Palermo
The Essential
Highly recommended
Visitors experience a real mix of emotions when exploring Palermo - delight at the city's beautiful location, excitement at driving through its traffic-packed streets, awe at its rich heritage and finally, a sinking of the heart when faced with the neglect that is still evident in certain districts. However, in 2015 Palermo was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Arab-Norman architecture, and as a result the city is once again blossoming, aided by the support and enthusiasm of its inhabitants.
