxi for an entire day.

Palermo Travel Information

  • Architecture fiends and art gurus will have a field day perusing Palermo’s streets. Formerly under Roman, Carthaginian, Byzantine, Greek, Norman, Swabian and Spanish domain, the city is home to an eclectic mix of architecture from a handful of civilizations and the ruins are fascinating to behold. Most tourists booking flights to Palermo make a beeline for the Cappella Palatina, whose stunning mosaics were recently restored to their 12th century splendor. Save the Cappella Palatina for a day when you’re not on a set schedule: The lines at the chapel are long due to the popularity of the attraction, but the sights inside are well worth the wait. The Castello della Zisa is another popular site for its beautifully preserved latticework windows, as well as its collection of Arabic crafts and Islamic art.
  • For those interested in attending an Italian opera or beautifully staged ballet, head to the Teatro Massimo in Piazza Verdi. The theater is one of the largest in Europe and its restored neoclassical interiors provide a gorgeous setting for performances. Even if you’re not a huge fan of high-pitched arias and tour-jetes, it would be a shame to miss out on a visit to the Teatro Massimo before your return Palermo flight.
  • If you were lucky enough to score a seat on a flight to Palermo during the summer months, drop your bags off immediately after your arrival and head straight for the beach! There are plenty of public beaches along the Sicilian shore and the best stretches of sand in the country are just a stone’s throw from downtown Palermo. Mondello Beach, though crowded during high season, is a local favorite, as is Cefalu for its long stretches of sand.
  • The catacombs under the Capuchins Monastery are in the Piazza Cappuccini. In 1599, the monks discovered that the catacombs had a preservative that helped mummify the dead, a discovery that made the grottos very popular with the locals. The oldest corpses date from the late 16th century and the last corpse is two-year-old Rosalia Lombaro, who died in 1920. Visitors can wander through the catacombs’ corridors among the mummified bodies.
