Our tips for Palermo

Plan ahead: It's always worth planning a little before you go. If you take a Palermo hop-on hop-off bus tour, then research which places you'd like to see. The opera house and Cathedral are good examples. Take your hop-on bus tour, get your bearings and then head back to the places that are of genuine interest. It's a great way to make the most of your trip. Look left and right: It goes without saying that the roads in and around Palermo can be chaotic. Make sure you look both ways when you cross the road! Learn a bit of the lingo: It's always good to learn a few words on your travels. Pick up a few Italian words and a bit of body language, and you'll be surprised. People will love you for trying.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Palermo gets hot in the summer, so to visit when the temperature is more favourable, you need to head there in late spring or early autumn. Palermo, remember, has a Mediterranean climate, and the Sirocco winds often raise the temperature a few degrees! Stick to spring.
Getting around
Walking around Palermo is a joy. You'll obviously get to see the sights better, but don't forget the hop-on hop-off bus tour. It's a great way to get around. There is also a local bus service, which connects all parts of the city. Although the further out of town you are, the harder it is to get around. Taxi is another option if public transport is not your thing.
Stay Safe
Is Palermo safe? Contrary to the many stereotypes, Palermo is relatively safe with low crime rates. Of course, as with most cities, there are pickpockets, so just make sure your belongings are close by.
